Maja Salvador continues her 10th showbiz anniversary celebration with another project that aims to give back to her fans, and help the less fortunate at the same time.
Today, July 13, the “All Must Gaux” charity bazaar will open for customers from 9:00 AM onwards, at The Garage in Tomas Morato Ave., Quezon City.
In an exclusive interview with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) on July 12, Maja explained how this project came about.
“Kasi siyempre tapos na iyong Ina Kapatid Anak, tapos si Margaux kasi hindi ko in-expect na magiging… kasi grabe si Margaux naging fashionista, mas binigyang kulay nila iyong character na Margaux.
“Parang every labas ni Margaux parang nag-aabang iyong tao kung anong outfit ni Margaux—sa party, sa debut nila, tapos sa mga fashion shows nila.
“Ano iyong look ni Margaux, iyong hindi lang kasi iisa, paiba-iba. So sobrang daming damit ni Margaux, ang daming gowns and shoes, so nag-decide ako na parang…
“Kasi bilang artista parang ang hirap ulitin nung damit kasi sobrang tumatak iyong mga damit ni Margaux, so nag-decide ako na i-bazaar iyon.
“Tapos iyong mga gowns and bags ni Margaux, iyong iba kasi branded, so parang nag-decide kami na i-auction naman iyon.”
The bazaar will run until Sunday, July 14, when the auction will be held.
Among the pieces up for bidding is a yellow gown designed by Veejay Floresca, which was used in Celine (Kim Chiu) and Margaux’s joint debut party.
A pink gown by Neric Beltran, which was worn by Margaux when she “eloped” with Ethan (Enchong Dee), is also included.
Other custom-designed pieces by Pepsi Herrera, Edwin Tan, and Mitch Araullo will also be auctioned.
For shoes and accessories, Maja says there will be a variety of high-end and mid-priced brands—like Steve Madden, Celine, Aldo, and Guiseppe Zanotti—in the mix.
Maja plans to donate the project’s earnings to several charitable foundations.
MAJA UNVEILS @ 10. Star Magic’s initial efforts for Maja’s 10th showbiz anniversary celebration, the Maja Unveils @ 10 concert series, also continues its run with new and bigger venues lined up.
The all-around performer says about the project, “Kung dati nakakagulat kasi may mga malls na [pumapayag], ngayon parang palaki na siya ang palaki.
“I’m… hindi ko alam kung paano na, kung saan nanggagaling iyong happiness, pero sobrang saya po.”
Maja also says she feels grateful for the support being given to her by her team.
“I’m lucky na iyong team ng Maja Unveils, hindi lang sa concert nakiki-cooperate kundi pati sa kung ano man iyong gusto kong gawin or maisip, ayun, nandoon sila nakasuporta.”
