As an advocate of budget fashion, I want you guys to know that it's not about "what" you're wearing, but how you carry it!
No photographer for that night so pardon crappy outfit photos, haha!

Globe Tattoo made its mark in the social media world, particularly in the Philippines, with its first-ever Globe Tatt Awards. This project is very timely, especially now that the use of social media networks, especially in the country, is in full boom.  Blogs, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube accounts have been playing a major role in the lives of Filipinos today, who devote most of their hours now by using the internet - the mecca of all information (and junk) in this time and age.
 
The social media world, though filled with a bunch of nonsense, is also teeming with talent, creativity and inspiration. And to recognize those individuals at the forefront of Pinoy cyberspace "whose fiery passion for greatness, founded on individuality" has made impact on other netizens, the Tatt Awards is a noble initiative worthy of credit.

Last August 26, the "movers and shakers" of our local online community were awarded according to their own niche. With 10 categories honoring those who have made a remarkable impression on the local social media landscape, the Tatt Awards council searched and has found the best.

The awarding ceremony was held at Manila Peninsula's Rigodon Ballroom, hosted by Tim Yap and fashion icon and socialite, Divine Lee. The event was packed with performances from Youtube sensations Maria Aragon, Arjhon and bands from the local indie music scene. It was well-attended, with a great crowd of press, media personalities, bloggers, citizen journalists, bands and other influential people and the like.

Bloggers United represent! Konti pa lang photos kasi nauna kami!
Required ang close-up ko okay!
Look who we bumped into?! Alodia Gosengfiao! 
 Aside from the awarding of the winners, for me one of the best highlights of the event was Maria Ressa's key note speech. It was moving, touching, informative, intellectual and enlightening. I wish I could make time to create a Beyond Fashion segment on it. I really feel that her message should be passed on to others. That's how powerful I think it is.

 One of my idols (in broadcast journalism), Maria Ressa gave a very inspiring opening remarks. I love her blog!
Cecile Zamora-Van Straten a.k.a Chuvaness.com presented the Stylismo award.
Laureen Uy took home the Stylismo award. 
Mike Bustos won the Best videoblogger award
Leah Salonga won the ballbreaker award for her twitter account. Ms. Ligaya Salonga (her mom) received the award for her.

Here are some fashion bloggers who graced the event!

Ana, Ava and Keigh

Jonard and Nicole (Manila Kids) were also there!
Went there with Aie, bumped into Camille Co and Kryz Uy, and first time to meet Tracy!
There was absolutely no dress code (yehey!). The invite simply said "show your individuality." I'm sooo happy that I don't have to stress over what I'd to wear or be conscious about being out of place. You already had a glimpse of my outfit (above), and here are some of my blogger friends' looks that night.

Look at how sexy their outfits are!
Ana with Divine Lee! She was so nice, promise!
Here's Aisa's outfit and her significant other, Mich! Sweet!
Congratulations to all the winners and to Globe Tattoo for a very successful project! Till next year!
