Rustan's Makati

Cheery clowns and jesters set the joyful tone for the fashion festivities of the Amore! Italian Festival as everyone gathered at Rustan's to witness Stile!. The fashion showcase served as the first among several events for the festival, starting with a preview of the most luxurious brands from Italy—Fratelli Rossetti, Furla, Fendi, Emilio Pucci and Tod's to name a few.

A showcase of Salvatore Ferragamo's skyhigh platform pumps, rose-accented gloves, and luxe leather totes wowed diplomats and fashionistas alike. A murmur of appreciation also ran through the ladies in the crowd as the trademark colorful prints of Emilio Pucci appeared on the runway, while the men took note of Armani Exchange, and Ermenegildo Zegna. The best Italian jewels also went on display with the Parentesi Cocktail collection of Bvlgari.

But of course, the show didn't stop at eye candy. Fragrances like Gucci, Aqua Di Genova, Versace, Moschino gave everyone a whiff of the good life in Italy. To see more from the kick-off event of the Italian Festival, click on!
