Sakura: The Blossoming of Fashion and Style

-

CEBU, Philippines - On July 25, Plantation Bay welcomed guests to the lush grounds of Mogambo Springs. The Japanese-themed soiree called Sakura was aptly set in the resort’s half-hectare spa, which has an elegant Tokugawa village setting. The event featured designs by two of Singapore’s freshest names in fashion, and had guests dressed up in their best Japanese chic attire.

Cebuana designer Lotte Delima-Edwards, now based in Singapore, presented her “Japan in My Mind” collection reminiscent of the geisha’s feminine sensuality, featuring flowing dresses and intricate beadwork. Ana Liew’s “Tokyo Sky” collection included jersey styles in modern prints and cuts. Both collections are perfect for sophisticated women, the modern-day epitome of beauty.

The designers’ creations came alive on MAC Models and AD Models Homme et Femme. The well-heeled ladies of Cebu society also modeled for Delima-Edwards’ collection, as did several beauties from Singapore society, who flew in especially for the event. Maquillage was care of the creative, talented hands of Jessie Glova and Romero Vergara, and ornamental headpieces were crafted by Shandar. There were also dances inspired by Japanese geisha and samurai, performed by Plantation Bay staff members. The show was directed by event specialist Monch Ceballos.

Plantation Bay’s generous sponsors were Ralph’s Wines and Spirits, Graphic Star, MTV Philippines, and Cebu Pacific, who raffled off three roundtrip tickets to Singapore.

Mogambo Springs was judged the Best Spa Experience in Asia by the Asia Spa and Wellness Festival 2009. It was short-listed for the Best Spa Therapist Team of the Year by Asia Spa’s Crystal Awards 2008.
