Gillian’s fashion sense.

Gillian would say that her style is more on Urban Eclectic. “I guess you can say it’s a contradiction,” she says. “I like playing with feminine pieces and adding a masculine touch to them. It’s highly inspired by clean straight lines and sometimes a touch of color or accessory. I play a lot with proportion since for me fashion is architecture and proportion is everything.”
Gillian’s tips and tricks to aspiring Cebuana fashionistas

  • “Proportion is everything” – For me, it’s always best to make the clothes fit you.. not the other way around. So play a lot with proportions and make them work around you. Just because it’s in trend doesn’t mean you have to wear it exactly as it’s seen on the runway!
  • Always wear what you want and don’t let other people dictate your style.
  • Take inspiration from others, copying is just tacky.
  • As much as possible don’t pay attention to tags. Elevating the look is all that matters no matter what brand.
