Summer is here and it starts now. It has been a rocky, yet fun-filled past couple of weeks juggling my time between my newly launched side hustle and my recently concluded Block Screening for the much touted and awaited film in 2018: The Avengers Infinity War! 🙂 Good thing it was a success as more than 300 people showed up on the day of our screening and the outpouring of support to all those who joined in my online promotions was also something to be overwhelmed and happy about. Thank you to everyone who participated and who came to our event 🙂 Looking forward to more events like those.
So before I digress again about how my week went, let me first recount one of the most memorable events I went to a couple of days back. The Forever 21 Summer Collection 2018 Launch. 🙂
Being in the Corporate World for more than 7 years already, I have already gained significant insights from my peers regarding the power of Corporate Dressing or just showcasing your personality thru your own personal style. I used to follow certain trends or search Pinterest and frequent thrift shops and online stores to check out the latest pieces and styles.
Unfortunately, I had to learn it the hard way that style should not be enforced on you but it should reflect your personality and your emotions naturally. I struggled with ill-fitting pieces trying to fit them in my somewhat big-boned frame. It took me quite some time to realize that some things aren’t just meant to be and that I should go find my own personal style to celebrate my authenticity and show the world who I really am via my fashion and choice of clothes.
So just a couple of days back, I got an invite from one of the most fashion- forward brands in this country Forever21, the invite said that they would be launching something exciting this coming Saturday and I was more than ecstatic to head over to that event 🙂
Since it coincided with the day of our Company outing and the traffic coming in from Batangas was somewhat tolerable that day despite the scorching heat. I tried my best to book a ride heading to the mall as soon as our bus arrived safely in our Company premises.
I wouldn’t want to miss out on all the fun right? 🙂 Upon arriving at the venue, I saw all these models and event attendees donning on their carefully curated and styled outfits as everyone was like a model that day posing by the awesome booths that were styled that day.
Cocktails and little appetizers were passed around as we watched Forever 21 unveil its newest brand ambassadors who gracefully and confidently strutted their way on the runway as they all took centerstage posing with their OOTD’s that day.
The campaign was entitled #WeAreForever21 and is a global campaign which taps unique talents to represent the varied styles featuring its first ever Philippine Brand Ambassadors.
The event wanted to highlight the Filipino youth’s passion for both work and play and these ambassadors best represented the Filipino millennial who are known for their numerous passions and their ability to do them all so well while being stylish all at the same time.
Get to know these new Brand Ambassadors bettter as I give you a quick intro about each one:
