Filipino fashion designer Pablo Cabahug, whose well-trained sartorial eye and mastery of bringing easy-lux visions to life have earned him stripes in the industry, looks back to a memorable decade with a special show.
On Nov. 4, Cabahug is ringing in his 10th year with a celebratory benefit dinner and gala show for his new collection Rayons Du Soleil (Rays of the Sun) at the PICC Forum.
The 50-piece collection, the designer said, is something of a love letter to his colorful experiences in the industry that has shaped the designer he has become today. Cabahug revisits and reimagines his favorite creations.
“I wanted to revisit my most memorable collections, and reimagine them with a romantic feel and the ease of different hues and emotions from sunrise to sunset,” he says.
This imagery of the sun—from rising to its seat in the sky, to its return to rest at the end of the day—is symbolic of life’s never-ending opportunities. “To fall and rise again, to live another day and start anew,” the designer explains.
Taking pages from his past collections and reworking them to fit the men and women of today, Cabahug’s design DNA will run strong in the new collection: easy luxury, flattering lines to compliment the woman’s body, a touch of menswear. It’s the classic Pablo Cabahug aesthetic––made fresher and more exciting with modern updates and new silhouettes.
The benefit dinner, which will set the scene for Rayons Du Soleil’s launch, will benefit the designer’s alma mater, Colegio de San Juan Letran, funding the construction of the Letran Quadricentennial Building.
Some of the personalities who will walk the runway on Nov. 4 are Letran alumni, including former senator Freddy Webb, TV director Lauren Dyogi, and former PBA Star Kerby Raymundo.
“A portion of the [collection’s] sales will be donated to the Letran scholarship, so we can continue to give back even after the show is over,” adds Cabahug.
