Party dresses don’t have to be expensive
Posted on

I know prom season is over.
I don’t have daughters, so I don’t have to fuss about prom dresses. But I’ve been my friends’ daughters, my niece, all over Instagram and Facebook. I know prom dresses are slim pickings here and can be very expensive.
But with Internet, Googling skills, and Johnny Air, it is easy to find good dresses at reasonable prices.
Take H&M’s recently launched Conscious Exclusive, a partywear collection made from more sustainable materials, like organic cotton, recycled polyester, recycled polyamide and Tencel.
The collection features clothing and accessories for both men and women, and is part of H&M’s Conscious work to offer more sustainable fashion.

Presented in Manila by Visa, Dirty Dancing—The Classic Story On Stage is written by Eleanor Bergstein, script writer and co-producer of the phenomenally successful 1987 movie.
The production features all the characters and original dialogue with some extra scenes added in, plus dance sequences and brand new choreography that all come alive on stage.

Dirty Dancing 5

It’s the Summer of 1963, and 17-year-old Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman is about to learn some major lessons in life as well as a thing or two about dancing.
On holiday at a resort called Kellerman’s with her older sister and parents, Baby shows little interest in the resort activities, and discovers her own entertainment when she stumbles upon the staff quarters where an all-night dance party is in full swing.

Dirty Dancing 3

She is mesmerized by the underworld of young men and women who spend their free time dancing, and Baby can’t wait to be part of the scene—especially when she catches sight of Johnny Castle the resort dance instructor.
Baby’s life is about to change forever as she is thrown into the deep end as Johnny’s leading lady, both on-stage and off, with breath-taking consequences.

Dirty Dancing—The Classic Story On Stage in Manila is produced by Pieter Toerien, Hazel Feldman, Karl Sydow, Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, David Atkins Enterprises and Joye Entertainment, Hi-Definition Radio, Inc. and Concertus in association with Lionsgate and Magic Hour Productions.
The show is presented by VISA with Diamond Hotel, OOCL as the official ocean carrier, and media partners:
2nd Avenue, ETC, Jack TV, Blink Cinema, Philippine Star, Philippine Daily Inquirer, BusinessWorld, Radio High 105.9, Crossover 105.1, 99.5 Play FM, ABS-CBN, Ayala Malls and Ayala Cinemas.
