Ayala runway models break world record
Milan, Paris, London, New York and… Manila. It’s hardly the center of the fashion world but more than 2,000 models have taken to the catwalk in a Makati shopping mall to claim a new world record.
A total of 2,255 men, women and children, from strutting seasoned professionals to stumbling first-timers, took part in the record for the most models to walk down the runway at a single event.
They queued in unglamorous surroundings late Thursday, hemmed in by metal railings, to take their turn on the catwalk at the renovated Ayala Mall during a fashion event that lasted several hours.
And a Guinness World Records adjudicator later certified that the attempt had beaten the previous record of 1,957 models set in Istanbul in May, according to a statement from real estate agent Ayala Land Inc.
