It’s been a lucky year for Mr. Martin Martin and his models/talents at the Elites Model Management. This 2014, many projects came their way- and that included the special guesting of the Elites models at the recently-concluded anniversary concert of the Philippine Stagers Foundation at the Araneta Coliseum. And now, two of Elites models- Aljon Salonga and Hessa Isabelle Gonzales will soon have their own TV show at PTV-4- entitled “IsKoolMates”.

Yes, Aljon and Hessa will host “IsKoolMates”, another TV talk show from PTV-4 (aside from their top-rating “Personage” show), which tackles education, campus stories and the youth.

“Aljon, one of my best models and talents from Elites, is truly a good speaker, communicator and interviewee”, Mr. Martin said. “A blogger who interviewed Aljon one time was truly impressed with the way Aljon answered his questions. That’s why I am also confident that he could be a good host for a TV show. Aljon is very articulate.”

Joining Aljon on the show, aside from Hessa, is Jules Guiang, who’s the son of Mr. Martin’s classmate at San Beda College during the ’80’s.

Meanwhile, watchout for the forthcoming Elites fashion show at Farmer’s Plaza on this coming 2015, by the month of February. It’s going to be a grand fashion show which will feature all the best male and female models of Elites Model Management.

“And we’re also getting ready for our Boracay invasion very soon!!!”, Mr. Martin said with excitement at the end. “It’s going to be one grand vacation with bits of modelling tasks for us. Photographer Vino Oriarte and blogger Robert Silverio are both joining all of us on this trip! Our major sponsor for this trip is the Pearl of the Pacific Boracay. Mr. Albert Sanson, a distant relative of mine by affinity is the owner of the place. It’s such a great place located at the Station 1 of Boracay.”

With that, need we say more???

Nag-dress fitting na ang ilang avant-garde male models ng The Elites Model Management ni Mr. Martin Martin a few days ago sa The Vatican dress shop ng fashion designer na si Ulysses King (located sa 4th floor ng The Podium mall), para sa gaganaping guesting nila sa concert ng Philippine Stagers Foundation entitled “The Stagers at the Big Dome”.

Sa concert na iyon kasi, magsisilbing special guests ang Elites Models and Elites Hearthrobs in a 10-minute production number. Kaya naman, todo suporta sa kanila ang mabait na fashion designer na si Mr. Ulysses King.

Kasama ng The Elites models nu’ng araw na iyon sina Ms. Jackie Caja with her lovely daughter Marie Florence Aquino, ang fotog na si Vino Oriarte, ang Godfather ng The Elites na si Mr. Martin Martin, and yours truly (me, sssip*).

Sampung Elites models ang nag-fitting that day. At tunay namang kay gaganda ng mga men’s wear na ginawa ni Mr. Ulysses King para sa kanila na isusuot ng mga Elites male models sa gaganaping mini fashion number sa said concert.

Present during that day ang mga Elites models na sina Mark Herrera, Nikki Co, Jao Viola, Chad Malit, Mark Lim, Raven de Vera Molina, Christopher Abaya, Nathan Madrigal,  Jeffrey Yamanouchi, at iba pa.

More power to the Elites!

a public clarification…

PUBLIC CLARIFICATION:

Ang “merging” po na isinulat ko sa aking blog na “Sssip’s Swing” blog (sssip.wordpress.com) ay isa po lamang “artistic expression” na nagre-relate sa pagme-merge ng isang grupo ng self-sustaining theater people at isang grupo rin ng independent modelling group- sila ang Philippine Stagers Foundation at The Elites Model Management nina Vince Tanada at Martin Martin. PERO MAGAGANAP PO LAMANG IYON SA ISANG PRODUCTION NUMBER SA NALALAPIT NA SOLO CONCERT NG PHILIPPINE STAGERS, AT GUEST PO LAMANG DOON ANG ELITES MODEL MANAGEMENT. Nagkaroon kasi ng kaunting confusion sa impresyon ng mga press people and other showbiz “know-hows” nang mai-blog ko ang pagme-merge, diumano, ng Stagers at Elites. At iyon ay isa lamang artistikong paglalahad sa aking parte. Ang nalalapit na concert ng Stagers na magsisilbing reunion ng past and present Stagers ni Vince ay sarili nilang hirap at kayod. The Philippine Stagers Foundation is known as a “self-sustaining theater group”. Nag-exist sila at nag-succeed without the help of any big commercial agencies or benefactors, lalo ring wala silang tie-up sa anumang mga higanteng korporasyon. Kaya huwag naman sanang isipin ng iba na ang pagme-merge ng Stagers at Elites sa isang mini-fashion number lamang sa concert ng Stagers na gaganapin sa Araneta Coliseum on November 24 ng taong ito, ay may iba nang kulay. Huwag nilang isipin na may tie-up na ang Stagers sa fashion industry. Dahil tulad ng Stagers ni Vince, ang The Elites Model Management ni Mr.Martin Martin ay isa ring independent modelling group at hindi umaasa kaninuman. Nagpaunlak lamang si Mr. Martin sa proposal ng yours truly na mag-guest ang The Elites sa concert nina Vince dahil sa salitang “friendship”, meaning, “for friendship’s sake”. Parehong may prinisipyo sina Vince Tanada at Mr. Martin. Ang mga principles at values nila in organizing their own respective groups ay tunay namang hinangaan ng yours truly, dahil naniniwala din po kami sa salitang “independence”. Tulad nila, hindi rin po kami umaaasa sa anumang higanteng media network or movie productions. Kaya naman sinusuportahan namin din ang mga tulad nina Vince at Mr.Martin. KAYA INUULIT KO, SPECIAL GUESTS LAMANG PO ANG THE ELITES SA CONCERT NG STAGERS. Sana’y huwag nilang bigyan ng ibang kulay ang artistic expression na naisulat namin. SALAMAT!
