X Marks The Spot: Manila X Festival Puts Fashion and Music on Equal Billing

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Paolo Valenciano directs Manila X Festival, where style meets music and since this is the first run, the organizers are hoping the offspring would be lots of satisfied attendees all excited to join the next run.

Will this be a very challenging project for Paolo who said he is "someone who's not very fashionable" during the media launch held on May 19, 2016 at Cafe Naya at the Palace in Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig city. 

Stylist John Lozano leads this merging of fashion and music which basically puts together people who share the both interest. Basically, Manila X Festival is an opportunity to showcase what most of us love - the finer things in life highlighted by enjoying great music while appreciating the wonderful styles conceptualized by our creative stylists!

The media launch was also attended by some of the Manila X Festival featured artists and stylists who all entertained the inquiries of the media and bloggers. Some performed for us to provide entertainment before the panel discussion. I have some portions of the media launch on video so be sure to check out our official Youube channel at soon.

Be part of the revolutionary #‎ManilaX this June 4, 2016 at the Circuit Grounds Makati.

Below is the official press release of the event:

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 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 musical acts perform in the midst of a full-blown fashion showcase. Festival goers are in for a treat: four fashion shows will have models walk the runway in four different fashion themes: grunge, Coachella, sleek and activewear. Each show, scored by live musical acts, will be styled by one of Manila's most sought-after celebrity stylists: Bang Pineda, John Paul Dizon, Myrrh Lao To, and duo Rain Dagala and Em Millan. Hip fashion retail website Zalora will also hold its own fashion show featuring its in-house brands. During this segment, the audience will be encouraged to purchase pieces worn by the models on the spot, entitling the live buyer to exciting discounts.

Now on to the music, Manila X Festival has an exciting line-up of live OPM performers and DJ acts. New boy band The Juans will be taking the stage, as well as real-life couple and songwriter duo Thyro and Yumi. Alternative rock band Kjwan lead by vocalist Marc Abaya will be performing alongside celebrated indie rock band Up Dharma Down. Under hip-hop, award-winning rapper Gloc 9 will definitely keep the audience tongue-tied in excitement. Fashion blogger and versatile singer Kiana Valenciano is a fresh inclusion to the line-up, while pop-rock singer-songwriter Yeng Constantino is sure to perform her hits. Manila's most-followed DJs will also be on rotation. To make sure everyone gets to have even more fun, DJs Badkiss, duo Curse & Bless, Jessica Milner, Tom Taus, Marc Marasigan, Mars Miranda, and Ace Ramos will be spinning the night away.

Sponsored by make-up label BYS and online shopping site, and powered by TaskUs Philippines, the fastest growing startup firm in the country, Manila X Festival is the first of its kind in the Philippines—an event where music and fashion are both front and center. The festival happens on June 04, 2016, Saturday, 7PM at Globe Circuit Event Grounds, Carmona, Makati City.
