For those of us who aren’t at New York Fashion Week, we may have missed some important news: Filipina models walking the runways. Among the different shows, presentations, and events, there were a few familiar faces modeling clothes from the latest collections. After some digging, here are the models we spotted so far.
Samantha Gomez walked for Sally LaPointe in a head-to-toe red outfit.
Hye Won Jang also made an appearance at NYFW walking for upcoming fashion duo Jaxon Yang and Nina Cuso.
She also modeled for Rosie Assoulin in a blue ruffled gown.
Pia Wurtzbach walked the runway for Sherri Hill once again, this time in a black gown.
Asia’s Next Top Model cycle one contestant Stephanie Retuya modeled for a few shows. She walked for both Leanne Marshall and Mimi Prober.
Good job, ladies! Watch this space as we look out for more Filipina faces on the runway.
