Francesca Versace for BRICS Collection Launch 2013

BRICKSIMG_2704 FashionAteTheLawyer

BRIC’S, the internationally acclaimed 60 year-old Italian luggage brand, recently made the announcement that the BRIC’S – Francesca Versace collection called Travel Sense will debut in Asia here in the Philippines, specifically the BRIC’S Shangri-La Mall’s new East Wing store and in the SM Aura BRIC’S boutique before its launch in other Asian countries.

TRAVEL SENSE traces its origins from cooperation between Bric’s, a top-level testimonial of Italian style in the luggage and accessories market; and Francesca Versace, born in a family of fashion designers and a designer herself. The collaboration stems from an interaction between two different interpretations of travelling: Francesca, for who travel is a reason for life; and Bric’s, whose core-business has been founded on the words industria, valigeria, fine: industry, travel, luggage, and quality.

The collaboration between Francesca and Bric’s combines an interplay of different elements and strikes a perfect balance between technology, tradition, craftsmanship, functionality, quality, and fashion.

The collection of bags and accessories revolves around the theme of travelling which is re-interpreted through the recurring feature of a frame as an element that encloses an entire existence: dreams, desires, emotions and most especially moments that shape one’s life.

A frame – the overall theme selected by Francesca for the Bric’s FV_Bags collection – reflects her personality and her natural talent. It also symbolizes one’s life: dreams, wishes, emotions, and moments that are part of its history. Just like a photo, a place that is rooted deep in one’s heart can be ideally enclosed in a frame.

Attilio Briccola, BRIC’S commercial director said: “This partnership showcases the unmistakable style of Francesca Versace and the performance of reliable and durable materials, craftsmanship and avant garde technology that characterizes the BRIC’S brand.”

As the brand moves forward, BRIC’S continues its on-going progress with research, tradition, innovation, and functionality as the key words; and constant renewal aimed at harmonious combination of taste, style, quality, modernity and usage comfort as exemplified by not only the Francesca Versace collection but also the other collections like the Life, Life Pelle and the Pininfarina among others.

I can never forget Francesca Versace said to me when I’m taking photos for my blog that she can recognize me because of my green hair.

And when her mother ask me why my hair is green, I said, “My hair is naturally green, I just died my roots black” and she was laughing at what I said and She agreed.

It was a night full of show and surprises as they unveiled the Francesca Versace Collection and opened the store in a visually pleasing graphics show.

TWENTY FIVE YEARS of PMAP: THE GRAND REUNION

Presented by POND’S Age Miracle in cooperation with Manila Marriott Hotel, Tresseme, Make-up Store and Belvedere Vodka, “TWENTY FIVE YEARS OF PMAP: The Grand Reunion” is a celebration of a quarter century on top of the modeling industry featuring the country’s top models of the last 25 years as well as the models who will continue to be the apogee of fashion in the years to come.
The Professional Models Association of the Philippines (“PMAP”) has been the only non-profit organization established by models and run by models. The organization has continued to aspire in protecting, uplifting, and professionalizing the modeling industry, as well as highlighting the best that the country has to offer.
In this light, “TWENTY FIVE YEARS OF PMAP: the Grand Reunion,” to be held on the 5th day of November 2012 at the Manila Marriott Hotel Grand Ballroom, is anticipated to be THE fashion event of the year and will officially badge the hallmark of a quarter century in prolific advocacy and acme in the local fashion industry.
Combining glamour, style and creative innovation, the event will showcase a photo exhibit unveiling the beauty of Filipinos and Filipinas across generations by top photographer JUN DE LEON together with his team; Jim and Miguel de Leon also known as the THREE VISIONS. The exhibit will feature PMAP’s best and internationally recognized models: TWEETIE DE LEON-GONZALEZ, APPLES ABERIN, WILMA DOESNT, RISSA MANANQUIL-TRILLO, BUBBLES PARAISO, ORNUSA CADNESS, AND MORE. This remarkable body of extravagance and elegance will be exhibited at the Manila Marriot’s lobby.
Putting the spotlight on the amassed triumph of the organization and its affiliates, a FASHION SHOW evincing PMAP’s next generation of PMAP models and designers, as heralds of said proclamation, will be the paramount spectacle on this regal night. Celebrated director JACKIE AQUINO will direct this premiere event.

Established on February 11, 1987, PMAP aims to “uplift, protect and professionalize the modeling industry in the Philippines, and to develop and stabilize, national and international awareness, participation, involvement and competition, in the field of modeling.”
The PMAP served as a key force in the development and upgrading of the local modeling industry, with the firm belief that, as a united group, models can band and work together for their own protection and progress.
Contrary to some beliefs, the PMAP is not an agency, but a cross between an association and a union of models. Despite the many controversial stands it has taken through the years of its existence, PMAP has managed to survive, strongly united to protect its members from those who sought to undermine their rights.
Members who served as PMAP President include Ronnie Asuncion, JB Abesamis, Tweetie de Leon-Gonzalez, Den Abesamis, Apples Aberin, Grace Molina, Baba Parma, Rissa Mananquil-Trillo and Ariel Atendido. Phoemela Baranda is the current president.
The PMAP is proud to have a line up of veteran models that have topped the fashion industry both here and abroad. A number of our active members are presently in the frontline of commercial and ramp modeling. Past officers and members have included the best in the modeling industry who continue to prove their excellence in their current field of expertise: Tina Maristela-Ocampo, Alta Tan, Izza Gonzales-Agana, Suyene Chi-Sia, Lawrence Pineda, Lala Flores-Magpantay, Jan Garcia, Desiree Verdadero-Abesamis,Tetta Ortiz-Matera, Annette Coronel, Bea Recto-Agnir, Cassandra Romero, Vivian Veloso, Trixie Chua, Eric Quizon, Boyet Sta.
