Bench + Rajo Show 2012

It was very timing that my Manila trip was in lined with Philippine Fashion Week. I’m very thankful by Rajo, himself for inviting me and putting me on the list and to bring some of my friends. Officially, this is my first time attending Philippine Fashion Week and I’m really excited for the incoming ones. Thank you once again, Rajo and excited to see you soon!

Anyway, back to the show, as requested to show family and friends support to Rajo, we were told to wear pink. And this is what I wore holding the new Eau De Toilette of Bench + Rajo Laurel, Rajo Dos. I’ll show you more details of his new perfume at the end of this post or maybe some other post. hhhmm.

The crowd was screaming for this boy and he goes by the name of

Enchong Dee

There was so much ENERGY!!

I was amazed when I saw these male dancers dancing, jumping and all kinds of body action gracefully. And they were doing it all in 4″ –  5″ heels!

Color Bonanza!

Street dance / competition, Color Bonanza, and Fashion = this show

Go Joey Mead!

Loving the feather headpiece and wondering if I can find something similar in Cebu.

Then there were drums beating and all of sudden these group of CheerDance Groups came out with gymnast moves.

Super Proud to see that UP was one of them! Go fellow Isko & Iska!

Then the marching bands converge in the middle of the stage. Can you find where Rajo is here?

Rajo giving his inspiring speech from humble beginnings to this bongga show!

Then Rajo teaching his Dance. I think it was Rajo Uno – Dos. hehe

The dancers and models grabbing people from the audience to join in.

From Fashion show, it became a Dance Club!

I’ve been wanting to have a picture with him when I was part of the Bench Show in Cebu and I was super happy that he remembered me. Butterflies. haha

A few ladies who I just love the dresses. Of course, all by Rajo Laurel.

At the same time, there was a Bench Booth showcasing the collaboration of Bench and Rajo Laurel.

And here is one of them, The Rajo Uno and Rajo Dos Perfume Line.

I brought this one home. The scent was more of me than the Uno.
