X marks the spot
The Manila X Fashion Festival has fashion & music on equal billing
I feel lucky to be a part of the first few people who got to know more about Manila X, the newest and hippest music festival that's about to happen on June 4, 2016 at Globe Circuit Concert Grounds.
Fashion has always been heavily influenced by music, and the same can be said vice-versa. Street style provides evidence: music festivals are as celebrated for fashion as much as its musical acts, so much so that music festival dressing has evolved to be a style genre of its own.
Milking this charmed connection between fashion and music is the Manila X festival where the metro's hottest and finest musical acts perform in the midst of a full blown fashion showcase. And the festival goers are in for a treat! There'll be four fashion shows with models that'll walk the runway in four different fashion themes: grunge, Coachella, sleek and active wear. Each show scored by live musical acts, will also be styled by one of Manila's most sought after celebrity stylists: Bang Pineda, John Paul Dizon, Myrrh Lao To, and the duo Rain Dagala and Em Millan. The hip fashion website Zalora will also hold its own fashion show featuring its in-house brands. During the segment, the festival goers may also purchase the sartorial pieces worn by the models on the spot, entitling the live buyer to exciting promos and discounts.
Manila X Festival also has an exciting line up of the country's best artists, Thyro & Yumi, Kjwan, Up Dharma Down, Gloc 9, Kiana Valenciano, Yeng Constantino and Manila's hippest DJs, DJ Badkiss, Curse & Bless, Jessica Milner, Tom Taus, Marc Marasigan, Mars Miranda and DJ Ace Ramos.
Tickets are available at www.ticketworld.com.ph or on site at the day of the festival. Tickets are sold Php 800.00 for VIP and Php. 500.00 for General Admission.
