The Reluctant Stylista

We’ve been working backstage for the past couple of months on several fashion shows, but this was one of the few times I brought a camera.  Anyway, Bench collaborated with designer Furne One to launch its newest fragrance, Unholy. And of course, in grand Bench fashion, it had to be launched with a show featuring the latest from Furne’s Amato Haute Couture.  Dark, fantastical and put together with just the right amount of theatrics, it was held at the Rigodon Ballroom of The Peninsula Manila.  You’ll know it’s Furne One because of its highly stylized and dramatic pieces.  Raina Hein of ANTM was even chosen as the face of this new perfume.  Here are some photos behind the scenes:

Furne is also known for his fiery mane, possibly the inspiration for the terrifying red wigs included in the show
