Grand Launch of Sartorial Nights at Buddha Bar x Frederick Peralta's collection

Friday, May 3, 2012. I was at the grand launch of Buddha Bar Manila's Sartorial Nights where every Friday night. will be a night full of beautiful and fashionable people and everyone gets the chance to be awarded as the Sartorial Night man and woman every Friday, with special prizes for the winners. So you better be dressed to the nines every Friday at Buddha Bar Manila. The grand launch was definitely a superb event because I met a lot of stylish people, my blogger friends and lastly I got the chance to witnessed Frederick Peralta's very regal and divine collection modeled by the supermodels of the Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP).

Cool niya and sobrang fun kasama.

Fashyown friends! 
Jon Salazar, Miguel, Irene and Carvey. 


So, before the event starts I took the privilege to go around the whole place. I'm amazed with the interior and designs of this establishment, truly a world class bar, lounge and restaurant. I will definitely visit this place again with my friends. Daming pasikot sikot hahah medyo nakakahilo! hahahha fyi this is a 3-storey establishment tapos 7 star pa siya! bongga!.

This will not be called as Buddha bar without the Buddha itself! hahahha 
may isang malaking statue ng buddha! amaaaaaaaaaazing! 

The event was hosted by Phoemela Baranda. Gaaaaah! she is gorgeous in person medyo nag fan boy lang ako habang nag ho-host siya ng event. hahahaha

Of course she is wearing a gown from Frederick Peralta that night. 

Then the fashion show started! introducing Frederick Peralta's collection. 
Enjoy!. I guess you already figured out/knew my technique and style when I'm covering a fashion show. My technique and style was inspired by New York times fashion photographer Bill Cunningham, grabe napanuod ko lang yung docu film niya, sobrang nakaka inspire talaga, kaya panuorin niyo na! hahahah. 

This gold ensemble is definitely a show stopper! and I love it because this dress opened the show. 

Metallic Glamour!.

Congratulations Frederick Peralta for showcasing a wonderful and superb collection and also to Buddha Bar Manila for a successful grand launch of Sartorial Nights. 

So next Friday, you better dress up!. Flaunt your best outfit and dance the night away. Be in your most glamorous attire and get a chance to win awesome prizes like an iconic french bag worth over 100,000. Go visit Buddha bar manila's facebook page click here and also their website click here.
