Criselda Lontok did something different and touching during her fashion show last Thursday at Rustan’s Makati.At the end of the show, Criselda wistfully said: “I dedicated the show to my dear cousin Ching delas Alas Montinola who is currently sick, but gamely showed up today to attend with her pretty daughters Gina, Neny and Tina.”

 She added, “I am so happy that many appreciated the new styles I presented which are quite different from my usual designs. This time the combinations were royal blue with apple green, magenta with lime and other jewel colors on organza jackets, brocades with tassels and cape coats with appliqués that will make any dress elegant for more formal affairs.”
