As Metro celebrates its 27th year, they pay homage to all the super women from different walks of life. Empowering and inspiring, this issue is their ode to feminism.
Welcome, to Metro’s 2016 Anniversary Issue.
Fronting this month’s issue is Arci Munoz – standing tall, proud, and ready to take on the world. Get to know more of the real Arci, as she talks about her dreams, the men in her life, and how she dares to make an impact when it matters the most.
Break the rules and put the spotlight on yourself. Metro features the biggest trends this season, as seen on the runways. Be in command and be the new romantic. Forget squads, call an army and be the new brave in Spring/Summer’s romantic, military, and print-on-print trends.
Be inspired with the success stories of the featured lady bosses in business and creative realms of fashion. From Kate Spade’s Deborah Lloyd, the women behind the legacy of bag and accessories brand S.C. Vizcarra, to the female leaders running for the higher office in the national elections – Metro urges you to make your voice count and to make the right choice now.
This issue, Metro also sought to break gender norms through the powerful images in their fashion editorials as well as a first-hand narration on what it is to be a Filipina feminist.
Metro’s journey ran alongside that of the fashion industry, starting out as a lifestyle magazine before revamping to fashion and lifestyle. Metro’s Editor-In-Chief Sarah Meier explains how special this issue is. “May we heed the call that the month demands. Let us celebrate Mother’s Day by truly allowing the magnitude of the gift of birthing to sink in, and recognize that nurturing lies at the core of our being. May we celebrate elections that hole the possibility of a third female president for our nation, if not only for the mere fact that this option means we live in a country that does not deem women unworthy of greatness. May we celebrate and firmly defend the rights we have, and be vocal about the ones we deserve. And may we find comfort and empowerment in the freedom of having femininity as ours to define.”
Check out all these and more in the Metro May 2016 issue, now out in major bookstores. Metro is available in bookstores and on newsstands for P150.
