Also featured in the show were makeup artist Koylee Ocaya, product designers Chris Gomez and Patrick Gabutina, artists Cocoy Bajuyo and Michael Bacol; and photographers Henry de Guzman, Gabb Tapic and Luke Vestal.

“I usually hold one intimate fashion show each year. But I also present my bridal collection and my winter collection during the annual Mindanao Fashion Summit which is held every August online,” Soriano said.

Prior to the entering the fashion industry, Angela worked as operations manager of a hotel for about 12 years. Little by little, a lot of people got to see her collection, both locally and abroad.

Today, Angela Soriano maintains her own studio at the second level of EchoStore along Aguinaldo St. She can also be reached in her social media pages.

Meanwhile, one of Angela’s best buds also presented his own collections during the event.

Dirkie Dabbay started his stint in the fashion industry first as a stylist and makeup artist from 2006 to 2009.

But prior to that, he already enrolled in a two-year fashion course at the prestigious La Salle College International.

In 2016, Dirkie decided to launch his own collection of resort wear, men’s apparel and tailored pieces for women as a home-based couturier right here in Cagayan de Oro City.
