Manille’s fashionable and influential set — Linda Ley, Yoli Ayson, Lilibeth Campos, Suzette Hahn-Lopez, Ruth Rodriguez and Gina Mohnani — walked the runway as Criselda Lontok’s ambassadors during the launch of her summer collection. These women of substance beauty, style, femininity, sophistication and strength of character epitomize the Criselda Lontok brand.

In her pursuit of making sure rarity is still very much wearable, the brilliant, talented and creative Criselda Lontok, Rustan’s in-house designer, presents elegant summer pieces that are at once dauntless and exquisite, dahlings.

The collection features cruise wear with oversized bows and bell sleeves, classic silhouettes embellished with just the right amount of fringe and flounce, and an evening line that can take you from romantic beach jaunts to grand formal evening balls.

“Exquisite pieces that will captivate women of all ages who are acquainted with the fact that summer is a style adventure, meant for everyone to enjoy,” said the dynamic Criselda.

 “As I look forward to the next generation of Criselda Women, let me usher in summer with fresh new elements and pops of color without losing touch with my fashion dictum that style and comfort should never be a paradox but a fusion,” Criselda explained to the loud applause of the fashionable guests as she took her deserved bow, dahlings.

“How I wish I could invite more friends, but I was only limited to 40 invitees by the venue. I love to celebrate my birthday with lots of delicious cocktail food and endless drinks, and taking lots of photos by my stuffed piggy toys since it's the Year of the Pig,” said Agile, who looked stunning in Randy Ortiz.
