‘The fashion designer and bride’s visions should be aligned when it comes to how the gown looks’
Timeless, elegant, and intricate–these are the words that come to mind when you first lay your eyes on GEO + Me’s Bridal Collection. Medy Magsipoc, the designer behind the brand, says this is exactly the kind of bridal gowns she enjoys creating. “I tend to design timeless looks by creating classic details and the romantic look with remarkably elegant gowns.” From the detailed bodice to the full skirts, brides will surely feel like royalty or a celebrity in Medy’s creations.
The bride’s big moment of walking down the altar is Medy’s favorite as well, but she also cites one more proof that she’s done her job: when brides twirl and take selfies in their gown. “It is a sign that she is satisfied and beautifully confident in my creation.”
Below, Medy tells Inspirations.ph how she inherited a love for fashion and weddings, and how she ensures that her brides and grooms feel the best on their big day.
What got you interested in fashion/weddings?
I became interested in fashion and weddings because of my parents’ influence. Seeing them making some wedding gowns inspired me that someday I’ll be able to make one too. The wedding day is a very special occasion for every woman. To make this more memorable for her, a dream wedding gown of her choice is a must. As a fashion designer, I’m here to help them fulfilling their dream of having a memorable one.

What do you enjoy most about being a fashion designer for weddings?
I really enjoy when I see my bride smiling, twirling and taking selfies because it is a sign that she is satisfied and beautifully confident in my creation.
When it comes to creative process or design process, how do you start creating for your clients?
The fashion designer and bride’s vision should be aligned when it comes to how the gown should look. When it comes to my creation process, I always consider the personality of my client, the time of the day the wedding will happen, and then I sketch designs for her (three sketches, so she can choose among them). I am committed in all my designs. I like the elaborate beaded details. It is important is the wedding dress fits the client well.
Any tips for brides and groom when it comes to creating their wedding wear?
A wedding is a celebration of love between two people and every single detail of it should be meticulously scrutinized. Custom-fit wedding wear is one of the essentials for every bride and groom-to-be to be. My tip is that for every couple to wear gowns and suits which reflect their personality and signifies who they are for that special moment.
What would you say is your favorite moment in weddings?
On your wedding day, there are a lot of great moments that will happen. Lots of emotions will come out. My most favorite part about weddings is each time I see my bride walking down the aisle and seeing her husband-to-be waiting at the altar. It is a moment when I can feel their love for each other. It is also a fulfillment on my part every time the wedding guests give praises and admiration to my creation.
