Dak Bonite’s Fun and Vibrant Show
Strutting to Queen’s I Want to Break Free, models who wore a vibrant array of reds, pinks, and lavender brought the house down with their playful demeanor and unicorn headbands. Dak Bonite’s Euphoria collection showcased tiered dresses and tailored suits for both men and women. The crowd-favorite show perfectly captured the retro vibe of the ’80s, complete with small-framed glasses in varying hues.
Chris Nick’s Sultry Old Hollywood-Inspired Collection
Black, velvet, high slits and backless dresses- these are what Chris Nick’s Rapture collection was all about. Inspired by old Hollywood glam and the now defunct Studio 54 nightclub, the floor-length dresses and perfectly tailored satin suits are the perfect balance of risqué and elegant.
Deconstructed Denim and Street Rap from Renan Pacson
Paisley prints and denim never looked better. Renan Pacson’ s Shatranj is angsty and edgy street style done right. Deconstructed denim was the star of the show, and we also loved the diverse set of models who walked the runway, with #HypeLolo Junel Quinones leading the group. Temporary tattoos and boteh harnesses also adorned the models bodies, which added an extra oomph that we didn’t know we needed.
Mermaid, but make it fashion with Long Davalos
Yong Davalos made a case for siren dressing and we are totally in love. With sheer dresses and body hugging animal-printed ensembles, the collection, entitled Disco Mermaid, is the coming together of party and beach sultriness. We also loved AsTM’s Jach Manere’s fierce walk on the runway!
Chris Diaz’s Camino
Chris Nick’s collection is the perfect marriage of vintage retro and hazy motel room vibe. Models with perfectly coiffed hair walked the runway, donning silk and velvet, leopard prints and vibrant colors.
Wilbur Lang’s ethereal Wiccan- inspired Collection
Contrast to the explosive and dramatic music that played during the show, Wilbur Lang’s designs are eerie and dainty, a homage to Katharine Hepburn’s style.
