Arjo Atayde gives life to the story of famous Pinoy fashion designer Rocky Gathercole this week on “MMK.” Rocky is currently conquering the international fashion scene because of the pieces he made for celebrities like Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Tyra Banks, and Paris Hilton. Get to see another side of Arjo as he takes another challenging role after impressing viewers with his performance as Joaquin in “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” that earned him the 48th Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation Box Office Entertainment Award Best Supporting Actor of the year award. Behind the famous designs of Rocky is a kid who longs for a complete family. A week after he was born, his mother left him with his alcoholic and womanizer father.
As time passed, Rocky realized that he was gay and was more in touch with his feminine side. Because of this, he decided to leave his father behind to look for his mother. However, their reunion wasn’t exactly how he pictured it to be. His mother, unfortunately, chose her new family over him and didn’t even welcome him with open arms. Rocky was then left wandering the streets of Roxas Boulevard all by himself.
How did he survive this ordeal? What paved the way for Rocky to enter the world of fashion and become one of the Philippines’ pride today?
