There’s a new Giordano Concepts store in town and it’s at the recently launched wing of Megamall–the Mega Fashion Hall. Last week, I was fortunate enough to attend the well-loved apparel brand’s grand opening as one of its style icons, along with my fellow bloggers, celebrities and models. Champagne, delectable treats, amazing styling, easy shopping and lots of laughter ensued–all of which were the key ingredients to making the night truly memorable. Scroll away to read more about my experience!
The early bird style icons–Laureen, Tweetie, Tim, yours truly and Patricia. We were all asked to come in something Victorian-inspired. It can be a hat, an accessory, a top, a lace dress…anything! I opted for a statement necklace.
Giordano Concepts has clothes for both men and women. I shopped at both actually, these plaid buttondowns for men included. I just love how menswear fits women. Effortless.
Preview Magazine collaborated with Giordano Concepts that night which is why most of their editors were present. Here’s Laureen and I with a woman we both look up to, Preview’s editor-in-chief Pauline.
Look what we have here! Find me!
The Preview team’s Pauline, Daryl and Isha having a lovely time with style icon, beauty queen Venus Raj.
As I’ve mentioned, Preview collaborated with Giordano Concepts for its opening. It’s part of what made the event extra special. All of us style icons were styled on the spot by the Preview team. Here’s creative genius, Vince Uy, making sure we get the best items!

Yours truly in Giordano Concepts. I love my look! So minimal, easy and laidback, which for me captured the true aesthetic of Giordano Concepts. You might be wondering why I’m posing my heart away here. After our styling session, each style icon was asked to pose for the camera for a special editorial to be published on Preview Magazine. Photographer Roy Macam was on standby to take our portraits at a makeshift studio set up inside the store. I’m so curious how our photos turned out!
Once I was done with the shoot, of course I had to squeeze in a little shopping. Okay, fine. maybe not a little, more like a lot! LOL!
Style icon, model Kelly Misa, also did some shopping! See, I wasn’t the only one who caught the shopping bug!
What do you think of our Giordano Concepts outfits? Aside from my State Champ sweater, I got that polka dot sweater too! More detailed shots of my outfit below.
