Having indeed come a very long way, the Rustan’s Group of Companies in partnership with HSBC marked a milestone to celebrate 65 Facets of Extraordinary, a Sapphire Collection Cebu Fashion Premiere, which took place on the second level of Rustan’s Cebu. The SSI Group Inc. president Anton Huang, Dina Tantoco (Rustan’s marketing communications manager), Paolo Tantoco (Rustan’s administration manager) and Michael Huang (Rustan’s vice president for store planning and expansion), all flew in for this very special occasion.

Bringing out the best fashion brands since 1952 and to celebrate their 65th year in the industry, a line-up of the anniversary collection in shades of sapphire from private label brands included Ricardo Preto, U by Ricardo Preto, Oleg Cassino, Jill by Jojie Lloren, Criselda Lontok, Lady Rustan, Kiddos, Rustans Jr. and Rustanette, was brought to life on the catwalk.

“Rustan’s has come a long way. Through 65 years, it has been changing, evolving and expanding. Yet, it remains true to its mission of bringing the best brands from all over the world to the Filipino and showcasing the best of the Filipino to the rest of the world. When we decided to open here in Cebu back in 1981, we had a vision of the great potential and possibilities the city represented. Now a bustling metropolis, a major tourism hub and one of the most progressive cities in the country, we are proud to be one of the pioneering retailers here in Cebu. It was an alluring promise of progress and quality. We are gratified that this vision has found its fulfillment,” shares Anton Huang.

Rustan’s is located in Ayala Center Cebu.
