Hello! Before anything else, I just want to share the image above that features a Hello Kitty Omamori–nicked shamelessly from Google. It’s your typical, run-of-the-mill lucky amulet, only cutesy, fashionable, and decked in pink; it’s my virtual gift to everyone for making my sixth month in the blogsphere so awe-inspiringly gnarly. If I had unlimited supply, I would hand it out to everyone but as it is, I don’t even have one for myself.
Anyway, I also wanted to thank everyone for participating in the So Fab! contest I mounted a week and a half ago, the turn-about is extremely successful and because you’ve managed to show your support for So Fab!, they are more inclined to put up more contests to give more people a chance of winning.
Congratulations to Deniece Liza, for winning the contest–we’ll be contacting you via email to further discuss about your prize.
Speaking about contests in general, mark your calendars for the hottest summer event of 2011! You’ve heard about it from various bloggers and newspapers, it’s the Risq Fashion Show! The promise is to make it as big as possible, bigger than the Victoria Secret Fashion show, and it’s uniquely Filipino.
Just so you know, RISQ is a search for 11 student designers who vie to become the stars in summer lifestyle fashion. It’s a little bit like Project Runway only done in real-time. The winner will stand to win a cash prize of 150,000 PHP, a fashion business start-up portfolio, features in broadsheets and magazines, along with other exciting prizes.

Though the designers aren’t bigwigs in the industry yet, the show will be hosted by TV personality and model Joey Mead, and directed by renowned show director Floy Quintos. This powerhouse team includes: Richmond Rondolo (stylist/consultant), Riel Balan (Choreographer from the Manoeuvres), Christian Marco (Choreographer from Hotlegs), Jester Jeff De Veyra (Chief of Division at Fortres), Carlo Ma. Guerrero (Business Development Director of Ideal Models International), Joseph Matheu (Lighting Director, Eat Bulaga and Trumpets Playshop), Kristine Soguilon (President & CEO), and Ms. Cristina Tanseco-Guerrero (2010 Go Negosyo Young Filipino Entrepreneur & Ideal Events International Founder & Managing Director).
Anyway, apart from RISQ being purely Filipino, it also seeks to give back to society. A portion of RISQ proceeds will go to the Rotary San Nicholas Street Children’s Foundation. So spread the word and support the Filipino cause–it’s an event everyone can attend!
