One of the highlights of the weeklong celebration of Panaad Festival 2015 in San Dionisio, Iloilo was the Fashion Festival.
At the invitation of Mayor PETER PAUL and SALLY LOPEZ, four members of Iloilo Young Designers Council presented their latest Spring/Summer collections.
The front acts of comedian GALIXA “Nganga” MISALUCHA and dubstep dancers JEZEL and KLEIN TAPARAN prepared the crowd for the fashion extravaganza at town’s Plaza Mayor.
JET SALCEDO presented two collections. His first collection, called Neon, flashed with vivid colors and Pop Art prints. His signature style was very evident in his next collection, called Jet Black. It showcased cocktail dresses and evening gowns in lace, silk and fringes with expert beading and embroideries.
DODDIE VRIL TAN’s Outcast collection was inspired by day and night glamour. It has subtle colors in shades of earth tones for day, and sensual midnight and classic black for night, embellished with appliqués, beads and laser-cut floral details.
AGNESETTE AUSAN’s Drucklast collection was a play on hard and soft, prints and plains. From everyday wear to evening glamour, the creations were for modern, fashion forward and brave women.
With elements as inspiration, MIKE SORILLA’s pieces were both fiery and flowery. He paired linen blazers and taffeta tanks tops with slim and tight fit pants, and mixed floral, graphic and geometric prints for his dresses – all for easy Bohemian, dilettante and free-spirited look. His color palette included neon green, iron blue, mauve, chocolate, oyster and vermillion.
