Free­dom Off the Racks

Sun Star Bacolod - - Front Page - BY HEIZ HOFILEÑA MA­CAIRAN

FASHION re­flects a con­tin­u­ous process of change in the style of the ap­parel that are deemed ac­cept­able. Un­doubt­edly, high fashion is for­ever on top. How­ever, not every­one can get their hands on haute cou­ture and de­signer clothes.

In Bacolod City, there is a con­stant surge of prêt-à-porter (pre-da-portey), oth­er­wise known as RTWS, since the dawn­ing of Depart­ment Stores through­out the city (re­mem­ber Ser­vando’s?). These off-the-pegs are of­ten ‘high street’ knock offs which are quite ir­re­sistible to a wide va­ri­ety of Ba­coleño con­sumers.

In cel­e­bra­tion of the Free­dom Month, the Black­out Mod­els strut away for FREE­DOM RUN­WAY while don­ning some edgy Off-the-rack ap­parel by Metro Depart­ment Store in Ayala Capi­tol Central Bacolod. The Free­dom Run­way Event fea­tured only the Black­out Bacolod Prime for a Pre-10th An­niver­sary Spe­cial.

The mod­els were prepped and dressed by Mr. Pat Se­bunga, Ads & Promo Of­fi­cer and Ms. Vic­to­ria Ferolino, Store Man­ager of Metro Depart­ment Store and Su­per­mar­ket

Ditto, the mod­els did an es­ca­la­tor run­way show be­fore walk­ing along the main run­way. The Metro Depart­ment Store Man­age­ment Team also joined the fashion event by show­cas­ing var­i­ous ap­parel on the run­way.

The bot­tom line is, fashion is not just for the priv­i­leged but for every­one with the taste. It’s not about how much you can af­ford, but it’s def­i­nitely a mat­ter of style.*

THE dash­ing Metro mod­els joined the run­way show. L-R Lorenzo Cen­teno, an­tonette gue­varra, Ric Fran­cis Da­m­asco, Annabelle Ma­ca­pas, Kirk Sa­palaran, Belle Luces, Kean Guiza and Khyle Maceda
