Filipino-Swedish fashion influencer Bryanboy acknowledged the seeming feud between “two Filipinas” who are Fashion Week regulars, but chose to stay neutral citing his friendship with both camps.

At his contract signing with Viva Entertainment, Bryanboy, himself a Fashion Week veteran, was asked if he was aware of the issue regarding “two Filipinas at Fashion Week,” apparently referring to Heart Evangelista and Pia Wurtzbach, who have yet to directly address the matter.


The alleged feud between two fashion mavens piqued the interest of netizens during Fashion Week, as the former glam team of Evangelista now works for Wurtzbach, after a falling out with the Kapuso actress.


But Bryanboy did not feign innocence of the matter, choosing instead to take the diplomatic route.

“Sa akin lang talaga (For me, really), there’s space for everybody. That’s all. There is space for everybody… and you know, bahala na sila magsabunutan (just let them fight),” he said in jest.

The content creator also said that Evangelista and Wurtzbach are “friends” he both “love dearly,” while attesting to their talents as individuals.

“I mean, both of them are my friends. I love them both dearly,” he said. “They are both talented. They’re both very… everyone’s talented, beautiful, rich, and nice, you know,” he said. “I’m all about world peace po. World peace is the solution.”

Bryanboy also said it’s “uplifting” to see more Filipino representation in the fashion industry.

“I think it’s really great. Anything to make the Philippines have a bigger presence in Paris, Milan, or New York Fashion Week, it’s a good thing. It’s all about uplifting. It makes us strong. There’s strength in numbers,” he said.


“Before, ako lang mag-isa, you know what I mean? Like nakaka-sad [dati] na walang Filipinos (Before, I’m all alone, you know what I mean? It makes me sad there weren’t any Filipinos back then),” said Bryanboy, who has been attending Fashion Week since 2008.

Now, he said that he is happy to see so many other Filipinos occupying the platform, among them, Anne Curtis whom he had met last year.

“I think it’s a good thing to have more celebrities and more personalities,” he continued. “It’s basically representation. I want Filipinos to think that anybody with a dream and goal can go to Fashion Week. Ultimately, it’s the brands who will invite you.”

On surviving at Fashion Week

Citing his experience, the fashion influencer pointed out that “anybody and anyone” can attend the events. But he clarified that it’s about the “work” put in that solidifies one’s presence, saying the designers are the “true stars” of Fashion Week.

“You can be a PR, staff, press, editor, or buyer. Being an artista or socialite is not the only ticket to go there. And Fashion Week is a business. It’s a lot of work.” he said. “The stars of Fashion Week are the designers. They spend six months slaving away to put up a collection. It’s not the guests or celebrities.”

“It’s the designers, their work, and their brands. It’s not a fame game. Celebrities come and go. Fame comes and goes,” he further added.

Bryanboy stressed that every guest is just a “name on a spreadsheet” at the end of the day while clarifying the effort to put fashion on the forefront behind the scenes that matter most.

“It’s about your relationships with the brands, designers, and people who work in fashion,” he said. “It’s not about fame. Brands only invite famous people for their brands to be talked about. But at the end of the day, we’re all names on a spreadsheet. It’s about your relationships.”
