Bridal fashion forecast at ‘Weddings at the Peninsula’

Last April, The Peninsula Manila mounted its biggest wedding fair yet in cooperation with Christine Ong-Te Events and Manila Fashion Festival.

The event gave attendees the chance to see a range of wedding and celebratory essentials, each one chosen for their signature style and savoir faire — from bridal finery to tabletop decorations, delicious cakes and blooming bouquets to honeymoon and holiday destinations, photographers, events hosts and many more.

A highlight at the fair was the Peninsula Bridal Collection held on Saturday. The fashion parade of stunning bridal wear by acclaimed Filipino designers like Joey Samson, Hannah Kong, Mak Tumang, Banggo Niu, Jo Rubio, Jojie Lloren, Ivarluski Aseron, Steph Tan, JC Buendia, the students of F.A.B. Creatives, and the star designers of the Fashion & Design Council of the Philippines, was a show-stopper.

As described by those who attended the show, the fashion parade “combined the passion of 28 designers, the intimacy of a boutique show and the beauty of bridal fashion in a series of mini collections set against the backdrop of The Lobby’s iconic ‘Sunburst’ sculpture by National Artist Napoleon Abueva.”
