Honestly, I don’t know where to begin because I’m still so giddy from last night! :)) So I’ll probably just tell you how I got invites first! :>
To those who are fans of Allison and Dominique, we all know that Bench is holding contests in Facebook and also Twitter. But we didn’t know that they are giving invites if you buy stuff from their store. Tricky, eh? Luckily, I got to visit Bench MOA last Thursday and fortunately found a poster about the event. I initially didn’t believe I could make it but when I asked the cashiers if the invites are still available, they happily said yes! :D So, I hurriedly bought stuff just to reach PhP800 and got my first invite. Minutes later, I realized that I’ll be going alone with just one invite so I asked the cashiers again if I could buy another set so I could get another invite. They weren’t sure about it but they allowed me. Haha! So yep, finally, I have two invites and I’ll be going with my mom! ♥
On the day of the fashion show, yesterday, I wore a dress and commuted from Cavite. I don’t care if I’ll be riding a jeepney wearing a dress.. I just want to see Allison! :)) My mom and I ate our early dinner before 5pm and started walking towards SMX right after. I didn’t expect that other people would be already there that early since gates open at 6:30. Thank God we went early too because if we didn’t, we probably didn’t have a seat like the others.
While waiting, we saw Michael Carandang in action as he was documenting the event. Too bad I didn’t get a picture with him. So close, so close.
They opened the gates late, btw. And by the time that we entered the function room, I could already feel the magic, I swear. It sounds funny but seriously, I haven’t seen the set yet by I could already feel it. Probably due to too much excitement. :))
We were seated at the last row because the room was already 5/6 full when we got in. Thanks a lot, VIPs. Looking on the bright side, this allowed me to stand up the whole time to take pictures of the show. :)
Also, my expectations were definitely met because the setup was so pretty, magical, wicked, and etc. It’s sooo nice to be in it.. I can’t find the words to describe it but I really loved the set. It’s so Allison! ♥
This swing reminds me of Allison’s Underwater MV. See, I told you, Impalpable is really meant for her! ♥
Few minutes before the start of the show, I saw these kids and assumed that they’ll start the show. I was right. ;) They were such cuties!
The photos above are from the AVP. Her eyes are too pretty to not take photos of. I took pictures even though I should be recording a video. Sorry! :))
After the AVP, the kids walked towards the backstage. I liked their little lamps! :3
Then, finally, the models started coming out! :D I tried my best to take pictures of the dresses but it’s really hard to watch the show and take photos simultaneously! :( I think I got pictures of all the models anyway so here they are. :P
It’s Dominique Reighard, ya’ll! She was so beautiful and sexy. :>
ALLISON HARVARD! ♥ I got tons of pictures of her but these ones are my favorite. She was so pretty, cute, and doll like! :3 One of my dreams just came true thanks to Bench, Michael Cinco, Michael Carandang, and all the people behind this campaign.
Those eyes.. AAHHHH!! ♥
Few seconds later, these men came out. Hot hot hot~
Aaand, Michael Cinco! :-bd *applause*
After Michael Cinco left the runway, it became a set for everyone’s photo op. I did grab my chance of taking photos in it too because, duh, Allison sat and walked on those stuff, so why wouldn’t I? :))
Again, thanks to Bench for bringing Allison Harvard and Dominique Reighard in the Philippines. I might never see them ever if this event didn’t happen. Congratulations to Michael Cinco and to everyone behind this launch. The event was definitely IMPALPABLE. ☺
