Angel Locsin joins senatorial aspirant Liza Maza in nationalist fashion shoot

“Nationalism is fashionable.” This was the statement of women’s rights activist and senatorial candidate Liza Masa, actress Angel Locsin, and triathlete Sandra Araullo when they modeled for MAZAline, a collection of “statement gowns” launched in a photoshoot by Xander Angeles last Monday, February 22, at Edge of Light Studios in Quezon City.

Dubbed “Passion of a Nationalist Filipina,” the photo shoot featured the three personalities donning gowns that symbolize patriotism and the fight against violence against women and poverty. Dennis Cabalinan designed all the gowns.

Rep. Masa, who served three terms as as party-list representative for the women’s coalition Gabriela and is running for senator as Manny Villar’s guest candidate, said the photo shoot was a new way of showing the country’s problems.

“Times change but the problems women face-discrimination, inequality, poverty, and violence-never do. They only take different forms. It is a challenge for us to expose and oppose them through new and creative ways,” she said.

Locsin, for her part, believes the gowns can influence people “for the better.” The actress has endorsed Gabriela in past elections.

Lastly, Araullo, who won a silver medal for triathlon in the 2005 SEA games, also sympathizes with the cause.

“Women have a right to engage in activities where they feel empowered. They should not be subjected to violence and abuse,” she said.

“Passion of a Nationalist Filipina” is an event in preparation for International Women’s Month in March.
