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.
When not glamming it up in front of the camera or gliding down a runway, Michelle Panemanglor is poised, not just for a photo shoot, but to take on the family business in pharmaceuticals. While nothing could be further from fashion, it was a pleasant surprise to learn about her admiration for her father’s vision to make affordable medication more readily available to Filipinos (who can argue with that?). Whether in fashion or healthcare, it’s obvious that this Supermodel is more than ready to strut her stuff.
