Marc Jacobs’ guest list might have been dramatically slashed this season but Bryanboy is winging his way to attend both the Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs shows. And the Manila-based blogger’s fashion week action doesn’t end there–he’s set to film and narrate a 25-minute documentary on Jacobs’ Fall/Winter 09/10 season for the Japanese market, debuting in July.

According to Bryanboy, the film is being coordinated by Martin Webb for Marc Jacobs Japan, with Lost In Translation co-producer Stephen Schible tapped as producer. To be filmed blogger reportage-style with a handicam, Bryanboy is due to tour Jacobs’ workshops, show rehearsals, backstage hair and makeup, front rows and the shows themselves. The blogger is an avid Jacobs fan–so much so that the designer famously named a bag after Bryanboy and FedExed him the prototype.
How is the New York Fashion Week virgin feeling about the prospect of being thrown in at the deep end of the event, with the promise of unfettered access to one of its hottest tickets? “Totally gobsmacked” he told WWD. “I thought the fairies had lost the plot! It’s an honor to have this very rare opportunity. I’m thrilled and excited to be working on this project with Marc Jacobs Japan as Marc is one of my favorite designers.”
