There are many Asian models at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week! We are loving it. Here is one of hottest models and poised to become the next Asian supermodel, Charlene Almavrez.
In 2009, Charlene was Ford Models’ Supermodel of the World Philippines ultimately winning Super Model of the World 2009 First Runner-up.
We snapped her backstage last night at the Academy of Art fashion show.
How would you compare the modeling scene here in the Philippines and abroad?
Castings are very fast abroad, especially during fashion week and we have 18 castings each day in different locations. In the Philippines, castings take only in one venue. But with regard to presentation and shows and even the clothes, it’s pretty much the same.
Favorite fashion/modeling moment:
When I saw Chanel Iman in person, I thought, “THANK GOD, I AM REALLY HERE!” I thought I would never see the day when I meet the models that I only see in fashion magazines!
