In the vibrant world of fashion and culture, the launch of Alegre De Pilipinas Magazine marks a significant milestone in showcasing Filipino talent on a global stage. Under the visionary leadership of Editor-in-Chief Chris Daymon, a two-time winner of the Fashion Influencer of the Year award in 2022 and 2023, the magazine is set to captivate audiences with its unique blend of Filipino heritage, creativity, and modern flair.

Chris Daymon’s ethos revolves around the celebration of Filipino culture, heritage, and talent, emphasizing the importance of representing these elements internationally. The magazine aims to be a beacon of pride, showcasing the rich tapestry of Filipino stories, perspectives, and artistic expressions. This initiative is not just about fashion; it’s a platform for inclusive representation, ensuring that diverse voices from various backgrounds are heard, fostering a community that takes pride in its cultural identity.

At the helm, alongside Daymon, are two pivotal figures: Angelo Estera, the renowned Filipino Couture Designer serving as the Editor at Large, and Janice Israel DeLima-Tentler, the CEO of Alegre De Pilipinas. Their combined expertise and vision are shaping the magazine to be a repository of not just fashion but also the values of professionalism, confidence, kindness, and humility. They believe in the power of a model who embodies elegance and class, characteristics that are vividly portrayed in their maiden issue.

The debut cover features a model who has graced runways from New York to Dubai to the Philippines, embodying the magazine’s core ethos of blending tradition with contemporary trends. The featured fashion is a testament to the dynamic nature of tribal attire, reimagined to suit modern tastes while staying true to its roots. This fusion of elements is the work of Team Philippines, including talents like photographer Ahleks Fusilero, stylist Omar Sali, and a host of other creatives who bring this vision to life.

Highlighting the magazine is Filipina Supermodel Wilma Doesnt, whose multifaceted career spans acting, TV hosting, comedy, and entrepreneurship. Her journey is a testament to hard work and perseverance, qualities that have cemented her status in the industry. Following in her footsteps is her daughter, Asiana Doesnt, who is quickly becoming a fashion icon in her own right, embodying the grace and beauty inherited from her mother.

The magazine also celebrates the avant-garde spirit of Filipino designers from Iloilo, known for their unconventional and bold approaches to fashion. Their creations, which range from reinterpretations of historic tribal clothing to innovative accessory designs, reflect a fearless attitude towards creativity. Designers like Ericka Celiz and Herwin Cardoza draw inspiration from intriguing sources such as the deadly allure of Belladonna and the primal essence of human existence, infusing their work with deep symbolism and innovative aesthetics.

Ericka Celiz’s accessories, inspired by the Belladonna plant, and Herwin Cardoza’s “Être” tribal dress, highlight the magazine’s commitment to pushing boundaries and exploring the intersections of fashion, history, and humanity. These pieces not only showcase the designers’ ingenuity but also echo the magazine’s overarching theme of celebrating the multifaceted beauty of Filipino culture.

Alegre De Pilipinas Magazine is more than a publication; it’s a movement dedicated to illuminating the brilliance of Filipino artistry to the world. Its maiden issue is a bold declaration of the country’s rich cultural heritage, its enduring spirit, and its boundless potential to inspire and influence the global tapestry of fashion and culture. Through its pages, readers are invited to embark on a journey of discovery, appreciation, and pride in the profound creativity and vibrant heritage of the Filipino people.
