It's a new year and a great time to start something totally fresh. Last week, Preview held its very first #PreviewBestDressedBrunch (and Preview Girls Club meet!) at Adaäm & Yves Organic Bistro, located at the ground floor of Icon Plaza, 25th Street Corner 5th Avenue, in BGC. Present at this intimate affair were eight out of our 10 best dressed girls of 2015.
Our Editor-in-Chief, Isha Valles, noted, "We usually celebrate our Best Dressed List at the Preview Ball. This time around, we felt it would be nice to have an intimate get-together where we could all talk and get to know each other."
It was, after all, the first time the girls actually got to interact in real life and not just via stalking each other's IG accounts. There was Yessa Yu talking about fitness with Chi Gibbs, the exercise phobe. Melissa Gatchalian, Mavis Fuentebella and Malou Romero mused over their caricatures by Tom Bucag, and then our Fashion Director Daryl Chang had a nice little chat with Loralee Soong and Eloise Alba-Carballo by the cocktail area before brunch.
Even the fashion game was so diverse that morning with Monika Abad in Issey Miyake, Chi in her own Neon Island creation, and Loralee sporting her Aranaz clutch.
It's only the first of the many meet-ups that we have planned for the Preview Girls Club (more on that soon, we promise!), but here are some of our favorite IG posts from this super chic brunch:

What an #ImAPreviewGirl does ninety-percent of the time at any social gathering... Yup, you guessed it!
