Inside Philippine Fashion’s Biggest Night

The unveiling of Vogue Philippines’ maiden issue culminated in a gala that brought together the best of the local creative industry, all of them impeccably dressed. Held at Shangri-la The Fort’s Grand Ballroom on August 29, the occasion saw entertainment icons such as Piolo Pascual, Anne Curtis-Smith, Marian Rivera, and Jericho Rosales, among others, in attendance. Also interpreting the black and white theme with pared-back sophistication were Karen Davila, Charmaine and Mike Lagman, Katrina Razon, Jess Kienle, Marion Branellec De Guzman, and Tina Maristela Ocampo.

Of course, the industry’s established figures including Inno Sotto, Chito Vijandre, Ivarluski Aseron and Mark Higgins all came to celebrate the historic night in Philippine fashion and dressed a number of stylish attendees. Contemporary designer Carl Jan Cruz attended the event with Paloma Zobel, whom he dressed, while designer Chris Nick was also in attendance with the mother-and-daughter duo he dressed, Nina Herrera Huang and Nikki Huang. Beauty queens including Pia Wurtzbach, Kylie Verzosa, and Megan Young also celebrated with Vogue Philippines. Below, the gala attendees.
