The Faces of the Uniqlo Philippines Cast Unveiled

Tonight, the quirky Japanese clothing brand Uniqlo has finally unveiled the Philippines cast or its official brand ambassadors prior to the upcoming opening of its first store in the Philippines. Held at the Grand Ballroom of Hotel Intercontinental at Makati City, Philippines, Uniqlo reveals the Filipino faces to exemplify its MADE FOR ALL Philosophy.

UNIQLO, the global apparel brand from Japan announces the complete Cast of highly admired Filipino personalities to embody its MADE FOR ALL Philosophy. MADE FOR ALL is the UNIQLO brand philosophy that captures the company‟s vision of providing casual clothing that is made for all people regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or any other ways that define an individual. The “UNIQLO Cast” plays a vital role in creating a bridge between the UNIQLO brand and the heart of every Filipino.

I personally love this brand. You can read my raves about it HERE and I can't get enough of this stuff. I just can't stop raving about it. :)  What I love most about their shirt is that the crisp feel of linen & soft feel of cotton matched perfectly together for the first time in one shirt. I'm so glad to have my 3rd Uniqlo shirt and I'm gonna rock it all day in a totally Uniqlo way.  There's nothing ordinary about this shirt because Uniqlo pays special attention to it, so you can never take its amazing softness and that comfort feel for granted.

I was really excited to know are the chosen Uniqlo cast in the Philippines. Sadly, I suck at guessing games. LOL

Now, can you guess who they are?

For the first male endorser, here's the clue:

He is a true sports figure, an inspiration for education (with two college degrees), he hosts, does commercial modeling and product endorsements, and also has his own business-all these while projecting a wholesome image.

Yep, he's no other than Mr. Perfect, Christopher John Alandy-Dy Tiu, or “Chris Tiu”.


She loves hosting, singing, acting in movies and now even in theater. She is also a staunch protector of the environment and a popular product endorser just like Chris Tiu. After singing the TV ad jingle of a popular softdrinks brand, there was no stopping..

... Monica Pauline “Nikki” Gil from conquering local showbusiness. :)

The third ambassador is so funny and witty. He is a singer-songwriter, the main man of Parokya ni Edgar, a funk rock/alternative group that made ripples in the early 90s music scene. Their group gave Filipino rock music a truly unique sound that was loved by many Filipino music fans regardless of socio-economic status and age. 

Hmm.. I think it's the guy from my favorite band... Alfonso “Chito” Miranda.  He's the man! :)
"First of all I'm not a rockstar. I'm a musician. I'm just a guy from a band." -Chito Miranda

Last but not the least, she is what you call a “triple threat”. She can act, dance and sometimes sing. She is part of ABS-CBN‟s impressive roster of talents and is a co-host of ABS-CBN‟s hugely popular Sunday noontime show ASAP.

She is ... 
  Maria Izadora “Iza” Ussher Calzado 

"I'm proud to announce that I am one of the brand ambassadors for Uniqlo here in the Philippines," Iza said.

So there you go, meet the Uniqlo Philippine cast...

Chris Tiu, Iza Calzado, Chito Miranda and Nikki Gil are the faces of UNIQLO in the Philippines. UNIQLO believes that the Filipino Cast members exemplify the MADE FOR ALL philosophy in their own daily lives. 

Each cast personifies different characters – sporty, fun, witty, serious, spontaneous — bringing out their own individualities. Despite these differences, they find a piece in UNIQLO that suits their distinct preference. Through Chris, Iza, Chito and Nikki, UNIQLO trusts that Filipinos will identify themselves in every product offering that the brand is set to bring to the Philippines.
Mr. Katsumi Kubota, Chief Operating Officer of Fast Retailing Philippines 
“We are happy that the UNIQLO Cast is finally revealed. We believe that they will be able to communicate UNIQLO‟s brand message and philosophy—„MADE FOR ALL‟—with such zeal and passion, our objective is to let Filipinos know that UNIQLO has clothes for every individual – no matter who they are, what they love or where they are from.. As we say in the company, there is a UNIQLO for everyone,” explains Katsumi Kubota, Chief Operating Officer of Fast Retailing Philippines, during the sidelights of the UNIQLO Cast Party.

The announcement of the four members of the “UNIQLO Cast” serves as a showcase of UNIQLO‟s preparations leading up to the opening of the very first UNIQLO store in the Philippines this coming June 15, 2012, at the 2nd floor of the Main Building, SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City.
