Hi everyone! I am sure you all had a fun-filled Sinulog experience, not like me because I have been working during Sinulog. What?? Seriously?? Yeah, I am kinda KJ with this because I really don’t like crowded places and street parties, but I surely had fun during Cut and Style 2016 Fashion Show. It made me feel like I had a real Sinulog experience.
This year is Islands Souvinirs’ third year for Cut and Style and every year they always come up with new idea and new trend to give Cebuanos an unforgettable Sinulog experience. This year is a year for Pop Art that revolves around the playful, vibrant and colorful aesthetic, paying homage to an iconic art movement that brings creativity and culture straight to the people.
