This is it! The final event of the year for TRESemme. Fashion’s Finest 2012 is the culminating event for the brand as a way to thank everyone for the huge amount of support and love they’ve been shown throughout the year. And there’s really no better way to show gratitude than through a thanksgiving dinner.
And this time around, the TRESemme Style Team (composed of me, Liz Uy, Raymond Gutierrez, Jing Monis, Tinette Ozamis-Puyat and Victor Ortega) helped plan the event. This really doesn’t happen very often, but Unilever invited all of us to sit in at their meeting where we were free to share our input on how to set up the dinner. It felt great to have our opinions heard and not just have to show up that night.
What a night it was! So many of our friends came out to celebrate with us. The party was overflowing with champagne, delicious food and outstanding music—it was such an amazing way to end the year!
Of course, an hour before the event I was already backstage checking out what was going on. I surveyed the gowns the models were going to wear for the fashion show and found the designs made by top designers JC Buendia, Francis Libiran, Jun Escario and Furne One.
Before dinner was cocktails (and loads of it). So happy many of my friends (especially my husband) were able to come and support me for the event. And after a lot of mingling (and drinking), dinner was served! This was probably my favorite part. The food was sooooo good!
Beautiful Apples Aberin, who is Unilever’s PR Head for Personal Care, welcomed us.
TRESemme Brand Manager Ann Esteves thanks everyone for being at the event.
Soon after, the TRESemme Style Team was introduced one-by-one, starting with me. I was praying I wouldn’t fall down these stairs haha!
Once we were all introduced, everyone got settled into their seats for the fashion show. If you’ve been following my blog ever since, you’d notice that these designs were used for at the gala shows of JC Buendia, Jun Escario, Francis Libiran and Furne One.
