MUSIC, ART, AND STYLE AT UP TOWN CENTER

All roads led to UP Town Center last July 24 for MAS! (more music, art, and style at Ayala Malls) by Style Origins. Filled with wonderful booths and a flashing runway, UP Town Center showcased all of its brands with amazing energy and entertainment. Adventure awaits! 

I’ve always been a fan of UP Town Center so it was an honor to be invited to such a colorful event. Before walking toward the much-awaited runway, the event had an amazing variety of booths— which I happily indulged in (of course I would! there was free food!).

Food lovers would see familiar dining brands like 8 Cuts Burger Blends and La Lola Churros.

When the models entered the runway, I was impressed by the wonderful combinations they wore. I always love events of Style Origins because my knowledge to pull off a successful ensemble expands. You also get to have more ideas when it comes to fashion and culture.

The runway was hyped by the mad skills of DJ Carlo Atendido, each brand had a different flavor so props to the DJ for accommodating the mood.

Once again, I am drooling over cameras and lenses like this one. I really have to save up for new lenses!

I spotted this beautiful creature, again. In one of my previous posts (Road to Gurgaon, India) she was also present. I wonder if she's aware that I'm always taking a picture of her-- No creeper vibes, intended though!

Spotted this guy while attending the event. Who knew I would share the same passion he has in blogging? Fun fact: Miko was my former teammate in our high school dance team. Step Move Dance, Hataw! | Miko Carreon: The Style Architect
