Freeze | Alfonso “Boy” Guino-o at IMS

DAVAO City’s esteemed fashion designer Alfonso “Tito Boy” Guino-o graced the launching of the International Management School (IMS), the latest addition to the JIB International Schools family, along De Jesus Street on April 11, 2018. His Mindanao Private Collection found a home in a room at the fourth floor of IMS.

Pardon the cliché “cool, calm, and collected” but Tito Boy did exude a relaxed aura like a Jedi master of sort throughout the event. After an audio-visual presentation of the new school, Tito Boy’s video was shown to give the audience a rare glimpse of the Datu Bago awardee’s mind. The millennial terms “lodi, werpa, and petmalu” apply to describe his personality. He advised young designers not to follow what he has done but work on their own concepts and focus to prove their worth.

Students dressed up like flight attendants – along with mother and daughter tandem Joji Ilagan Bian and Nicole Hao Bian – led the guests to a tour of IMS facilities. They showed a mock airplane, airport, wine tasting room, and other spectacular things to train the students well to hit the ground running after graduation. Each color schemed floor offers something unique – including Alfonso Guino-o’s ethnic-inspired clothes and jewelry at the fourth floor.
