The Event that Was: Make Your Own Havaianas 2009

9:24 PM


A few weeks back, top global footwear brand Havaianas successfully took flip-flop fashion to the next level as they invited some of Cebu's Havaianaticos (the apt name for those who have embraced the Havaianas lifestyle) to get first dibs of this year's Make Your Own Havaianas 2009-Media and VIP Night.


The MYOH is a yearly affair that has successfully transcended to become AS popular and as sought-after as the flip-flops themselves. This is the only time of the year where Havaianaticos can
fully customize their pair of Havaianas, from the strap and sole choice, right down to the embellishments of swarovski studs and the nifty little pins. In short, tons of fun with the choosing!

Big kudos to the local Havaianas family for adapting Filipino pride as the overall theme for this year. I'm super adorin' the transformation of some national icons (vinta, tarsier, sorbetes cart, etc) into cute little strap pins.

Congratulations are definitely in order for 2009's MYOH.. till next year!


(And of course, thank you to the lovely ladies behind the occasion: Big Seed Media tandem Jaja Chiongbian-Rama and April Rama, and A.L. Amizade's Leanne Florendo and Aimil Sarmiento, for never forgetting us bloggers
during Havaianas events.)

  18. Mmmh Actually at a first glance "Havainas'Sexyness-issime potential" can let us sceptical BUT this flashy/playful bunch of colors combined with its "CopaCabana-esque" power of evocation sounds as such a seductive cocktail, placed under the (exciting)sign of "Beach GLAM" !!!

  24. Honey, your life seems to be fantastic! I'm still in college but look forward to doing a fashion based degree (my career goal is to achieve a successful career in buying/merchandising -maybe some journalism as well...).

    May I ask, if you've done a degree, which course did you do???
