The Penthouse Fashion Series

10:57 PM

Just this Wednesday I had the privilege of witnessing firsthand the collaboration of local fashion and upscale clubbing at its finest. Presenting The Penthouse Fashion Series:

Presented by Loft's The Penthouse, Cebu's newest premier destination for the most illustrious of partyphiles, the Fashion Series aims to give rise to the region's fastest-rising young designers and maquillage artists, allowing direct appreciation for the clothes and at the same time bringing in an intense partying experience for all. Definitely can't get any better than that.

To be held every Wednesday night for the whole April and May, The Penthouse Fashion Series will bring in and will have an individual weekly feature on designers Mary Ty, Harvey Cenit, Mique Yapching, Barbie Alvez, Jonas Navarro, Norman and Manuel T. They will be keeping fashionistas abreast with the trends through an in-depth look at their designs and their forecasts for the upcoming seasons.. us stylephiles certainly can't afford to miss that!

Directed by one of the most notable names in Cebu fashion, Dino Lloren, expect to see twists and turns never seen before and grand presentations as the series continues to unveil in the coming weeks.. and I will definitely be there! Expect to be in-the-know and in real time only here at Chic In the Tropics.
