I had so many photos of this show, which is rare. I barely remember to take photos whenever I’m backstage or working. And in this instance, I even watched its entirety! Usually I’d be so tired or busy backstage and I’ve watched the rehearsals anyway, so I don’t bother anymore (I tried to get glimpses when we were doing Bench Universe and the Leslie Mobo shows, though).
So a quick background, in case you don’t know who Furne One is or you’re wondering why they launched a fashion show to announce the fragrance. Furne One is a Filipino designer based in Dubai who owns Amato Couture. He’s known for his dramatic, elaborate and very extravagant designs, as Dubai designers are quite famous for. He’s been featured numerous times on America’s Next Top Model and celebrities from J.Lo, Heidi Klum, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Amber Rose and Nicole Scherzinger have worn his designs.

Anyway, here’s another photo post for you all! While Part 1 had backstage photos, Part 2 features photos taken during the actual show. Marina Benipayo had an awesome solo performance and Raina Hein came out for the finale. Sorry I wasn’t able to fix the white balance of the previous photos. I knowww I’ve had my 30D for years but I’m still struggling with low lighting, plus, its flash sucks.
Directed by Ariel Lozada (Not Enough Circuses), held at The Peninsula Manila.
