Preview Magazine produced one of their biggest fashion editorials this year, which appears in this month's issue! Flip to the fashion editorials and you'll find the film noir spread MLA CONFIDENTIAL starring none other than Georgina Wilson and Mon Tulfo.
Vince Uy, Preview's Creative Director, revealed that he's been thinking of this theme for quite some time now. He wanted something inspired by old films, particularly the stylized investigative drama "L.A. Confidential." They tapped Dindo Pangalangan, Elmer Pueblo, and Che Katigbak to recreate a private detective's office back in the '50s. The details were spectacular!
Georgina Wilson played the fashionable secretary, dressed in this season's jewel tones. As for the role of the detective, Anna Canlas, Preview's fashion assistant, searched high and low for Mr. Mon Tulfo, the man behind the radio show, Isumbong Mo Kay Tulfo. They could think of no better person for the role. And with Mark Nicdao booked to do the shoot, everything was all set!
Mon arrived on set with his daughter who was all too excited for her father's shoot. He described it as something new compared to the TV and movie appearances he'd done in the past. "This focuses on your expression," he says, instead of the usual focus on acting. He even mentioned that this editorial made him feel young again!
