Cover to cover

To say that the fashion "industry" in the Philippines is small, would be the biggest understatement in the world. The industry is so small that being a hyphenate (you know..slash model, slash gigolo, slash social climber) is actually a necessity. You have fashion stylists and models who also moonlight as writers and artistas (wannabe actors)..or you can also make up your own job title just to sound legitimate. Oh to live in the third world! Where else is getting an endorsement deal, or having a billboard with your face blown up 20X, equal to receiving a pulitzer prize? Only in Manila, I say (let's include this in your list, French Muse!).

So, just to give you an idea what's going on here fashion wise, let me just post pics of local magazine covers. Let me know what YOU think. What do these covers say exactly?

Oh! and you will see some of these models/celebs, whatever..recycled every couple of months. Yeah, it's THAT small.

what I think Ms.Florentine(hehehehe)?

If I started thinking, my brain would internally combust in protest.

Now if I just blank out and stare, words like "rehash, no-brainers, and cut-rate" will flash.
