“Strike a Pose 3” Shows Off Gil Macaibay’s 2016 Season’s Collection

I have been procrastinating lately, I can’t find the so called drive when it comes to attending events and writing blogs. I embraced sedentary lifestyle that much that I haven’t updated my site for quite a while now. Believe me when I say “quite a while”, two months is an understatement and during those days Facebook, Instagram, twitter and snapchat were my best of friends.

KC– a friend of mine and content creator of ‘All About Cagayan de Oro’ pm-ed me on facebook to be her plus-one to an event. It’s not just a so-so meet & greet I tell you , but GIL MACAIBAY’s Strike a Pose 3. Who would say ‘no’ to a GIL MACAIBAY fashion show?

Gil Macaibay- one of Cagayan de Oro’s promising and premier haute couture just struck the runway with her (oh please! lemme use the ‘her’ there…) new pieces to commence her 2016 summer workshop last Saturday, 30th day of May 2016 at Rosario Pavilion Limketkai Center. The show kickstarted at exactly 6pm where it flaunted some of her season’s collections that include long dresses and suits that are usually worn to formal occasions and gatherings.

The plain, pastel colors, laces and prints which usually give an emotional effect to people depict a happy and romantic mood just perfect for weddings. The way I look at it, Gil was successful in playing with light and heavy materials.

I was so overwhelmed that the first thing that came out of my mouth when I meet her was “finally”. Of course, I didn’t let the time passed without telling her my thoughts about the event.
