A source from Hong Kong told us that the Conde Nast title, which debuts in spring 2019, has named its top editor---and it's not a Hong Kong local or someone from China, as widely speculated.

Some people never give up, and in this case, we mean Ben Chan and Gino Gonzales. The Ternocon at Cultural Center of the Philippines went one step further in promoting the national dress as relevant wear for today's Filipino women.

Gonzales went to the provinces to mentor the participants, and in Metro Manila, he was joined by seasoned designers JC Buendia, Len Cabili and Inno Sotto in giving the workshops. &...Keep on reading: Today’s women will wear the terno if…
The globalization of fashion has resulted in blandness and uniformity, leaving the Filipiniana, especially the butterfly-sleeved terno, confined to special occasions. This could be why Bench and the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) mounted Ternocon (terno convention and contest)---to rekindle the public's appreciation of the terno not just as an expression of patriotism, but also its wearability. Held at CCP, Ternocon aimed to inspire designers to make the costume more relevant today, to give women design options so that the terno wouldn't be limited to Filipino-themed events. Although Ternocon's dress code was the balintawak, ...Keep on reading: Their take on the ‘terno’
A few months ago, Facebook friends tagged me to a link on a video from a page named Ampalaya Monologues. The video featured a guy named Mark Ghosn doing what seemed like stand-up comedy. He had the audience laughing out loud over a five-minute sketch called «Trolling in the Deep.» Ghosn acted out a scene like he was talking to the mother of his girlfriend. Here are excerpts: «Tita, minahal ko po ang anak niyo... mahal ko pa rin naman po... Kaya lang hindi na po talaga puwede e.... »N'ung sumama po ako sa Luneta para mag-rally kasi may binaon silang magnanakaw sa Libingan ng mga Bayani... Hihiwalayan niya raw ako kasi ayaw niya ng boypr...Keep on reading: ‘Trolling in the deep’ with Mark Ghosn

Après avoir rendu sa décision N°219/CC du 14 novembre 2018, la Cour constitutionnelle a soulevé une vague d'indignation de la part d'une partie de la classe politique, de la société civile, des citoyens ordinaires et surtout des juristes. Ces désaccords avec cette décision relève, à notre avis, de la la jonglerie de la gardienne des lois sur les conditions de détermination d'une vacance de la présidence de la République.
