A lot of the spectators were amazed at how teen actressMaja Salvador looked like at Folded and Hung's "Street Cast: Walk the RampThis Summer" fashion show at the World Trade Center last March 24.
Aside from launching the Street Cast Model Search, Folded and Hungalso introduced Maja as their newest and youngest celebrity endorser thatnight.
"We got Maja because she's the next big star. And she's young, she's very talented, she'svery beautiful and sexy. She embodiedthe brand, so she's a perfect candidate," said Ronald Pineda, president ofFolded and Hung Clothing.
From Claudine Barretto and Gelli de Belen, Folded and Hungchose a younger image model like Maja to attract a younger market. According to Pineda, their goal is to reachto the teenage market. He added, "It'sour target market. Kuha niya ang marketna gusto namin."
Maja, on the other hand, was very thankful for having adifferent project this time. She said,"Sobrang swerte ko. Wala akong masabi,ito yung dream ko at ito natupad na naman."
Maja did not only catch the attention of movie or TVproducers but advertisers as well. It will be remembered that Maja has already endorsed several productsin the past. In fact, Folded and Hung is not the first clothing line she has endorsed. She wasonce an image model for Bobson Clothing Apparel.
