Gear and Glam

It was a fun way of killing time for our next assignment as we crashed our way (well, not quite literally, hehe) to the Gear and Glam Party at the Northwing of SM City Cebu last Thursday night. The über hip gathering was graced by the Fashion Council of Cebu, car enthusiasts and the beauteous socialites of this chosen island.
Enjoy the photos (though I wish we were able to bring a better camera)! ;)

THE CARS AND FASHION
The rare car collections of PACE – Performance and Classic Car Enthusiasts Cebu – took center stage and we oohed and aahed after every car has made its entrance. A select group of Cebuano designers showcased their wonderful collections to match the cars’ personalities.

THE MEN
the men
No less than men of high calibers lent their toys for this one-of-a-kind event.

THE DESIGNERS
the designers
The designs are as equally awe-inspiring as the names behind them.

THE STORY
We stopped by SM to hang out before we had to meet a bigger group for a special assignment that night when we got lucky to get wind of this special event. We got even luckier as we were able to squeeze through the black and white drapes and get really close to the center stage (good thing the security guys didn’t ask us to leave..hehe) It was so much fun crashing that party. ^_^
