Throwback Tuesday today is one of my first fashion shows shot by THE events extraordinaire Eddie Boy Escudero for @mitan2016 and Juliet Tan’s brand called DAACS in a place in Makati, Metro Manila which is a club that holds so many many memories as a teen, ABG’s. This was the 90’s where we all were expecting the 2000’s to be filled with Y2K tech problems invading our lives. Social Media still didn’t exist so interactions were more personal and face to face. I think I was 16 or 17? I wore a colorful paper mâché tube top with beaded strings and a hip hugging long skirt with a foam shark fin, platform heels and Bobby pinned hairband. This was club wear & I lived in it. You’d say my teen years were nothing short of of an adventure and the friends I’ve made during that time were all met at Peps, cable car, ABG’s, Sambo’s, Faces & Mars. It was a really good time and I wouldn’t change a thing! #tbt #clubkid #ninetieswereawesome
