Fantasy VS Reality (ABLAZABLAZE 2013)

10:02 PM


The moment I entered the hallway of the main lounge. I felt like i was transformed into a different world. A world where there are unicorns, magic and fairies. It was all enchanting. . . Then i realized, I'm still human and this is reality so looked around and saw the mirrors and disco balls shinning and sparkling. then i told myself welcome to AblazAblaze 2013!!

AblazAblaze 2013 happened last October 24, 2013 at the Main Lounge, Marco Polo Club, Mckinley road, Forbes Park, Makati City.

In Retrospect you could see here the past theme that AblazAblaze had: Myths and Legends 2011


AblazAblaze is the annual exhibit of artcessoeies, tablescapes, interior designs, and floral arrangements made by Luis Romero Abalaza III also known as Jun Jun Abalaza. 
Thirty teams collaborated  to create their own unique master piece. Each teams composed of a photographer, stylist, models, hair stylist and make up artist. 
This years theme entitled: AblazAblaze 2013 Me, Myself, and I with YOU (Yearnings, Obsessions, and Unions) Featuring all Jun Jun Ablaza's Ablaze Artwear, Accessories, Pets, Wardrobe, Personal collection,Interest, Paraphernalia, and The Ablaza Residence.

You'll see here the interior design and 8x5 ft size printed photographs.

 All the portrait photos was placed in the center part of the lounge.
 While the photos in landscape form are placed around the whole lounge.
look at those stunning light effects they simply added an elegant ambiance.

This is the hall where you could checkout all the Artwear and Accesorries. There was a three fold mirror in the middle where you could write your greetings for Jun Jun Ablaza.

This years ground for action is about Jun Jun Ablaza's Declaration, Affirmation and Reflection of his whole being. His Yearnings, obsessions, Unions are creatively conveyed. 

You'll see here the Artwears and Accessories used in the shoots.
The Artwears that welcomes you in the registration area. Beautiful!
 Notice the face of the manikin. You'll see an illusion of you wearing this Guardian Angel Artwear.








 All the beads and colors compliments each other perfectly. 

I would like to fully express my gratitude to my Mentor Mr. Dennis Guiriba. Who made an exquisite photograph and creative expression in this year's AblazAblaze. Congratulations!
