Fierce Comes to Life at the Ipanema Urban Jungle Fashion Show


The fiercest animals breathed the urban life as the world-renowned Brazilian flip-flop brand Ipanema brought  the mystical wonders of the jungle to the city in the spectacular Ipanema Urban Jungle Fashion show held at the Abreeza Mall Activity Center last October 12, 2012.

This runway show-cum-fashion festival was staged in an urban jungle setting to launch Ipanema's latest collection of flip-flops. In this fashion show, the plain and simple Abreeza Mall's Activity Center was transformed into an urban jungle coupled with flashing lights and festive music that makes you feel like you were being transported to the beaches and jungles of Brazil.

Thankfully, I was privileged to be invited to this event. Despite having a long and very tiring day, I made it a point not to miss this one because from the teaser Ipanema showed us, I knew right then that this fashion show is a one-of-a-kind experience. Indeed, it is truly an unforgettable one.

Ipanema raised the bar higher with this fashion show. To say, it was not just a simple and boring runway show. Every piece of the latest collection was showcased by models/dancers who portrayed the fierce fauna of the jungle very well plus the storyline gave justice to these creatures. From the amazing storyline,  extraordinary costumes and avant garde make-up  to the spectacular choreography,  I was simply amused with every inch of creativity that I saw the entire time that I was witnessing a mystical story unfold before me.

This spectacular event made me raise my thumbs up for an extraordinary fashion experience. Not only did this fashion show exuded an animalistic vibe to all the spectators but it also unleashed the fashion animal within every stylistic Davaoeños with the latest Ipanema collection presenting a mix of bright colors, vibrant patterns and bold prints perfect for the fierce soles.

Luckily, I was fortunate to bring home these new pairs from Ipanema plus loads of goodies. Having new pairs makes me more excited to conquer the last frontier, Palawan, by the end of the month.

Thanks a lot Ipanema!
