Preview editor-in-chief Pauline Juan, who handpicked Pastrana, talked about how the artists drew from different themes related to the magazine.

“Fashion editorials, for example. What are they, how are they conceptualized, and how have they changed over the course of 20 years? The answer, in these artists’ hands, is free for interpretation,” she said.
The best part? Preview's 20th anniversary exhibit is open for public viewing on June 27-28 from 10:00am-6:00pm at The Axon of Green Sun, 2285 Chino Roces Avenue Extension, Makati.
