Love. Hope. Happiness.
This issue ends the year and starts another on a positive note with actress and social media superstar Anne Curtis. Despite the challenging year that was, this issue would like to bathe you with warmth and love—a kaleidoscope of happy vibes. Anne is the perfect muse for fun and fashion, feminism and Filipinas, and more importantly, she helps us remember to celebrate all that is still right with the world. “We are all the same. We are all human beings who deserve a chance and equal opportunities in life. May it be for work, life, or love we should all be given equal rights," says Anne.
In line with spreading love and equality, this month highlights authenticity and being real amidst of all the negativities happening around the world. Let fashion help you express your true self, and be inspired by the collections from the Red Charity Gala, Philippine Fashion Ball, Manila Fashion Festival, and Kate Spade Spring/Summer 2017.
This issue also paid homage to the artistry of this year’s Metrowear Icon, Wynn Wynn Ong. Re-live the exquisite night of Wynn Wynn’s first-ever runway show: As a mentor, a collaborator, and an artist.
With the holidays just around the corner, level up your party organizing and gift-buying skills with Metro’s last-minute gift guide and the annual Blackbook, which features your holiday party essentials.
This issue is dedicated to you, to every individual out there that longs to break free from hate, and just celebrate. “It is my personal hope that this lends perspective to the inclusiveness of our patience and love, and that the rainbow on our cover represents the nuances and hues of all that has come into existence from and since then. But ultimately, should there only be one takeaway from this magazine this month, let it be that when speaking of joy, we promise to allow it room for its natural contagion,” says editor-in-chief Sarah Meier.
