With a “Confidence to Bloom” theme, the event became a paradise of vibrant, blooming flowers from the bridgeway leading to the main ballroom. Not missing the chance to showcase her modern take on the Filipiniana for the night’s attire, Dr. Aivee Teo donned a sleeveless floor-length dress with a floral sheer cover-up top. Completing her look with an updo hairstyle and side-swept bangs, Dr. Aivee was a sight to behold. Her husband, Dr. Z, matched her signature looks with his patterned barong and some cool shades to add a refreshing flair to his fit. 

The Aivee brand’s married couple were joined and supported by actress Yassi Pressman, social media personality and entrepreneur Cat Arambulo-Antonio, multi-hyphenate Ferdi Salvador, and of course, their Aivee doctors and managers. 

Shining like the stars

The program, hosted by Issa Litton, was made to honor industry doctors.

Similar to flowers, beauty is in all of us, no matter the size, color or shape. When flowers are tended to, it will bloom, no matter how many weeds surround it. With the skilled hands of beauty experts, such as The Aivee Clinic’s founding couple, the confidence to bloom is one treatment away.
