Style Origin 7: Cebu 2

So loving the landscaping of the Ayala Center here in Cebu... wished all the malls in Manila were the same.  There are greens everywhere, one can't help but have a feeling of being close to nature.  The author woke up early today and decided to take pictures of the area before the mall opens and avoid the maddening Sunday crowd.  Don't forget, it's the day of the show and with Rico Blanco playing, it's no doubt we'll be expecting a multitude.

Leading the lines.
Mall in the contemporary.

Green revolution.
Feast on chlorophyll.
Life in pattern.
Field of greens.
In the afternoon, Rico Blanco had sound check and with it came final rehearsal.  Everything was falling into place despite the semi-gloom doom weather.  Rain or shine the show must go on.  Racks of clothes from the brands participating starting coming in.  We had three tents beside the backstage--one for Rico and the band, the other two were both dressing rooms.

And after everything has been set, said and done... the rain stopped in Cebu, it's finally SHOWTIME!!!

A toast to show host/model Blinky de Leon.
Now that's what I call a massive crowd.
Ayala's wonder woman in the making, the sweet Mikmik Corvera!  We love you!!! 
Style Origin Cebu had the best crowd and every song Rico performed was super applauded.  The energy onstage, director's area and backstage was all about synergy.  Wouldn't mind doing the show all over again--this is style on a high note!  See you on our next leg this weekend and this time the team is off to Pampanga :-)
