Anthony Ramirez opened the show with a series of light and breezy white tulle dresses embroidered with royal blue, fuchsia, white, and gold details.

Aztec Barba sticked to one color palette: an elegant mauve, seen in various cocktail dresses. She also created unique boleros to complete the looks.

Delby Bragais created menswear-inspired ladies wear, with classic and professional-looking double-breasted gowns, blazers, pencil skirts, and sexy corseted dresses making a statement on the runway.

Julius Tarog also took menswear to another level, giving it sexy definition for women, as seen on neutral and black blazers, pants, and pencil skirts complemented by mesh tops.

Melvin Lachica's gold and black jersey dresses and stiff satin pieces provide inspiration for head-turning outfits.

Nolie Vineza’s zebra-print pieces were given a Pinoy flavor with the use of pina and abaca fabrics as cover-ups.

Pablo Cabahug's sophisticated jumpsuits and dresses with free-flowing mesh trains give off a modern princess vibe.

Popoy Barba's creations certainly left a lasting impression, with their intricately beaded belts and bold necklines. His rather simple cobalt and violet dresses and evening gowns were made more elegant with big jeweled accents.

Roel Rosal's take on graphic prints was kept subtle with the use of black backgrounds and small fringes.

Roland Lirio's black and white creations may look basic, but the paint-splatter pattern on the pencil skirts, blouses, and dresses gave the monochromatic collection an edge.

Ronaldo Arnaldo created pieces with a more structured silhouette, but added drama through puffed-sleeved blouses and cap-sleeved dresses.

Santi Obcena created a collection of high-waisted, loose jersey pants and flowy jersey dresses, all of which are great for attending beach weddings.

Tina Daniac played with bright colors by embellishing her flowy black mesh dresses with yellow, orange, blue, and pink beads.

Yvonne Quisumbing closed the show with her classic silver and black structured blouses and layered pieces.
