The month of June is always a cause for celebration. More than the surface level of globally consumed fashion and the beauty, this is the time of the year that we champion Filipinos who have made great strides in their respective fields for our annual Pinoy Pride issue. This year’s roster may be a mixed bunch, covering the arts, business and entertainment sectors, but one thing is common among them: Their achievements have made them the standards and inspirations we should look up to. In one way or another, they have impacted our lives and influenced us on how to achieve greater and grander goals and more importantly, just to be better in everything we do. This holds especially true in fashion, as we also put the spotlight on Filipino designers…

Dear MEGA, Social media definitely plays a huge role on how we interact, communicate, and build relationships in this complex digital age. While it is inevitable to keep your personal life completely private, it makes you wonder how social media can affect your own little world when the relationship you’ve built and shared suddenly ends. One article in particular that struck me was your story on navigating breakups in the digital age. Perhaps it was a little serendipitous for me to chance upon this story as I am actually going through it myself. Breakups are never easy. They always leave a mess that we eventually have to deal with sooner or later. In this case, the real mess doesn’t just involve going through your room and clearing out the tangible things…

the reunion

Call us incredibly persistent or downright crazy, but we at MEGA really like to shoot for the stars—literally and figuratively. And as it runs deep into the spine of our magazine, it becomes apparent that we don’t rest on just being enough or ticking the bare minimum. This holds very true for the highly-anticipated Pinoy Pride issue we cull annually with much enthusiasm. An opportunity to not only flex our creative and cerebral muscles, the June edition of the magazine is the best chance to showcase the very best that the Philippines has to offer. So, it goes without saying that we aren’t stopping at the best, not now or ever. An endeavour that is in no way a walk in the park, we totally went for it and brought together…

for the culture

Filipino fashion is definitely anything but ordinary. From taking over Los Angeles Fashion Week to multiple fashion showcases across the globe, local talent is rightfully making an impact on a massive scale—recognized by their unyielding creativity and fierce individualistic expression. This month, it’s all about the celebration of fashion as we demonstrate the flair of Filipino craft. In Get Ready To Wear, we pay homage to traditional wear translated into the modern across all ages. In Best Buys, we dissect the season’s coolest trends with new takes to the classic pencil skirt, the current runway favored nylon, and the tough hue of army green. For New Kids On The Block, Jeremy Tan makes friends with chaos through his elaborate deconstructed denim creations, while we delve into the intricacies of local…
