Save the date: March 28, 2015 is the day of the great reveal, when out of the 44 finalists, one male and one female model will emerge the winners at the fashion show cum runway model search entitled “Fashion Evolution” a must-attend event mounted by Metro Blogger, the Philippines’ newest social circle for bloggers around the metro.
Last January, more than one hundred hopefuls filled the go-see venue as excitement started to rise for the show which Metro Blogger will do for the first time as a special Bloggers’ Night Out event. Last year, when Metro Blogger was founded, it came up with Bloggers’ Night Out which was a fun, face-to-face mingling event among bloggers. The organization aims to serve as an avenue for disseminating information on event invites, new products, campaigns and services to a diverse group of members with different interest but share the same passion in blogging.
Present during the Presscon were the sponsors for the event :

“In today’s highly connected world, blogging matters. It has now become a significant source of online buzz with consumer interest in blogs continuing to grow,” Mr. Jess C, Metro Blogger founder said. “Metro Blogger is a special community for bloggers. We help provide connect them with numerous companies that are reaching out for branding purposes, product marketing and more.
