There are more sides to fashion, and many, many more sides to the people in fashion, than meet the collective eye. Beyond the shows and catwalks, we discover people with a myriad of interests and dreams who aren’t just fashionistas, they’re passion-istas.
Professional Model’s Association of the Philippines (PMAP) President, runway fixture and model mother, Angel Agustin, has always been a joy to do fashion shows with, but did you know that on top of that graceful walk is a head for investments? Taking care of the future is something she has always been passionate about (she’s also a certified nurse and is currently a senior unit head at investment firm AXA–whew, talk about super-hyphenated!) so there’s no doubt that she holds her head high in fashion for reasons well beyond the catwalk.
