Style Origin 5: Alabang Town Center

It was Sunday and we figured this one would be a working but fun experience.  Going down south to Alabang from Makati can be done 12 minutes via the newly opened Skyway--so rushing to catch the second rehearsal by noon for the Style Origin show wasn't going to be a problem at all.  Without it, it would have taken us an hour to get there.  Call time for the models for their first rehearsal was at 9am, for our team it was around noon.

Stage setting.
No other production I.D. so today I was a model.
The flow of the show.
Director Jackie Aquino (in black), my team and parents of the kids participating in the show here waiting for sound check.
And the band played on.
Models minutes before rehearsals seemed like a haze.
Ms Resorts World- PMAP model Wendy Tabulasa with a good morning wave.
The set up in the mall was almost the same as Glorietta except for two things:  first, the backdrop of the stage was white(instead of red--check out my previous entry) and lastly, backstage was a wee bit small.  36 brands, 12 big racks,40 models, 36 dressers, stylists and production staff--backstage was a riot.  Anyway, we managed to come even before our scheduled time and this author took snaps of the rehearsals.  And for a sunday morning, this wasn't just your ordinary wake up call.

The styling team had to step out for a bit outside the mall to take snaps for this entry.  That day was really hot and we were rushing to do this photo op because we had to hurry to go backstage.  The show was going to start early because there were again a lot of cute kids involved. But we never fail to strike a pose.

The band playing this time around was the show's favorite rock star--the famous Rico Blanco (who also did our Trinoma show).  Spirits were high and energy was quite upbeat.  It was a 35 minute event and everyone seemed to have a great deal of fun.  We are having a quick break for the Holy Week holidays but Style Origin will be back for the Market Market event on April 30.  Hope you guys can still follow us for the remaining five events for the series.  

Rico Blanco.
It's a wrap!!!
