THE Gibi Shoes Mini Show on Saturday at J Centre Mall featured celebrities Xian Lim, Nadine Samonte and Ella Cruz.
Curious about what Gibi pairs fit them well? Here’s a quick chitchat with the brand ambassadors:
Sun.Star Cebu (SSC): What type of (Gibi) shoes do you usually prefer?
Xian Lim (XL): The everyday pair for me would be loafers. I also like boots and those with colors and hand-crafted styles. Trending din kasi ang mga ‘yon ngayon.
Nadine Samonte (NS): I go for simple shoes especially flats. But if the event calls for it then of course I have to wear what’s proper. Example, heels for meetings.
What’s good to know though is that Gibi has a lineup of shoes that suits the needs of the market. And they have cute and bubbly designs too!
Ella Cruz (EC): My choice also depends on the occasion. But I love flats and heels.
SSC: May we know how many pairs of Gibi shoes do you have in your closet?
XL: Gibi stands out. I really don’t count but there’s a lot.
NS: Currently, mine must have been around 200 already.
EC: I also don’t count but I would say I already have a bulk, too.
SSC: How would you describe your experience with the shoe brand?
XL: Caring and supportive. Gibi really got me in my almost two years of promoting the brand. I appreciate the trust.
NS: Gibi is family. I was already with them prior to becoming a celebrity. It’s been 10 years and counting. I should say I’m “glued” to the brand because of the bond among us. I love Gibi.
EC: Gibi is like a “fairy god mother” to me. I’ve been endorsing for them for five years now and the brand made some of my dreams come true. Kumalat na mukha ko sa Edsa dahil sa billboards nila sa akin. Nakakatuwa talaga. (Laughing).
