After their successful WAGW CDO Style Ambassadors 2012 launch, What A Girl Wants then invited me to their Davao City launch (see the WAGW Davao invitation here). Good thing the date fell on a weekend when I was set to be home in Davao! Unfortunately, my friends and I came in terribly late so we missed the main program. However, we did make it up to the lovely folks behind WAGW by doing a little shopping that day 🙂
The What A Girl Wants Young Ambassadors of Style for Davao 2012 campaign is an annual selection of Davao City’s fresh new faces and stunning style setters, individuals who epitomize the brand’s image of style, substance and youthful exuberance. WAGW Davao chose 3 young fashionistas – all fitting to be called Style Ambassadors of WAGW – eco-advocate Lorenzo Rabat, fashionable future doctor Milen Aquino and preppy aspiring dentist Ccia Ang.
Marianne Louise Aquino, or Milen, is a 20 year-old BS Biology major who just recently graduated from De La Salle University. Milen, who aspires to become a successful doctor someday, is a classic beauty which translates to her style – simple yet sophisticated. It’s no surprise that her style icon is Audrey Hepburn, whose delicate features are much like Milen’s. In her down time, she likes to do pilates, travel, dance and read.
Chelsea Marie Ang, or Ccia as her friends and family like to call her, is a 20 year-old Dentistry student of Davao Medical School Foundation. She dreams of putting up her own orthodontic practice as soon as she finishes medical school. Ccia’s style is simple and elegant. When she isn’t too busy with school, Ccia enjoys spending time in the kitchen, cooking and baking up a storm. She also likes to cuddle up with a good book.
Lorenzo Leon Rabat, or Enzo for short, is a 21 year-old Civil Engineering Student at the De La Salle University. Enzo dreams of making the world a better place by promoting sustainable development. This sports enthusiast wants to focus on green-building methods and technology to help preserve the Earth’s natural resources and contribute to the fight against global warming. Enzo, who loves going to the beach and mountains, enjoys playing basketball and going to the gym.
Popular fashion blogger Kryz Uy, who also happens to be WAGW’s creative director, says that the “collection brings about feelings of luxury and elegance juxtaposed with rawness and distressed modernity, making use of stunning brocades against laser cut leather, metallic spikes on elegant satin, heavy embellishments on figure skating spandex, giving the wearer a sense of refinement, excessiveness and class with today’s edge and sense of self-power.”
Congratulations to WAGW Davao, to the Uy family, to Milen, Enzo and Ccia!
You can find WAGW shops in SM City Cebu, Ayala Center Cebu, SM Consolacion, LimKetKai Mall CDO, Centrio Mall CDO, Abreeza Mall Davao and inside The Ramp Crossings in Trinoma, Shang, Glorietta.
