Fashion events. They give life to the fashion industry and more inspirations to every ladies and gentlemen around the globe.

Last May 4, 2012, the first ever Candy Style Awards hosted by Candymag was held in Rockwell Tent Makati City. It was one exciting event where celebrities, personalities and fashion bloggers who gave inspirations to every teen  will receive their respected awards.

Journey to Candy Style Awards

Our place was really far from Rockwell Tent but since my friend and I wanted to be really present on this event, we made our choice. We just had to commute our way there. We rode on a UV Express, MRT, and finally on a jeep. It was not my first time going to Rockwell but my last time here was when I attended the 2nd Candy BFF Camp and it was during my third year in highschool. I already forgot how to go here.

So, yes, we got lost. We encountered two girls who were going there too and we had the same misfortune. We decided to go together and find our way to Rockwell Tent. It was fun because we met new friends along the way. And seriously speaking, we were never late though we arrived around 6 pm (the event should have started by 5 pm). If I remembered well, the event started roughly 7 pm.

Event Pass

To enter the event venue, you have to present a passage ticket from Candymag May issue. Too bad that the page behind that pass was Mario Maurer’s interview. I maybe sort of upset because they did not had the time to think about that.

The Venue

Anyway, it was cool. I love the design of the venue because it was really stylish, pink and glamorous. I love the colour combination of the spotlights and the stage.

I was just expecting more booths. The stalls I saw there were mostly photo booths.  But since this was a fashion awards night, I should have foreseen it.

It was just disappointing how they did not use the red carpet outside the Tent. I don’t know if I just missed it or the celebrities and style icons did not really enter through there. I believe it should serve its purpose.

The Candy Style Star Awardees

It was a night to remember because I had the chance to have a picture with my favourite style icon, Ms. Kryz Uy. I definitely won’t forget this because I had two shots with her plus her autograph.
