Modeling in the Philippines

As I noticed in the modeling industry today, more and more models with mixed blood are introduced and less full-blooded Filipinos are given the opportunity. Let say with runway, TV, and print ads, most models are usually foreigner, if not of Brazilian decent, then American, British, etc.

Bench models working the runway at Teatrino in Greenhills yesterday.

I am not saying that I hate the foreign invasion since that's already a part of the culture even before I was born. And in fact, they are beautiful people. We have their influence everywhere. I only want to see more full-blooded to be given equal chance to shine so we can have more Charo Ronquillo and Charlene Almarvez to be proud of.

So ladies.. What do you think of mixed versus full-blooded models? Do you have a favorite Filipino model? Have your say.

  1. i share your sentiment, most models i see on print ads and tvs were caucasian (or mestiza) even on international runways we don't get to see asian mannequins, buti pa nga africans,madaming nagsa-succeed.

  2. I like the morena models... I'm not sure if they're mixed blooded :) (parang muggle versus the pure blooded heheh!) I like Megan Young and Alessandra de Rossi pag nag mo-model.. pero si Alex, muggle kasi siya eh :)

  6. Could it be possible that Philippine Fashion Week would cast a runway model whose height is at 5'4" given that she is completely skinny and proportion, exceptional in that case? They normally cast models at 5'7 and what happens is that most foreigners get to bag the job and Filipina's who rarely grow up to 5'6, are being sent home. Nakakainis noh?!
