A fashion show highlighting eco-chic collections from Cebuano designers made Illuminated 3 different from several Earth Hour celebrations happening simultaneously all over the world. Patrons who bought their tickets at 500 each gets to have an Earth Hour t-shirt and a lantern for Shangrila Cebu’s lighting ceremony on the helipad when the lights turned off at exactly 830pm.
Proceeds of the tickets went to Hands of Mercy. Djs from Shangri-la, the Penthouse, Loft, and Marvin Evangelista each took turns spinning music that kept the crowd going till early Sunday morning. Shangri-la definitely knew how to switch off in style.
