Not everyone can get into international fashion events easily. One has to have a recognized name, which is synonymous to an established reputation and a well-placed network. Moreover, one needs to know who’s who among the guests so as not to appear like a snob or ignorant of the people in the show or in the after-event parties.

If one thinks that a ticket to get into the show is hard, it’s the location of the seat for a show that really spells out if one is made. Sitting in the front row means one is privileged or has the money to pay for such prized tickets. Benefactors do get to be seated in such prime places. Thus, not just anyone can sit on that row. Well, Seat Grabber (SG) tried to pull a fast one in a prestigious fashion event abroad.

SG probably arrived early to the event and scanned the best view for the show that was going to happen in a few minutes. Then, SG decided to take her seat to have a good vantage point. After a few minutes, Fashion Influencer (FI) came over and seemed to be looking at the seat where SG sat and checked out her pass. Politely, FI told SG that she was in her seat.

As the event is not her territory and if she makes a scene, her local and international reputation would be ruined, SG gave in to FI without much fuss. Then, as she moved seats, SG called out to FI and said that they know each other. The reaction of FI was priceless, as she could not at recall where she met SG. Overheard, SG said she and FI bonded over dinner with a friend. FI smiled back, but she could not really put a name to the face.

When SG moved down, FI called her attention to tell her that A Celebrity (AC) would be seated there officially. SG moved further down. Allegedly, SG did not really have a slot in the prime seat location, as she kept moving to the end part of the row. Then, SG started talking to AC, who seemed to be unaware of what game SG was playing. Soon, FI was glancing to the direction of AC, hoping that she would stop talking to someone who seems to be trying to be part of the select group bestowed with the best seats in the house.

    1. The day will come when L will be finally called out by international media/bloggers/outlet or whatever for her social climbing ways.

      Kung maka-aura sa account niya, akala mo sinong big deal sa mga events. Saling-pusa lang naman pala.

    2. Basher ka lang ni H. Ala ka lang common sense. So si AC magfriends sila ni FI? At sa tingin mo mas kilala si K kesa ke H? Duh... rolling eyes to your kind of thinking and analyzation. Harharhar

    3. You sure? Afaik H is legit rubbing elbows with some of fashion industry's big names. Remember H was born with a silver spoon. Kahit bata pa lang yan for sure di na niya kelangan magfeeling sa mga fashion events na pinupuntahan niya.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sorry, isang L lang alam ko? Kasi diba si L industriya niya naman yan so why no invite? Unless other L?

    ReplyDelete
  26. So far may international fashion show na nakita ko, L K at H ang nandun. I think hindi si H, pinuri pa nga sya, I think hindi si K, mukhang hindi nya personality, So mas malamang si L.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Susko seat.grabber pa pala. Eeeww to the highest L

    ReplyDelete
  28. Haha oh my gosh!! Si L nga ito! Nakakahiya!! d pala legit hahaha.. hopping from one seat to another habang wala pa c real seat owner and panay kuha ng pics para ipakita na she got the best seat in the house!! How pathetic!!

    1. I don’t understand bakit siya sumikat. Hindi ako nagagalingan sa kanya. I find her styles bordering on being gaudy.

  31. You noticed she only goes to minor designers. Probably not by choice.

    ReplyDelete
