The Bench Body Show For Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2013 Bench Body and their Benchsetters heat up the runway during PHFW.

We've all heard of the famous Bench Body shows throughout the years—Bench Universe, Bench Uncut, Bench UndercoverBench Blackout—name it.

This season, Bench Body decided to bring their Holiday collection to Philippine Fashion Week, and boy, they didn't disappoint! The SMX hall was filled to the brim with celebrities, supermodels (Sebastian Sauve and Tom Barker were there!), friends of the brand, and media.

The show opened with Paolo Roldan’s piercing stare via their LED walls, and just as the tension built up Borgy Manotoc came out to break it, in a pair of army green briefs, no less (and no more, either). He was followed by other Bench Body models like Catriona Gray, Pauline Prieto, Valerie Weigmann, Vince Ferraren, and Sam Ajdani, who were all dressed in various Bench Body apparel. One of the showstoppers was Jennylyn Mercado who walked, with bouncing voluminous curls to boot, in an all-black piece. Other celebrities who heated up the runway were the Semerad twins—Anthony and David—along with the Philippine Volcanoes.

When the man of the hour Paolo Roldan finally stepped out on the runway, the crowd started cheering: The Filipino supermodel, after all, is the new endorser of Bench Body, who also campaigned for international brands like Givenchy. He has also posed butt-naked in Vogue!

Bench Body featured multiple colorways and styles for both their men's and women’s line, all styled with voluminous ovoid pieces designed by none other than Joey Samson.

The show was indeed a treat for fashion lovers and Bench Body supporters alike. We can’t wait for more surprises in the coming seasons of Philippine Fashion Week!
