Bristish Fashion Premier

DEBUTING in this Southern city, UK retail giant Debenhams drew the drapes to unveil the latest fashion of the season housed in the very first Debenhams store established outside of the country’s capital city.

Promising to make Davao more fabulous, Rustan Specialty Concepts, Inc. (RSCI), the official franchise holder of Debenhams, hosted a chic gathering and presented the latest addition to the growing family of this British top retail chain around the globe.

Braving the sudden stormy downpour and heavy traffic, the city’s well-heeled and fashion trendsetters made their way to the unveiling of Debenhams. It was the grandest and most exciting  store launching to happen in Abreeza Mall and Davao by far.

Host Anton Huang, Rustan’s Group of Companies Executive Vice-President, and the company’s board of directors, Ambassador Bienvenido Tantoco Sr., Maritess Tantoco-Enriquez, Marilen Tantoco-Valbuena, along with Debenhams UK executives Peter King and Alun Hughes, welcomed the Dabawenyos and their guests-of-honor, Vice-Mayor Rody Duterte, Congressman Anton Lagdameo and the Floirendo family, Nenita Floirendo, Antonio Lagdameo, Sr. and Linda Floirendo-Lagdameo, Maricris Floirendo-Brias, Ricardo Floirendo and Vincent Floirendo, to this stylish affair.
