As Cebu awaits Inquirer Lifestyle’s Face-Off Bridal Collection, a fashion show and red-carpet event to be held on July 20 at Radisson Blu that’s shaping up as the biggest fashion affair this city will see this year, we’ve decided to celebrate Cebu fashion not through the talents that design the clothes, but through the stylish people who do those clothes justice.
