Yesterday afternoon at the Atrium of Uptown Mall in BGC, the Press Presentation of GLAM (Global Asian Model) Philippines was held with the head of Empireph – Jonas Gaffud – presiding over the event.
This competition is structured more like a model search where hints of pageantry can hardly be seen. And it was quite clear that the contenders are styled for the runway and the like. The male and female candidates were introduced from where our representatives to Manhunt International 2018 in Gold Coast Australia, GLAM (Global Asian Model) International here in Manila and Best Model of the World in Turkey will be selected.
Here are photos by Joy Arguil from the presentation, including some of the candidates (10 male and 17 female).
Finals will be happening on November 5 at XyLo in BGC. But for now, do watch Episode 1 below of the casting and selection for GLAM Philippines.
