Last March 15, the Peninsula Manila’s Salon de Ning was transformed into Swatchville, as each room was decorated to complement the latest Swatch collections.
Dressed just like French fine artist Fafi, Alodia Gosiengfiao held court in a room illuminated with blacklights and fluorescent doodles.
Another room highlighted the Dragon Swatch, in commemoration of Chinese New Year
This is where guests, including Anne Curtis, had their fortunes told
A third room was decked in black and white, just like the new Lorenzo Petrantoni Swatches
A fourth room in gold was inspired by the Swatch Chrono Golden Block Collection.
Myx Awards’ Best New Artist, Zia Quizon opened with an apt song—Cyndi Lauper’s Time After Time, accompanied by Robby Mananquil on guitar.
Wearing Petrantoni Swatches, Christian Bautista sang a duet with girlfriend Carla Dunareanu.
Chris Tiu wore the 1st prize entry of the 7th Annual Chinese New Year Art Competition of the Philippine Star and Swatch.
Guest enjoyed champagne, wine, and halo-halo lambanog with salmon burgers topped with little Philippine Star flags, beef burgers with XO sauce from the Peninsula Hong Kong, crab caviar beggars’ purses, Aussie blue cheese and truffle honey on walnut toast with Peninsula Hong Kong’s Spring Moon walnuts, Peking duck salad on crispy wontons, foie gras pot stickers, gold-dusted beef samosas, Shanghai noodles, and baked Alaska.
Thank you, Tita Virgie!
