The ZALORA Style Awards being a Southeast Asian event, it also recognizes awardees in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan and Hong Kong. These were judged by experts and renowned personalities in the field.
This year’s panel of judges consisted Pauline Suaco Juan (former Preview Magazine EIC), Amina Aranaz-Alunan (SoFa Design Institute Founder and Executive Director), David Milan (Philippine Star Y Style and Supreme Creative Director), Sarah Santiago (MEGAstyle.ph EIC and MEGA Magazine Managing Director) and the executives of ZALORA Philippines – Gigi Mabanta (Buying Head), Regine King (Marketing Head) and Vince Flores (Public Relations Head).
Fashion Designer of the Year awardee Mark Bumgarner was a former race car driver, did you know? It was through his travels as a racer where he discovered his passion for fashion. The photo above are his designs. Sometimes, it takes a couple of detours to find your way towards your true calling, don’t you think? 😉
