There really is no accounting for taste, especially when it involves fashion and aesthetics.
In the recent Greenbag Fashion Show Challenge of Miss Philippines Earth 2015 and SM Markets, the objective was simple: create an outfit using the eco-friendly bags of the supermarket chain. And all the candidates, together with their handlers and sewers, coordinated in coming up with a variety of get-ups that went from simple and flirty to downright traditional (or Filipinina if you will).
As expected, the ones who ruled the event were those who wore tastefully-made originals that made use of the barest accessories and went all-out to making the greenbags the star of the creation. Miss Cagayan de Oro City Beatrice Alvarez wore a black two-piece dress that utilized all the available eco-greens for the butterfly cut-outs that were sewn into the same. The result is a winner. It topped all the presented designs.
2nd Placer Jian Cayla Salazar of Guinobatan, Albay went for a black one-shoulder cocktail number that was cleanly-executed and fashionably worn by her.Congratulations to the winners! 😉
