Francis Magalona is an idol! He influenced me in many ways and I look up to him equally for the things he did. From making music, to rapping, producing, directing, etc. and especially photography. One of the reasons that I got into photography (aside for my love of taking pictures) was the fact that he was a very good photographer himself. Then come around 2007 (if my memory serves me right :D ), FM along with other colleagues started the Francis Magalona Clothing Co. Nabaliw ang Pinas, including myself. :) Mainly with patriotic and socially relevant designs; combined with his lyrics and personal style, FMCC shirts brought out the Makabayan in all of us.
I have been supporting the clothing line ever since, even until now that I have my own: GudVibes Clothing. My boyfriend, Chino, is also a fan of his, so I can say that this business that we started is also inspired by FMCC. We have attended various events in support of the brand and even won the FMCC Valentines Couples Contest with this photo :
And when FMCC and Saab announced that they were looking for photos of girls wearing FMCC, I knew I had to participate. :) Chino sent one taken last March 7, 2010 during my last trip to Hawaii with my sisters. Last night, submitted entries were finally up and yes, we were included! :D

We are just some of the many girls who love FMCC and will continue to support you. Much love and respect to FM. <3
