Liza posted a photo of her with Mugler Creative Director, Casey Cadwallader.
NEW YORK: At the global launch of the H&M and Mugler collaboration here, the Philippines was represented by model and actress Liza Soberano. Donning pieces from the collection at the event held at the Park Avenue Armory, she was one of several global influencers and celebrities invited to the exclusive event to celebrate the latest tie-up between the Swedish fashion retail brand and the renowned fashion house founded by the late Thierry Manfred Mugler.
A day after the event, Soberano is strutting the streets of Manhattan in a special photo shoot for the collection. On the corner of Fifth Avenue and West 52nd street, Soberano poses expertly for the photographer, who captures her image against the towering skyscrapers of the city. Besides the H&M rep and her own companion from her management company Careless Music, only Esquire Philippines is there to witness the moment.
“Oh, I love New York,” she tells us during a quick break from the shoot. “I don’t think I could ever live here, but I feel like this is the pinnacle of what a city is—like the hustle and bustle of trying to make or build a career for yourself and just grinding and working day in and day out. I like that, but I need an escape from that at times, too. It’s such a wonderful city to visit from time to time and there’s like so much to do. Everything feels busy all the time. Everybody’s doing something. And it’s just a fun place to be.
…..And now she’s here in New York, collaborating with one of the world’s biggest fashion retailers.
“I was really excited about it,” she says. “I really very much wanted to do it. For one, going to New York to do something in fashion is something that I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve always wanted to go to New York Fashion Week. And I feel like this was kind of a stepping stone into that world.”
Sobrano, who has graced the covers and done countless photo shoots for many different media platforms and brands, says she has yet to fully explore the world of fashion.
“I’ve done a bit of it here and there in Manila, like for magazines and some of the big fashion brands, but I’ve never been associated or connected with any fashion power,” she says. “And so I found (this) to be the perfect opportunity to kind of launch that part of my career. And I’m really happy that it’s with H&M because it’s a brand that a lot of people all around the world, and very much so in the Philippines, love and support.(READ FULL ARTICLE: ESQUIRE PH)
