MEGA's 20th Year and its 10th Young Designers Competition

I was invited to the celebration of MEGA Magazine's 20th anniversary. Together with their anniversary was MEGA's Young Designers Competition 2012 finale, held last February 16, 2011 at NBC Tent, The Fort, Taguig.


The MEGA Young Designers Competition was founder by Sari Yap (MEGA's EIC) in 1994.  The objective was to to create and discover new talents.  This year, YDC is presenting 6 talented finalists who will make a name in Philippine fashion.  


It was a well-attended event, with sparkling wine provided by Voga Italia and hors d'oeuvres by Cibo di M were over-flowing.  The event was hosted by the very pretty, supermodel Sara Meier-Albano.  
There's only one winner which was decided by a panel of judges composed of: Sari Yap (MEGA's EIC), Raya Mananquil (model), Avel Bacudio (designer), Suki Salvador (Exec Creative Director) and Meryll Yan (Publisher/Deputy Editor).  


The 6 finalists presented their collection and to the delight of the guests, 2 YDC alumni, last year's winner Russel Villafuerte and one of my favorite designers, Veejay Floresca presented their own runway collection.


All the 6 finalists are talented but of course there is only one winner.  Congratulations to Renan Pacson, champion of the 2012 Young Designers Competition!
