Best known for its form-flattering denims, Levi’s has found a way to make you even more comfortable in your jeans. The brand held a pop-up customization shop last weekend at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium where I was luckily invited to!
TRIVIA: The Levi’s 501 Original Fit Jeans started it all for the brand. They are dubbed as ‘the original button fly jean.’ Kung ganoon, I dub myself ‘the original unbuttoned fly girl’ as exhibited in the photo below (huwag ka nang kumontra).
I was invited to the event last Sunday together with model & entrepreneur (& my besh Janna Tee‘s boyfriend hehe) Brent Javier
He was already distressing his jeans when I got there. That’s not the only thing you can do when you visit the customization shop — look at all the options you can choose in customizing your Levi’s!
A minimum single receipt purchase of Php 3,000 is needed to participate in the customization shop and you don’t necessarily have to customize the stuff you just bought. You can also bring your trusted old pair of Levi’s that you want to makeover!
You know I personally don’t wear a lot of jeans so I was initially thinking of converting pants into shorts. But I took my time to look around before deciding. I got distracted by the delicious cheese/caramel popcorn they were serving. I’m crossing my fingers they have it again at the next one cos I will be there!
Seryoso, guys, ang sarap. (commercial: how do I install emojis into blog posts?? Gusto ko mag-insert ng umiiyak-sa-sarap na emoji)
Look at these guys working so hard! Galing
Samples for the screensilk prints
And then I spotted the trucker jackets. Unfortunately, they only had the ones for men so I asked for an extra small. I need it in my life.
My college friend and fellow Dollhouser Janlee was in charge of the event’s PR. Hey, girl!! Sana di kita na-stress sa pagpilit ko ng men’s jacket hehe (and hello kuya photobomber)
Talking to a denim expert about altering my jacket and personalizing it a bit more!
I wanted MAGALONA to be on top of the front pocket so it would resemble a military uniform name tape, but the maximum number of letters that would fit was 5.
So okay, sabi ko I’ll just make a CHEATS jacket because, wala lang, gusto ko lang ng band jacket, bakit!?!
Still missing an S
And then I had it splattered with a bit of paint. I had it altered but couldn’t wait for it na so I asked my friends take it home for me. Will get it later!!:D Thanks ate Mikki for taking care of it! Visit her beauty blog at www.breakmyspell.com!
Here I am nagfi-feeling modista
Thank you so much for the invite, CASTRO P.R. and the marketing manager of Levi’s, Kaths Laudit!
Make denim your second skin: Live in Levi’s! There will be another Customization shop this December 12-14 at SM Megamall Mega Fashion Hall. Our band Cheats will play on the 12th at 5PM so I hope you guys can drop by! See you there!!
