Proving that Cebu has so much more than Monique Lhuiller to offer to the world of bridal fashion, the City’s leading fashion designers showcased their bridal masterpieces on the three-day wedding event.

After the ceremonial toast led by event co-presentors’ Ayala Center Cebu, ABS-CBN, and Kasal.com, the members of the Fashion Council of Cebu presented their own interpretation of the modern Filipina bride.

Albert Arriba’s halter top gown exudes sexy confidence while Minnie Yuviengco’s strapless number with matching veil conveys sweet delicacy.

Jun Escario’s creation radiates with raw sexuality, the exact opposite of Arcy Gayatin’s mini bride dress perfect for the demure bride.


Felix Yu’s off-shoulder gown is made more fetching with the handiwork on its fabric whereas Cary Santiago’s signature for “alternative details” left the crowd in awe with his bareback, silver-lined wedding creation.

Not to be outdone, Philip Rodriguez did a modern take on native fabrics, putting extra oomph on both the bodice and skirt.

And of course, everybody just fell in love with the sweetness and lightness of OJ Hofer’s gold and tulle wedding creation.The second day of the event continued to celebrate the ingenuity of Cebuano fashion designers, with the bridal creations of the members of Cebu Fashion Designers Alliance taking center stage.

To complete the three-day festivity, Koncepts and More, together with fashion designer Jed Sevilla, did a mock wedding presentation, and Ever Bilena Cosmetics held a make up competition among Cebuano make up artists.

Premier wedding suppliers – from Cebu’s famous hotels and resorts to renowned cakes and photo/video providers to seasoned wedding planners and floral stylists – were showcased in the different paseos of Ayala Center Cebu.

Wedding related talks and musical renditions by topnotch Cebuano talents were held simultaneously.
Truly, only the best and finest of Cebu’s wedding industry for Kasalang Filipino 2007 roadshow finale.
