Behind the Scenes
We introduce this year’s Generation T, five of whom land spots on this month’s cover
The day started early for the Philippine Tatler team and crew; the dynamic and energetic vibe in the studio could be felt the minute one entered the room. With Bruno Mars and Drake blasting in the background, the set was lit and everyone was wired—amped up for what was expected to be a long day of photoshoots. But with everybody arriving on time and with such a vibrant group of young people—from the photographer to the hair and make-up team—the hours flew right by and the shoot ended ahead of schedule. The cover subjects, together with everybody on set, found plenty of time to banter around and get to know one another. Laughter filled the room as the gentlemen spent downtime cracking jokes.
The selected cover subjects work in different fields— Cris Villonco-Valderrama for theatre arts, Vania Romoff for fashion design, Eduardo Zobel for visual arts, and Ian Paradies and Eric Dee for food and beverage—so there was definitely a lot to be learnt from each one.
The cover subjects, all from Generation T’s 2017 batch, took their turns for hair and makeup and gamely fitted clothes from brands such as Comme des Garçons, Balenciaga, and Brooks Brothers. For the full photoshoot and story, turn to p. 170.
