MEGA Magazine: "The Big Fashion Issue" Launch Party

MEGA Magazine is the Philippines' best fashion magazine and also one of my personal favorites to read and browse through. Although it has enjoyed tremendous success over the years, this month is an extra special one for the magazine because it launches its biggest issue yet! And I mean that quite literally because the September 2014 issue has a total of 436 pages of pure unadulterated fashion. In addition to that, it also boasts the fact that it features four cover girls: Julia Barretto, Erich Gonzales, Maja Salvador, and Kathryn Bernardo. These four girls are currently at the top of their game in the Philippine entertainment industry and are very influential in our country's society of young Filipinas. The best part? The editorial for MEGA was actually shot in South Africa! How amazing is that?

That is why I was extremely ecstatic when I found out that I scored a ticket to the launch party of MEGA Magazine's Big Fashion Issue! Of course, part of the fun of attending a huge event such as this one was picking out what to wear. The theme was "Safari Chic" and after much consideration, I ended up putting together this outfit. (Fashion tip: Wearing two similar prints works when they're in two different colors)

Kimono: DIY
Necklace: FUDGE ROCK
Bracelet: FOREVER 21

When we arrived at the event, the first thing we did was take photos. After all, you can't take the fashion blogger out of the girl.

When the doors finally opened, we were greeted with a grand lounge where the sponsors had set up their booths.

When we were finally inside the actual theater room, we all took our seats and the event officially began.

Of course, the evening started off with a brief introduction about MEGA and its Big Fashion Issue by none other than Sari Yap, MEGA's Editor-In-Chief.

When the four stunning cover girls came out onto the stage, the crowd went crazy. Every single time that Kathryn Bernardo's name was mentioned, it was almost as if One Direction was there lol.

A short documentary film was shown to us depicting the experiences of the MEGA Magazine crew as they traveled to South Africa to shoot their latest fashion editorials.

I really enjoyed watching every single moment of it because it has always been my dream to work for a fashion magazine someday, so it was quite educational for me to see to the entire process of how everything is done behind the scenes. Fashion isn't all about glitz and glamour after all. In fact, I'd say it's only 10% glamour and 90% hard work. However, even the "hard work" seemed like so much fun, and I can't wait to be a fashion journalist after I graduate from college.

The entire team behind MEGA Magazine

Near the end of the event, a huge announcement was made by Sari Yap. She is officially relinquishing her position as the magazine's Editor-In-Chief and has chosen to pass on the responsibility to Peewee Reyes Isidro. This is such a great honor and I loved what Sari Yap said with regards to her choice of successor: "The person who deserves power is the one who does not seek for it".

Congratulations, Ms. Peewee Reyes Isidro!!! New and exciting times are coming for MEGA Magazine.

Congratulations also to the four cover girls! You all looked absolutely beautiful tonight.
