JC Buendia 25th Anniversary Fashion Gala

image

As promised, here are photos of JC Buendia’s 25th!

As much as I tried to keep you updated with photos from my camera phone (it was the only thing that could fit my clutch that night), these photos are way better. You can really appreciate every design.

Needless to say, JC Buendia is a fashion genius. His designs are effortless, timeless and oh so chic. Thanks to photographer Daniel Tan, Visions & Expressions and TRESemme for the photos.

The gala show was held at the Marriot Hotel Manila.

image

It was hosted by Karen Pamintuan.

The show was sponsored by LG. These JC Buendia designs were inspired by the brand.

image

And now, the show begins.

image

For this gala show, JC Buendia was inspired by classic Hollywood films. This chic white number looks like it came straight out of a Grace Kelly movie.

image

A lovely black version comes out right after.

image

He certainly found a love for tulle, as we can see with this pretty sheer top.

image

Lace is all the embellishment you’ll need with this outfit.

image

A closer shot. Love the details of this.

image

Amazing detail!

image

This reminded me of modern-day barong. It looked so good with this ballgown skirt.

image

More dreamy tulle. The length is so old Hollywood.

image

The drop-waist is very 1920’s. Love his take on this.

image

JC shows us that the wide-length pant is a fitting option for a formal event.

image

Love the hair and makeup. TRESemme did an amazing job with the hair.

image

Another classy black and white ensemble.

image

This style is truly enduring and classic.

image

Yellow and gray seems to be another favorite of JC’s. This skirt is so pretty.

image

Paring gray on gray looks quite modern.

image

JC’s take on casual wear is still very streamlined.

image

Loving this top. It looks very chic and versatile.

image

These attachable collars are adorable. And so is this mid-length skirt.

image

JC makes sparkly short shorts look very classy.

image

The yellow and gray collection.

image

Men’s fashion. Don’t they look sharp?

image

Here’s a properly tailored suit.

image

That yellow collar makes a statement.

image

Love this. A great-looking tuxedo for a black-tie event.

image

This textured jacket is love.

image

A structured coat that is also good enough to wear as a dress.

image

Love this combination.

image

Up close. Every inch is perfection.

image

Another barong-inspired top.

image

This multi-paneled skirt has interesting detail.

image

Another version of the textured coat we saw earlier.

image

JC’s designs always look so elegant and proper.

image

Notice the back detail on this skirt.

image

Laser-cut sleeves make an amazing detail for this ensemble.

image

Classic black dress with a huge ribbon detail.

image

This long coat is so sleek and pretty.

image

This button-down dress reminds me of a chic trench coat.

image

This yellow sparkly gown looks amazing.

image

This black dress was my absolute favorite. It is so Audrey Hepburn!

image

Impeccable detail and design.

image

The backless design looks stunning.

image

This is another favorite of mine. What an amazing formal coat!

image

And here is the man of the hour: JC Buendia who came out riding a bicycle.

image

So sweet: he kisses his mom.

image

And off he goes. Here’s to another 25 years in the fashion industry.

Congratulations JC Buendia, and kudos to Metro Society for an amazing show.
