Boardwalk Celebrates 20th Anniversary with a ‘One Big Show’

Boardwalk held a fashion show at the Araneta Coliseum Saturday night, June 18, in celebration of the direct-selling company's 20th year anniversary.

The celebration is dubbed “One Big Show,” and true enough, Boardwalk has delivered one of the biggest fashion shows to be held this year. The event was filled with impressive production numbers to the delight of thousands of of Boardwalk members, invited guests and members of the press.

Opening the event was Boardwalk’s Business Ambassador Kris Aquino. It was hosted by Kristine Caballero, Patrick Moore and Borgy Manotoc.

On the other hand, celebrities like Guji Lorenzana, David Chua, Victor Aliwalas, Justine Gabionza, Rich Herrera and Rich Hardin joined Boardwalk’s 100 models who walked the ramp.

There was also a special segment featuring top beauty queens, models and actresses from the 70s, 80s and 90s all wearing plus-sized designs like Cherry Pie Picache (award-winning actress), Desiree Verdadero (3rd Runner-up Miss Universe 1984), Azenith Briones (Mutya ng Pilipinas Miss Photogenic 1975 who later became an actress), Alma Concepcion (Bb. Pilipinas International 1994), Joyce Ann Burton (Miss Young Philippines 1981, Bb.

They all proved that fashion is ageless when you’re wearing the right clothes.
