The pageant night of FASHIONISSIMO 2011 held at the Palacio de Maynila, last night Otober 23, 2011 in Malate, Manila City was successful. Credit that to the 27 handsome and hot bodies that competed for the prize at stake. It was an exceptionally great looking batch, but at the end of the fast-paced pageant, Nelson Banzuela, 21 years old from Pasig City emerged as the grand winner.
The finalists were more or less even in looks, but it was Nelson quick wit that made him stand out and ultimately won the title. Others in the winning circle were 1st runner-up: John Bardo Espiritu from Marikina City, 2nd runner-up: Hamid Hassan from Sudan.
