Rags2Riches: High Seas. Spring/Summer Collection 2014

I got invited to this event via email. When I decided to formed this blog a year ago, I know what purpose it will be --that is to promote Filipino brands. I will blog about the event soon.

This summer, R2R dare you to reclaim your freedom. Go on meaningful adventures, create new and beautiful stories, and take an R2R bag with you on your journey. Come on: let's make this summer count.  The bags from the High Seas collection will be available in the R2R store in Glorietta 1 starting Saturday, March 22. Rag2Riches is on the 3rd floor, located between National Bookstore and Vanilla Cupcake Bakery. 

"There is humanity woven into every bag." 
Rags2Riches Inc. is the Philippines' foremost for-profit social enterprise. We create 
eco-ethical fashion and home accessories out of upcycled scrap cloth, organic materials 
and indigenous fabrics, and by working with artisans living in the poor communities 
across the country. 
In a world where fashion is often seen as excess, an R2R bag is proof that style 
and sustainability can coexist. By transforming upcycled scrap cloth into beautiful 
fashion pieces, we are able to integrate conscientious design into our work. 
In a world where fast and cheap labor is sought, R2R places the highest value on 
every person's humanity and dignity. We are proud to work with partner artisans who 
come from all over the Philippines – from the densely populated communities of the 
capital, to the mountain range tribes of the South. R2R is a life and livelihood partner for 
these empowered and dignified artisans, as they strive to weave better futures for their 
families and communities. 
As a social enterprise, we go beyond charity and beyond aid. We create meaningful, 
high value, and sustainable trade. 
As compassionate entrepreneurs, we strive for success that does not leave anyone 
behind. If it's not inclusive, it's not progress. 

Rustan's X Nars Cosmetics Make-up Workshop.

I made it barely on time last March 14, 2014 at Rustan's Edsa Shangrila Mall for this workshop. I got curious on how does this MUA works her magic. I've learned about NARS Cosmetics back in my candy girl days. 
Before getting started, Miss Janice Daoud talked about some mandatory actions we need to do so the workshop would be very engaging. Here, she told us to use the hash tag narsissist when sharing about the workshop with our social media.

Princess Velasco Album Launch at Market!Market! Mall

Before heading to Great British Festival fashion show last March 7, I watched Princess Velasco performed at Market!Market! activity center. It was scheduled at 5 pm but started before 6 pm. I took the opportunity to know how well she sings live.
 She sung "A love to Share" first. I don't know that song and who's the original. ha ha

British Fashion Month Exhibit at Mega Fashion Hall

I headed here after my grocery time with mi madre. It was my first time to check out the area. My agenda was really to have a photo taken with the British Fashion Month wall. They had a contest on twitter wherein part of the mechanics was to have a picture taken with that wall and post it on twitter.

 You might have seen their exhibit in different SM Malls. 


Had a chance to go with mi madre again on the last day of February. This commissary moved to a new and bigger place. Actually, just behind the back of its previous location.
