    A night well spent, I was invited to attend Bantay Bata 163 X Rocky Gathercole Gala fashion show and dinner. Of course, I couldn't contain my excitement, Rocky has been the avant garde designer to top Hollywood celebs like Britney Spears, Mel B, Nikki Minaj, JLo -- seriously, the list is endless. 


    He also has been one of my biggest supporters, dressing me up for numerous events including my FHM 100 Sexiest Woman in the Philippines. My closest fashion designer friend. 


    Not only that, having witness his fashion show in New York I know the audience is always in for a surprise. So, I was delighted to attend. 


    My show for lifestyle network also got to cover the spectacular event, when I informed Tito Rocky he jumped once again to dress me for my TV show even though he was sick and initially thought he wouldn't make it for his big night. He chose this beautiful red rose gown for me to wear, it embodied the elegance of the night and really made me feel like a Queen.


    This was Rocky's first fashion show here in Manila and, thankfully, he was able to be discharged from hospital to attend his fashion show. 


    For those that don't know, he also had a hard life living on the streets throughout his childhood. His life story was covered by ABS-CBN's MMK. So, it only made more sense for him to always want to help and do charity work. 


    The night was entertaining with beautiful designs, detailed gowns, interesting concepts, light shows and the final touch Bea and Ian from "A Love To Last" wearing his wedding collection.  


    There is nothing like a fashion show for a cause with a designer who has a heart. Someone to stand by and support his goodwill and compassion for others. Thank you Tito Rocky for all the love and support and congratulations on the success of your first ever fashion show her in Manila.
