walk on the wild side

I always look forward to November mostly because of the fact that it is merely a month away from the holidays. On the more practical side, it also reminds me that this is the last chance I can do last-minute shopping or search for gifts before the festive but often chaotic month of December sets in. If you, like many others, suffer from last-minute shopping syndrome then fear not, because we got you covered. Our annual gift guide tradition, as carefully curated by the very same editors who churn out content issue after issue, is abound with fashion, beauty, and lifestyle ideas that will satisfy even the most discerning. Before you get overwhelmed, allow us to help you navigate the holidays by steering you in the right direction, at least…

letter of the month

Dear MEGA, As a young child growing up in the 90s, I feel like I missed out on all the major (and not to mention, totally awesome) pop culture moments of the time as I was only allowed to watch Sesame Street on VHS and my time to go out was as you can imagine, limited. Needless to say, it was a frustration seeing all the colorful, vibrant and nonchalant era roll on by and not have an active hand at it. Thankfully, time works wonders and as we are fond of going through cycles, the bangin’ 90s is back again. Finally, I can be part of the movement.

get the party started

TOUCH UP Glistening skin and fresh, unbothered hair, the focus of beauty was definitely primal No stranger to making the unexpected happen, we at MEGA have certainly taken a liking to putting together some of the biggest, brightest and most beautiful stars in one page. Why? Well, with the rush and rudiments accounted for, it is fun and because yes, we totally can. Akin to throwing a party and enjoying it in the process, this shoot was unlike any other. Simultaneously happening was a cover shoot, a campaign shoot and even a digital execution for Folded & Hung, the retail brand responsible for casting three of the most stellar names of their time. Georgina Wilson, Nadine Lustre and Maymay Entrata may have had a full day ahead of them, packed to the…

Putting this issue together we constantly asked ourselves: How does one shop now? With Instagram tapping into e-commerce through their product tagging functionality that directly links you into a particular brand’s website once clicked, there exists a new and seamless experience for users. Endless personal shopping sites have also been launched and the demand for ‘see now, buy now’ on the runway has affected our purchasing decisions. The digital landscape has shaped much of our lives—especially shopping. As the holidays inch closer and closer, MEGA makes the most out of it with our shopping issue. Who wouldn’t want to adorn themselves in Ken Samudio’s fall-ready blooms as seen in Accessories? How about a gilded confection from Max and Co. in Retail Trend Report? Our style pages are also overflowing with ideas…
