To celebrate 10 years of fashioning sartorial masterpieces, renowned Filipino fashion designer Pablo Cabahug will hold a celebratory benefit dinner and gala show for his new collection Rayons du Soleil (Rays of the Sun) on 4 November at the PICC Forum.
Rayons du Soleil is a 50-piece collection taken from the book of his previous designs and is modified to fit into the latest fashion trends.
The collection is also a love story about his colorful experiences in the industry that shaped him into the great artist he is today. He reminisces about his past and welcomes a more fruitful future through the celebration of this milestone.
“I wanted to revisit my most memorable collections and reimagine them with a romantic feel and the ease of different hues and emotions from sunrise to sunset; to fall and rise again; to live another day and start anew,” Pablo shares.
Wanting to give back to a place that also helped him become the person that he is, the benefit dinner will be a charitable affair for Pablo’s alma mater, Colegio de San Juan de Letran (CSJL).
A portion of the sales will be donated to the educational institution’s scholarship program and will help fund the construction of the Letran Quadricentennial Building which is a commemorative piece of the Colegio’s 400 years of providing academic excellence.
“I just feel so blessed. I think nilatag ni God lahat ng mangyayari sakin para maging kung sino man ako ngayon (I think God laid out His plans for me so I would be who I am today). And I think it’s about giving back,” the former Letranite shared.
During the press conference last 3 September at the Museo de Intramuros, he showcased eight designs from his 50-piece collection.
People can expect 45 more fresh designs and modern silhouettes — the classic Cabahug aesthetic on 4 November.
