Top 20ch2 press conference by Physical @ Diablo Rosso

 Hola mis queridos lectores y compañeros de la blogosfera! El pasado Miércoles tuve la oportunidad de asistir a la conferencia de prensa, en Diablo Rosso, de la compañía de modelaje mas reconocida a nivel nacional, Physical, donde se anuncio la nueva iniciativa Top 20 de chico y chica modelo. Los que vivimos en Panamá conocemos muy bien estos concursos sin embargo este año deciden lanzarlo con una nueva visión eliminando precisamente el concepto de concurso y a través de castings en todo el territorio nacional seleccionar 20 modelos y educarlos en todo lo relativo a la carrera de modelaje y convertirlos en los proximos 20 top models no solo de Panamá sino a nivel internacional.
Hello my dear readers and fellow bloggers! Last wednesday I had the chance of attending the press conference, at Diablo Rosso, from one of the most recognized modeling agencies in the country, Physical, where it was annouced the new iniciative Top 20 ch2. For all of those who live in Panama, and follow fashion, this guys and girls modeling contest is quite well known nevertheless this year they have decided to launch it with a whole new perspective eliminating the contest concept and through castings on all national territory select 20 models and educate them in all the endeavours of the modelling career and turn them into the next 20 top models not only in Panama but worldwide.
 Marie Claire Fontaine, Physical´s co-owner and Justine Pasek, Physical model and ex Miss Universe

En la conferencia se explico que esta nueva iniciativa tiene como propósito impulsar la carrera de los modelos del país y posicionarlos en la mira internacional, utilizando como plataforma para los castings los nuevos medios tecnologicos buscan ampliar el rango de personas interesadas en participar y así mismo abrir las opciones de la agencia a la oportunidad de seleccionar un grupo fuerte y con proyección solida. De estos chicos y chicas varios participarán en sesiones, campañas y pasarelas para las compañías, marcas y eventos mas prestigiosos buscando abrirles la puertas.
At the conference it was explained that this new iniciative has a purpose of launching the careers of the national models with the intention of positioning them in the international view, using as a plataform for the castings the new technological media they seek to expand the range of people interested in participating and at the same time to broad their final selections into a strong group with solid proyection. Some of this guys and girls will be participating in shoots, ad campaigns and runways for the most prestigious companies, brands and events helping to open the doors for them.
 A la conferencia de prensa asistieron un grupo selecto de medios de comunicación entre los cuales estuvimos los bloggers. Tengo que resaltar y felicitar a la compañía Physical, así mismo como expresar mi enorme emoción, pues entre los puntos que revelaban consideraron que los bloggers somos importantes como medios de comunicacion independientes que funcionamos como el termómetro de la industria y expresaron su deseo de crear dinámicas de trabajo para sus proyectos entre los cuales están el festival MACRO y el Fashion Week Panamá. Como punto personal quiero añadir que esta decisión me pareció increíble pero aun mas es el hecho que finalmente una empresa de trayectoria reconoció a los blogs entre los demás medios dándonos el reconocimiento que tanto añorábamos. Lo logramos chicos, la revolución blogger ha comenzado!
To the conference were invited a select group of media in which bloggers where included. I have to highlight and congratulate Physical, and at the same time express my great emotion, because in the points they mentioned it was revealed they consider bloggers as important independent media that work as an industry thermometer and they openly voiced their intention to create work dinamics with us for their proyects in which you can count the MACRO festival and of course Fashion Week Panama. As a personal quote I would like to say that I thought this iniciative with bloggers was amazing but even more the fact that finally a reowned company in the fashion industry recognized the blogs giving us the aknowledgement that we were so longing for. We did it guys, the blogger revolution has begun!
