puey in rio

UPDATE! videos are slowly being uploaded. keep coming back for more! "puey in rio" was directed by melvin mojica, hair and makeup by patrick rosas and his team. and puey's outfits on both nights were designed by iloilo designer bo parcon (a finalist at last year's "project runway philippines"!).

it feels weird to be posting about non-cory things at the moment, but believe us when we say we mourn for her loss just like the rest of the country. but yes life goes on! just ask willie revillame! magpaka-saya tayo!! now back to regular programming...

we spent four days in iloilo to watch a two-night (jul 30 and 31) charity fashion show of puey quiƱones at hotel del rio; hence, "puey in rio," the title of the show. the beneficiary was the new bilibid prison where puey has been holding classes for the inmates for the last couple years. each night was a different show, a different set of clothes, and a different audience—yes, that many people wanted to watch the show! funnily enough, puey isn't even from iloilo. the ballroom was full on both nights—maybe it's because some of the models that night were members of iloilo society. aside from local models, celebrities like priscilla mereilles and bianca king, supermodels joann bitagcol and wilma doesnt, and the pride of iloilo ria bolivar were in the show. (and take note of the fierce shoes by maco custodio and the luscious pearls by jewelmer.) but that's not what made this show different from any other show we've seen, from puey or anyone else. it was more like performance art. the videos below will speak for themselves as you watch puey at work. *clap*clap*clap*

ack! video is taking so long to upload to youtube! to be continued tomorrow...
