 Last Feb 16, MEGA magazine celebrated it's 20th anniversary in the business. 
In keeping with the 20th anniversary of MEGA, the MEGA Young Designers Competition
final six were then tasked to imagine MEGAmorphosis and the next 20 years of MEGA for
their final collections. These were then showcased in a grand gala held at NBC Tent.

I was invited to be part of this wonderful and fashionable event.
I am so glad to meet Wy (for the 2nd time) and Cariz, they're bloggers too.

With an audience that included patrons of fashion, young society and the most important
advertisers of MEGA magazine, there was no better place to launch young talents Mara
Chua, Kirby Cruz, Ched Dalogaog, Robin Gundran, Oz Go and Renan Jay Pacson.

You people should watch the grand finale because the collections of these finalists are amazingly fabulous!
I have to say all are fashion forward and all of them are really deserving to be on Final 6.
Of course I knew who won but I'm not gonna spill it out. :]
