There’s sunshine after the rain (typhoon Mario took Metro Manila by surprise). This is true for Theresa Leung, Claudine de Leon, Noelle Hilario (Advertising Rockstars of Leung de Leon Marketing and chief curators) and guests of the Rooftop Rendezvous Shopping Soiree by RR Lifestyle Events, held at the Century City Mall Event Center on Saturday, September 24, 2014. The place was buzzing all day with fashionistas, foodies and home decorating aficionados that flocked to their favorite brands’ booths.
Fashion model Tweetie de Leon-Gonzalez of TdLG launched her new collection of accessories at the event, her gold bangles and drop earrings were scene-stealers along with her signature pieces of unique necklaces made with wood and semi precious stones. Award-winning jewelry designer, Ann Ong, showcased her bold gold-dipped metal pieces while Stockton Row featured fun pieces that one can mix and match. Seasons Collection had gold pendants that are ideal for gifting a godson or goddaughter and pearl accessories for keeps. Beach lovers were happy to see stylish resort, swim and surf essentials from Brown Belly, Quiver, Coast Thru Life, and sunnies from Proof Eyewear. Functionality and design were features of light, comfortable and stylish dresses of Exhale Manila that were loved by practical fashionistas while Astrid by John Paras had chic dresses that can be worn from day to night. MCV Designs had an array of fans and bags made using local techniques and products.
The men fled to Fledge Clothing for button-down collared shirts with unique patterns and Obbo for fun printed sports socks. Carabao workshop showcased Filipino craftsmanship with shoes and bags that are made from Carabao leather both for men and women while Halo + Halo made recycling fashionable with their everyday and travel bags.
Foodies got their sweet fix from Coco Dolce Chocolates made with premium local cacao from Mindanao using only organic coconut sugar, cream based dips & pate from Dibs and with something better than a brownie from Bucky’s. The Daily Jusa was essential to keeping the guests hydrated and Vino2Go had the perfect wine and beer glasses for wanderlusts.
The Wareshop and Crafthsmith Living’s booths were aptly the most decorated with one of a kind pieces and trinkets for the home. Amber Lights Laguna candles are made from soy that doesn’t leave residues and completely burns, which made them a hit to the home aficionados.
Those that want to make a great impression had personalized stamps and embossers made from The Best Impressions. Jet setters adored and purchased travel essentials from Anma Lifestyle while moms fell in love with baby carries from Saya. Fille et Fils provided aromatherapy using natural and pure essential oils along with their fresh and clean eau de toilette line. De Boer Organiques showcased their all-natural home and body care products that triggered some giggles from happy shoppers.
Guests were delighted to hear great OPM music from the Philippines’ King of RnB, JayR with SCENT-sational Mica Javier (who launched MNL her new line of fragrances) and the rest of the Homeworkz’ artists – Kley, Kat Lopez and Q York. Shoppers were spoiled with goodies from Belo Essentials SunExpert, Strip, Obbo Socks and free coffee from Kape Ko.
