Daniel Matsunaga, Nate Burkey, And More Get Ready For Summer At Flip-Flops Event

Celebs and designers who are as excited as you are about summer welcome beach season with an iconic Brazilian footwear brand.

Are you summer-ready? Take a cue from celebs and designers who took part in the launch of new summer collections at Philippine Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012 in SMX Convention Center. At the event, Brazilian flip-flop brand Ipanema presented their latest flip-flop styles paired with the Resort Wear Collection 2012 of several local designers in a sexy, summer-themed runway show.

The show featured the summer collections of Anthony Nocom, Lyle Ibanez, Catherine Cavilte, Raoul Ramirez, and Dave Ocampo. Among the familiar faces we spotted watching from the front rows were Sarah Meier, Cosmo Centerfolds Daniel Matsunaga and Tom Rodriguez, and football players Nate Burkey and Jonah Romero.

But, it's not just the celebs and fashionistas who got an early taste of summer. Elro Corporation, importers of Ipanema in the Philippines, held a raffle promo called "Spoil Your Sole In Rio," which promised a six-night stay at the Sofitel in Brazil, with access to the Ipanema and Copacabana beaches, a tour of the city's iconic venues, and seats at the Rio Carnival! They recently named Lea Alvarez as the winner, and she opted to transfer her prize--worth almost a million pesos--to her parents Lene and Marcial Dahonan! Way to go, Lea!
