Once every two years one of the most anticipated and anxiously awaited event occurs. This is the BENCH denim and underwear show! The brain child of one of my people I deeply respect and admire Mr. Ben Chan. Every time he does this show I feel like Christmas came early. This was the show that everyone wants to see and I mean everyone including my mother! LOL!
I was so fortunate to have been invited to the show and I wanted to share with you my experience. Every time this show happens it’s always something bigger, better and more outstanding then the last. This year was even more special as BENCH invited an international crew to do the show. From the moment I walked in the MOA ARENA I was impressed wight the stage. The circular stage would really beneficial to the audience as this would give everyone a better view.
The lighting designer was also flown in from the US and I heard that he is the same one who does the lighting design for the American Idol show! The performers also were flown in all the way from Canada and this really added a different dimension to the entire production.
I also noticed that the models they had were really a breed apart as BENCH scouted and casted international runway models from all over the world! Making this year’s show feel really global and international. Not to be outdone where the Philippine Models and Endorsers who I could only imagine prepared for several weeks for this show. The many hours of gym training and the dieting really paid off as most of the celebrities really looked ripped and amazing.
I for one had a great time. It was a show that balanced fashion and entertainment on a spectacle that only BENCH can produce. The fact that they moved the date for the following day as the weather was extremely bad shows how compassionate and understanding Mr. Ben Chan is. I just want to personally congratulate BENCH and everyone behind this amazing company. MABUHAY KAYONG LAHAT!
Now take a look at the photos and enjoy!
