AFTER almost three years since the pandemic, the weddings and events industry is back! Over 600 suppliers from all over the country came together for a night of boogie wonderland during the 9th Philippine Wedding Industry Ball held at Marquis Events Place in BGC (Taguig) last November 9 as organized by the Philippine Association of Wedding Planners.
Established in 2004, the prestigious Philippine Association of Wedding Planners is an organization of qualified wedding planners and coordinators pledged to uphold integrity and high standards of business ethics and advance the development of wedding planning business as a respected and honored profession.
And no star shone the brightest that night than Charles Montenegro of Cagayan de Oro City, owner of Charles Atelier Fashion House. Charles Montenegro started as a designer since 2011 at Louise until 2013. From 2014 to 2018, he was a freelance designer and by 2019, Charles decided to establish his own shop Charles-Atelier Fashion House.
Today, Charles-Atelier Fashion House is making gowns and suites for the whole wedding entourage and other formal occasions such as debuts, proms and other special functions on a made to order basis.
Charles-Atelier Fashion House is located at the ground level of Que Building, Corrales Ave., Cagayan de Oro City. You can reach them through 0915 733 4845.
