the greenbelt 4 spring/summer (?) show
as is the tradition in greenbelt 4, at the beginning of the season, they hold a mini fashion show to present the current collections. (although they had to cancel 2007's fall/winter show as it was scheduled on the day trillanes decided to "check in" at the pen.) so tonight, we were looking forward to a real fashion show, kahit mini lang. instead we got an accessories show. the brands presented were mostly SSI—wait, it was all SSI, save for bulgari, pero pareho na rin 'yon, same owner—and mostly bags. the models wore either black shifts or black unitards (the better for you to see the bags, my dear), and for the jewelry portion, white jersey dresses (black might have been better. diamonds look better against black, and those dresses were nakakasilaw na puti). and so we saw the bags... not that much variety... and nothing that exciting...nothing really caught our eye... we were more intrigued by this lady across us. in fairness, ang ganda ng bag niya ha. real kaya? sa kanya kaya??anyway, back to the bags... can somebody please tell us, are all these bags REALLY from the spring/summer 2008 collections??well, let's just say that last december, after lunch at M café, we walked through greenbelt 4 to get to our car. as we passed by gucci, we saw this dress in the window and we really really liked it so we whipped out our camera and took a shot.aba, as soon as we did, we were accosted by the plainclothes guard and told, bawal kumuha ng peekchure. talaga, bakit? basta bawal. ah, ganon, ok, anyway we can see this same dress naman on style.com, in ads, and in editorials in all the international fashion magazines. and guess what, we got to see it up close tonight. so there. :-P but there was one really new, really exciting bag we spotted tonight. looky! it's the new weekender PM!they brought in only one piece for the show and if you want to buy it, sorry, but it was previously reserved already. sorry too to the three or so women in the event who wanted to purchase it right there and then. order now! only P118,000!
