It's a star-studded week for Penshoppe as they bring in two Hollywood celebrities for their newest campaign. After Mr. Smolderhalder's, Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder, visit Leighton Meester, also known as Blair Waldorf in the hit TV Series, Gossip Girl, made an appearance on the runway of Penshoppe at Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2012.
The Impact fashion show of Penshoppe was very well attended, in anticipation of pretty actress and of course, for the brand's new array of clothing for the season. They covered every trend with their newest line: from brights, denim, pastel to even the classic black in a wide variety of treatment and silhouettes.
As the fashion show ended, Alex Mendoza, brand manager of Penshoppe, talked about how big 2012 is for Penshoppe--from their design direction evolving from basics to more trend-driven styles, to the growing roster Hollywood endorsers--ending his speech with, "We have a big surprise for you!"
Leighton, whom we fondly call Queen B, walked onto the runway (clad in an outfit designed by Robin Tomas for Penshoppe) with none other than Thai-cutie and fellow Penshoppe All-Stars member, Mario Maurer. The crowd went nuts, to say the least! She thanked everyone with a sweet smile and Mario also welcomed her to the Penshoppe family. It was surreal!
Our TwitPics were retweeted multiple times all throughout the night and one of those people who retweeted was no other than Mario himself. How sweet!
Mario even retweeted one from my personal account, I was beyond kilig!
As we said before, exciting things are up ahead and we can't wait for what Penshoppe will come up with next!
