We at MEGA like to challenge the status quo, on our own terms. Disagreeing to the age-old concept of conflict, we steer clear and raise the banner of unity: No hate, just love—that is our battle cry.
Fresh from a much deserved (and much talked about) victory as Miss Universe 2015, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach joins our cause as she proudly fronts our 24th Anniversary Issue. With so much stories and realizations, the striking beauty transforms into a modern Filipina right before our eyes and on the world stage to boot.
An organic meeting of the minds comes together for fashion, beauty and lifestyle where we run the gamut from contemporary ladylike to statement making romance. We also pack this issue with think pieces that will hopefully bring you to a moment of introspection.
We are already bound by a communal love for fashion, beauty and lifestyle—we just have to take it up a notch and come together heading towards a level of equilibrium we can achieve hand-in-hand. And we definitely mean world peace and more.
