Dominiquetiu 's Thoughts:

So my boyfriend and I attended our good friend, Kato Chua’s wedding last weekend at the Sofitel Plaza Hotel. It was one of the most beautiful Fall weddings I’ve witnessed. It was truly an honor to be part of it somehow. Of course, every single detail was ironed out to perfection, but what was inspiring was the blatant display and celebration of love between Kato (currently Honeymooning in Maldives) and her husband Tof.


Because I wanted to pay my respects to such a lovely couple (not in a morbid sense), I made an effort to really dress up. I had this beautiful architectural olive green organza masterpiece made by my best friend and Parson’s School of Design Alumna Julianne Syjuco. I’ve known Jules since we were both rocking Billabong skirts during college days and I’ve aways been privy of her fashion genius–with a jewelry designer for a mom and brother, it’s encoded in her genes! If there’s anyone who knows my aesthetic and fashion preferences like the back of her hand, it’s Jules.


If there’s anything I can commend Jules and I’ve told her this numerous times (because I’m a real friend and I don’t lie), it’s that she has fine and exquisite taste. It is physically impossible for Jules to create a gown that doesn’t look expensive–it’s just how she is and I think it’s a rare gift for a designer to have. I’ve had gowns designed by local designers and I can vouch for her and say that her pieces are at par with the ones you see on the runway. Plus, she’s very particular with the female physique–she can hide flaws and accentuate all your best features! I swear, her dress made me lose 5 lbs in an instant!
