Mr Gay World Philippines 2016 John Raspado in his latest photoshoot with Ahleks Fusilero
Kudos to the Mr Gay World Philippines Organization for collaborating with ace photographer Ahleks Fusilero in coming up with the theme for the latest photoshoot of Mr Gay World Philippines 2016 John Raspado with that very red carnation (national flower of Spain
) covering his lower body. This is to start drumming up support for the upcoming Mr Gay World 2017 finals which will be held in Madrid and Maspalomas from May 5-10.
John is eyeing the big prize. And he wants nothing more than to bring home the Mr Gay World crown and be the first Filipino (and Asian) to actually win the honor. Kagandahang Flores is in-charge of his pageant training and preparations no less.
For more updates on the annual contest and to be on the loop for information as to how to support John in Mr Gay World 2017, keep on checking the FB page of Mr Gay World Philippines Organization.
Let us support John Raspado in his mission of becoming the country’s first Mr Gay World

This blog feature comes at just the right season. Christmas is starting to warm up and in just a few more weeks, the holiday spirit will be going full blast. And my favorite shoemaker is launching a line that widens his coverage of practically all age brackets. And this should make a lot of moms and dads smile and make sure that their kids are among the first to own a pair.
Bragais™ Kids is finally here! The images in this post will melt even the coldest of hearts. With very adorable and good-looking tykes/siblings Mishka and Nicole Baylosis modeling for the new collection of Jojo Bragais, you cannot help but also look at the eye-catching pairs of footwear that they are wearing. Simply must-haves for the young ones!
If you are interested to get a pair of Bragais™ Kids for your kids, nephews, nieces or anybody young and special, then you know the drill. Jojo Bragais is ready to take your orders when you are. Act now because the queue is filling up fast. You don’t want to receive them after the Holidays right? 😉

The country sashes are ready!
Mister Model International 2016 will be held in New Delhi, India on November 20
Mister Model International Philippines 2016 – from Gentlemen of the Philippines – Job Piamonte Abogado is the next male titleholder to compete after Mister Universal Ambassador 2016 2nd Runner-Up and now Mister Southeast Asia International 2016 Andrea Biondo.
The 25 year-old native of Cabusao, Camarines Sur stands 6’1″ and is oozing with a lot of exotic appeal – curly hair or not. He has previous modeling stints on the ramp and has parlayed these skills in the national male competition to earn the ticket to New Delhi, India where Mister Model International 2016 will have its finals night on November 20.
At the moment, he has been steadily doing his fitness routines in the gym and training on public relations and Q&A (with yours truly). Of course, Belmeré Skin Center has been taking care of his skin but we advised him not to get any fairer than his current skin tone so that he will stand out in the bigger challenge up ahead.

Best of luck, Job (who I fondly call “anak”)! You will definitely make us proud in Mister Model International 2016! 😉
Art Hearts Fashion Week Los Angeles will run from October 9-12
First, here are the credits for the photoshoot of Rocky Gathercole’s latest collection:
COLOUR OF MY LOVE
ART HEARTS FASHION WEEK
#artheartsfashion #ilabrg #newyork #canada #lafw #hollywood #lasvegas #2017collection #miami #carson #austin #london #avantgarde #losangeles #verygathercole #celebritydesigner #rockygathercole #forthestarsfashionhouse
From October 9-12, Art Hearts Fashion Week Los Angeles will present the collections of various Designers. One of them happens to be a personal favorite – Rocky Gathercole.
I just love Rocky’s aesthetics and execution. I don’t usually veer towards a lot of bright and neon-like colors but this particular collection grabs my attention instantly. And with the images taken by Ahleks Fusilero, the designs come to life. Each piece shows how meticulous Rocky can get in polishing the small details and all.
So if you will be in the Los Angeles area late next week till the 12th, do catch the presentation of his designs at The Beverly Hilton on 9876 Wilshire Blvd. 😉
In these Ahleks Fusilero photographs, you can see the latest conceptual theme shoot for Bragais where the team went to a private resort and had the models shot wearing the latest heels collection underwater – like mermaids floating and synchronized to present an aquarium show like no other. Truth be told, this turned out to be an intensely demanding pictorial as the natural elements did not fully cooperate. But in the end, everything turned out as expected. And soon, you will see the creative shots with Yvethe Santiago, Cindy Madumma, Pamela Jones and Janelle Olafson plus Gentlemen of the Philippines-Mister Model Intetnational titleholders Arcel Yambing and Job Abogado.

Christi McGarry, Hillarie Parungao and Charmaine Elima for Bragais Brides as styled by Domz Ramos and photographed by Ahleks Fusilero
Before anything else, let me congratulate my favorite shoemaker and “anak” Jojo Bragais for the formal reveal of his Bragais Brides
Collection which comes at just the right time of the year.
What is a little more interesting is the set of models he got for the promotional shoot of the same. There is Miss World Philippines 2015 Hillarie Parungao. And then there is Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2015 Christi Lynn McGarry. And finally, there is the sparkling Charmaine Elima.
What could this endorsement be saying to local pageant fans? Will she hang up the Cabin Crew uniform within the year to start training for her anticipated comeback in the nationals? Is this a hint of her appearance in Bb. Pilipinas 2017?
Well, your guess is as good as mine, dear readers! 🙂

Trixie Maristela is effortless in this Ahleks Fusilero photograph
The competition for Miss International Queen 2015 won’t start until late October in Pattaya, but Miss Gay Manila 2015 Trixie Maristela wants to start making a bit of noise by posting her latest pictorial with Photographer Ahleks Fusilero where she is captured by the lens in a classic and captivating mood. Her image above is like the painting of a beautiful woman on canvas brought to life. Quietly arresting in effect.
The one below, where her gown by Mara Chua is shown in full, elicits an air of sophistication.
These shots are intended for Trixie’s set card with Viva Artists Agency which manages her now. But personally, I think they also serve to sustain good presence in social media. And she promises to come up with more. 😉
