For two days, on Wednesday and Thursday, September 5 and 6, the historic Rizal Library Building in Osmena Boulevard at the heart of Cebu City, will be transformed into a hub of activities as Zee Lifestyle magazine celebrates its September Issue with Zee Fashion Forward, a series of events all centered on fashionable pursuits.
Fun shopping is the heart of Fashion Finds at the Rizal Library Ballroom, where branded pieces from some of the most fashionable personalities in Cebu will go on sale. With clothes, sunglasses, signature handbags and shoes from various eras, Fashion Finds gives shoppers the chance to breathe new life into old favorites. Part of the proceeds from the two-day sale will benefit the Rizal Library, the Beautiful Cebu Movement Foundation and other charities, making retail therapy an indulgence that isn’t so guilty.
Zee Lifestyle magazine have been collecting these items and the three ladies from the Wicked Sisters are curating them to a chic rummage sale for Cebu’s stylish set. The inventory includes dresses from Vera Wang, Armani, BCBG, Diane Von Furstenberg and blouses from Prada and Jil Sander, shoes from Tod’s and Gucci bags, Marni fashion accessories, and sunglasses from Gucci, Dior, Tom Ford and many more.
Hot collections from Cebu’s fashion sources like Gladys Young, Loida Montesclaros, Cherie Miller, Noreen Tseng, Rere Dakay and Butch Carungay’s Avatar will also be on sale. For refreshments, a bistro-café by David’s Restaurant will be onsite for shoppers who need to take a breather. Other activities include a movie screening from Alliance Francaise where viewers can have open discussion over Martini and popcorn, as well as Jewelmer’s Pearl Talks over high tea.
The two-day event is made possible by Tresemme and Samsung, and is open to the public from 10am to 6pm on September 5 and 6. Purchase of a Zee Lifestyle magazine on-site serves as the entrance fee, which will include access to the Zee Fashion Finds, and refreshments, as well as the exhibit at the Rizal Library Museum featuring Furne One’s work and gown entries from Zee Lifestyle’s Shades of Grès design competition. From 10am to 1pm, students can enter the fair for free upon presentation of a valid school ID.
