Paris Glamour: Season 5

The fashion designers with their models

Paris Glamour, a Paris-based event and series of fashions shows, now on its 5th Season, moved to the city of Lucena in Quezon, hometown of founder Roderick “Hikboy” Ranillo, a top Filipino photographer and events organizer.  

Hikboy had a vision of reaching out to Filipino-French youth through workshops and personality development seminars, thus inspiring them to try their hand a modeling and improve their character.  

Since its beginning in 2012 with 16 models, Paris Glamour has been very successful in Europe and has, within two years, expanded its community of Paris-trained Filipino-French models to over a hundred. 
The event, which happened on the evening of April 5, 2014, Saturday, at the Le Jardin de Fleur, featured 25 models  out of the 100 who auditioned from Quezon and nearby provinces of the region.  Their ages ranged from 17 to 25 years and all (except for one from Laguna) are natives of Quezon.
