  • June 19, 2019

The theme of MEGA Equality Ball called for donning on metallic and high-shine formal style ensembles. Society graced the event with their own interpretation of the theme. While some turned attention to their gowns with sheer fabrics and sequins, others highlighted their stunning jewelry and accessories. Society revealed the designers of their gowns and suits in their Instagram posts. These snaps might give you ideas on what or who to wear for your next formal affair or evening gala.

Dani Barretto-Panlilio arrived at the ball with a subtle sparkle. Patricia Santos designed her gown that allowed Dani to look simple yet elegant with her baby bump. The young mom exuded radiance with diamond-studded earrings and necklace from JMA Jewelry.

John, the son of Ann Ong, designed her beautiful sheer olive green gown. She also wore her own jewelry creations. From the black onyx statement choker that adorned her neck to her salvage wood minaudière with a goldfish closure, Ann’s accessories completed her elegant look for the night.

Nikki Huang arrived at the ball wearing a jumpsuit Chris Nick designed. The beautiful jumpsuit blends deep blue and purple hues to create a royalty-look for the young Huang.

Mark Bumgarner designed the elegant gown of Heart Ongpauco-Escudero. The rose gold color perfectly followed the high shine theme of the ball, making Heart one of the best dressed in that night.

The highly successful doctors, Dr. Z Teo and Dra. Aivee Teo joined the celebration. Dra. Aivee dressed in Patricia Santos’ neutral gown paired it off with a pop of color from her bright orange clutch handcrafted by Lavender Rose. Paulo Lazaro added a shimmering ‘Z’ letter stitching that elevated with the deep blue color of Dr. Z’s suit.

Cristalle Belo looked sophisticated in her Hannah Kong gown stitched with silver sequins. The gown flared with a light peach fabric that added silhouette and softened the radiance of the sequins.

Tim Yap shined in a contrasting suit in peach and black colors designed by Christ Nick. The long silken fabric of the suit that can be twisted added a playful sophisticated yet lively vibe to Tim’s look.
