Events stylist and accessories maven Jun Jun Ablaza celebrated his birthday with a fashion extravaganza in epic proportions.
JunJun is known for his annual Ablazablaze exhibit that coincides with his birthday. After five years of celebrating at the Manila Polo Club, he decided to hold the annual fete at Amelia, his family’s estate in Alfonso Cavite. Veering away from his usual opulent themed celebrations, Jun jun decided to mount a fashion runway show in collaboration with fashion designers Steve de Leon and his best friend Michelle Sison together with fashion stylist Roko Arceo to elevate denim street wear into artistic ensembles that articulates Jun Jun’s passion for the extraordinary, highlighting his artistic explorations across the globe.
The fashion show featured four segments – the Asian, American, African, and European continents. Kicking off the show was a Filipino tribal ensemble of weaved fabrics sewn into denim. Leather, feathers, opulent jewelry, thai silk and trinkets were infused into denim that created a fashion phantasmagoria that brought everyone into Jun Jun’s world of wonders.
