MANILA, Philippines – Forget that designer bag. The accessory of the season is something far cheaper and far, well, stickier. It’s all about stickers this year and for our second annual #YSProm, we commissioned young illustrator Ross Du to make sticker art for our invites.
Of course, we couldn’t resist stickering our faces off. And this week, we pre-game with four of our favorite social media finds.
SM Youth ambassador Tommy Esguerra has been a model for a few years now, his lanky frame and long, shampoo commercial-ready mane making him a favorite of tastemakers and someone to watch out for right from the get-go
Melissa Gatchalian knows something about taste-making. As a graphic designer at the buzzy Sunnies Studios, she’s part of the team that’s #slaying our lives one Instapost and EDSA billboard at a time. In her time off-though, she’s creating buzz for herself as design-savvy fashion blogger Sartorial Panda.
Gil Cuerva is still a student balancing life as a junior in De La Salle University and a thriving career as a fresh face on the modeling scene. He’s just getting started but we bet we’re going to hear a lot about him in the next few years.
Kimi Juan is a photographer who’s managed to build a loyal following based on breathtaking travel photos and a keen eye for beauty. Her next endeavor? Nomadic Goods Co., an online travel goods shop she started with her boyfriend.
