Bryanboy Through the Lens of’s Greg Kessler

It’s been a crazy two weeks! I’m in turbo-blogging mode so let me start with the ‘easy’ entries and allow me to indulge in a quick round of shameless and blatant self-promotion before I continue with fashion, fashion, FASHION! I found these photos of me on and (Conde Nast Italy) that were taken by’s backstage and front-row head honcho, the handsome (and petite, like me) Greg Kessler.

At Anna Sui where I got a last-minute seating upgrade from 4th row to 2nd row (yay!). Ahhhhh the now-famous faux feather Zara coat which I got
back in Manila for $45 on sale (down from $250). I love living in Manila
where it’s hot and humid because nobody buys the coats come sale time
hahaha! Anyway, when I arrived in JFK, at least 10 people at the airport
stopped me, asking where my coat was from. In front of Macy’s, some
really old man touched my coat… I thought I was gonna get attacked by
an animal rights protester, lo and behold all he wanted to know is what
my coat is made from. Even the Daily Telegraph’s (UK) Hilary Alexander
told me it’s a fabulous piece. Lots of people praised me….
unbelievable! I’ve never received so many compliments based on a single
piece of garment alone. Amazing.

At BCBG Max Azria, I sat beside the super-friendly Michelle Williams. It’s my first show of the week.

The lovely folks over at British Elle tweeted they liked my outfit. Yeehaw! Necklace from Filipino jewelry designer Ciara Serumgard (Hamish Bowles also told me he loved my necklace… and I bought the oversized, size XL cardigan from Uniqlo that morning.

At Proenza Schouler (one of my favourite collections this season), I took off my Zara coat because it was soo hot. Sequined top by Gryphon with a navy cashmere sweater by Uniqlo underneath.

At 3.1 Phillip Lim, the amazing Rachna came to my rescue and plonked me down a free seat on the 2nd row behind Suzy Menkes, Cathy Horyn and the folks from the New York Times. I was originally assigned a 7th row seat. I’ll share you my thoughts about Phillip Lim’s new womenswear collection in a bit. That show got me all intrigued. 

Rachel Zoe’s associate, the very handsome and stunning Brad Goreski (who I danced with at the Marc Jacobs after party at The Standard Hotel), briefly popped by and said hi. I forgot to ask him his secret to looking young!

BTW, the generous folks over at Mulberry sent me the new Alexa bag…. check out the
gorgeous, eye-popping colour. I love it. Thank you so much, Mulberry for the kind gesture.
