WHO SAYS YOUR PASSION FOR FASHION CAN'T BE USED FOR GOOD? ♥
Last February 12, 2014 In the Skye Lounge atop the W Building in BGC, FASHION has found a purpose.
#MakeYourMove with Modess ♥
FASHION BRANDS WITH A HEARTThere was a mini-bazaar featuring fashion brands that have a social purpose.
Various fashion brands selling clothes, accessories, bags and shoes that carried moving stories of how fashion can make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.
COOKIES PLEASE ♥
STYLE WITH A SOUL ♥
MODESS® The #1 feminine pad in the Philippines launched Julia Barretto as its newest endorser through a fashion soul event called Style with a Soul.
During that time of the month, MODESS is the brand that millions of Filipinas depend on to allow them to keep on moving.
It was hosted by Karen Pamintuan, TV and Events Host.
There is no other girl who best embodies this empowered teen than Julia Barretto.
A beautiful and fun-loving teenager that has proven there is more to teens than just a pretty face. When Typhoon Yolanda struck, Julia quickly organized a successful garage sale, where she donated and sold her own clothes. With the help of her friends and family, she managed to raise a whopping PhP135,000. Not bad for a 16 year-old.
Beyond her quick response to Yolanda, Julia holds another advocacy close to her heart-
Anti-bullying-"Bullying can really ruin your self-esteem and I don't like it when I see girls who lack self-confidence and don't love themselves.
My personal dream is to encourage every Filipina to be confident and proud of who she is so that no amount of bullying can bring her down." says Julia.
SPECIAL GUESTS WHO HAVE MADE THEIR MOVE ♥
MODESS® acknowledges that there just as many advocacies as there are Filipinas, and the brand is fully supportive of each girl acting on what she believes in. This is why MODESS also invited three young and accomplished women to Style with a Soul.
Arriane Serafico, the founder of the blog wanderrgirl.com spoke about her personal advocacy of using creativity and design to spark social change.
Noreen Bautista, the founder of social enterprise Jacinto & Lirio and one of the youngest representatives at the World Economic Forum, spoke about her belief that social enterprises can uplift the impoverished.
Tata Garcia, Ateneo varsity football player turned coach, spoke passionately about sports as a means to improve lives.
This gathering of fashion for a cause and to empowered women will hopefully inspire other Filipinas to make a difference through their own passion areas.
