Essa SantosMaria Teresa Angela “Essa” Santos, 22, was born and raised in Cagayan de Oro and is an AB Philosophy graduate of Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan. She is currently based in Cebu City as a marketing associate. Beyond this pretty face and known figure is a vibrant individual who is passionate about the arts, books and music and is a self-confessed endorphin-junkie who loves the rush she gets after working up a sweat. Essa balances her larger-than-life personality with her classic minimalist sense of style, opting for simple and timeless pieces with a touch of romantic and feminine details like lace, soft fabrics and dainty accessories.

Angela FortichAngela Ma Eldora Fortich may look quiet and reserved at first glance but she is down-to-earth and approachable. This 22-year-old beauty delights in long conversations over delicious food and is a lover of life. She is adventurous and loves exploring beaches, mountains, and most of all, the world of fashion. She pushes the boundaries of her personal style and can go from fun and flirty one day to poised and chic the next. Angela believes that style should be limitless and most importantly fun. She accentuates pieces with a burst of color and can pull anything off effortlessly with grace and class, even if it's just an old pair of jeans. She lives by the adage, "No matter how high the heel, never forget to place your feet firmly on the ground."

Adlai RiveraAdlai Marcel Rivera may be known as a sporty individual who is in his element in the great big outdoors but he also knows how to have fun in the kitchen where he likes to hone his culinary skills. This 22-year-old soccer player is free of any prejudice and has a high expectation of self. Off the field, he likes to lay back, kick off the cleats and slip into something comfortable and preppy. On a typical day, you will find this athlete-next-door with striking good looks in his style staples, which consist of tapered shorts, slip-on shoes and a trendy statement shirt.
