RYAN CHRIS Ethereal Bridal Collection Makes Wedding Fantasy a Reality

What is your dream wedding? It might be a wedding by the beach or a march down the aisle in a traditional church ceremony- so what’s your wedding fantasy?

Whatever it is, a dream wedding will come true if the bride looks elegantly radiant. After all, let’s admit it she is the ‘main attraction’ of any wedding event and wearing the best bridal gown will surely makes her a standout. 

This should also follow suit on her wedding entourage- they should look stunning too. And this is where RYANCHRIS is good at- he can make dream weddings come true!

Last October 5 at One Esplanade, Ryan Chris bridal collection took the runway by storm. Featured as one of the exhibitors at the posh bridal expo dubbed as Engaged: Bridal and Beauty Fashion Weekend Expo - Second Edition. 

Me at the red carpet! Making fantasies come true. 

Fashion designer Ryan Chris showed his creative flare in a whimsical bridal collection where a fantasy becomes a reality! 

ETHEREAL - The Tale of a Bridal Fantasy
e·the·re·al /əˈTHirēəl/ (adjective)
extremely delicate, divine and light in a way that seems too perfect for this world.

When you think about ethereal- you’ll immediately envision something divine and simply not of this world. This is the theme for the recent ensemble that RYANCHRIS presented at the bridal expo together with the students of his alma mater Tomas Earnshaw Elementary School.

Just think about your favorite fairy tale characters that will come to life with a twist of modern-day minimalism and impeccable artistry; “From a rebellious take in Ofrendas de Flores - R Y A N C H R I S will send us back to memory lane where everything is magical” shares Ms. Kitten Zapata Editor-In-Chief of Wedding Essentials, “and just like in every fairy tale, it all starts with a series of promiscuous misfortunes, but this should never stop us from dreaming and making these dreams a reality”, ends Zapata.

The uniquely planned concept for the Ryan Chris #ETHEREAL bridal show goes to prove that fantasies do come true. Featuring a diverse line-up of fashion models plus the grandiose display of creativity, at the show’s finale we will be reminded that behind each fantasy is ”e-THE-REAL”,  that we are in reality, and in reality dreams should be fulfilled, says Ryan Chris Baylen, Fashion Designer.

This Ryan Chris fashion show event definitely highlights the creative prowess of an imaginative designer and at the same time focused on giving back to the community. Proceeds from the event went to Tomas Earnshaw Elementary School for the improvement of classrooms that will benefit students.

Ryan Chris EtheREAL Bridal Fashion Show was a huge success and it was possible thru the support and partnership with AJCR Foundation | BEAUTY STUDIO - Hair, Nails, Brows, Lashes & Spa | BOBS JEROME | BOSLEY®?Professional Strength™?| CND™?| CJ Castañeda HMUA | Eiskin Laboratories Inc. | El Bottega All Day Breakfast Kitchen | Fullmakeover Professional Make-up & Hair | Gunita Studios | Hair and Make-up by Apol Alviar | Kris Laurence Make - up Artist | Mondes International Beauty Products Inc. | OÑEZatisfied HMUA | Ram Marcelo Photography | Ryan Chris Foundation | The Manila Grand Rentals | Thony Garcia Hair Stylist | Tomas Earnshaw Elementary School | VIDLENS Productions

Get the first dibs on bridal fashion and designer’s suits and gowns by following Ryan Chris on Facebook and RYANCHRIS on Instagram- see you soon on the next RYANCHRIS fashion event!

Ryan Chris really wowed me, and his bridal collection is a masterpiece dredged in whimsical ethereal beauty. I will one day wear a RYANCHRIS wedding gown. It is a fantasy for now but will be a reality soon- I swear- I DO!!!
