Penshoppe FanCon 2018 was an incredibly special experience
Fans of Korean superstars, Sandara Park and Nam Joo-Hyuk flocked to the Mall of Asia Arena to attend the massive sold out Penshoppe FanCon last Sunday, July 29.
Filipino fans waved their finger hearts proudly as global fashion retail brand Penshoppe brings not one, but two members of #TeamPenshoppe to the Philippines!
Sandara, who started her career in the Philippines before joining now-disbanded girl group 2NE1, and Nam Joo-Hyuk, best known for his roles in Korean dramas Habaek from Bride of the Water God, Han Yi An of Who Are You School 2015, Jung Joon Hyung of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, Prince Baek Ah of Scarlet Heart Ryeo and Kwon Eun Taek of Cheese in the Trap graced the runway wearing Penshoppe’s pre-holiday collection.
Prior to the event, Sandara Park and Nam Joo Hyuk got the chance to catch up with media as they answered a few questions at a press conference.
PENSHOPPE FANCON featuring Sandara Park and Nam Joo Hyuk featured special musical performances from DJ Tom Taus, Keiko Necesario, IV of Spades and, Club Penshoppe PH (Penshoppe’s local brand ambassadors) – Khalil Ramos, Maris Racal, Ronnie Alonte and Loisa Andalio.
And the fun did not stop there, the show also unveiled Penshoppe’s Pre-Holiday 2018 collection. A playful clash of old meets new, the collection was clearly a fashion led back-to-school range. It gave a sartorial edge that went beyond the books, remixed with sporty statement details – a new take on athletic dressing that is anything but unpolished.
The key pieces from Penshoppe’s Pre-Holiday 2018 collection featured relaxed tailoring in comfortable silhouettes, enhanced by nostalgic, interesting textures – tartans and checks, vertical stripes, statement slogans in print, patches or tatting finish, in rich, vibrant colors. Each ensemble was a head-to-toe moment that blended effortlessness with a dose of classic ivy league details.
Of course, PENSHOPPE FANCON featuring Sandara Park and Nam Joo Hyuk will not be complete without #TeamPenshoppe’s Sandara Park and Nam Joo Hyuk. After walking the runway, Sandara Park and Nam Joo Hyuk got the chance to interact with select audience members through fun activities. 200 lucky audience members also got the chance to meet and greet the two Korean superstars!
“This was clearly the biggest of the year!” Jeff Bascon, Penshoppe Brand Director notes. “After we announced the event, tickets were wiped out in just 5 days! We’re ecstatic about the overwhelming support that we got from the fans. He then adds, “We share the excitement that everyone felt on seeing the two (Sandara Park and Nam Joo Hyuk) together on stage for PENSHOPPE FANCON! Thank you all for being part of PENSHOPPE FANCON featuring Sandara Park and Nam Joo Hyuk!”
