Upon entering the Manila House Private Members Club, guests were greeted with an extravagant set up of red roses. Cris Albert celebrated her birthday with good friend Tina Cuevas in an elegant dinner. In attendance were Tessa Prieto Valdes, Tim Yap, and Rajo Laurel. It was a night celebrating the beautiful and meaningful lives of these lovely women.
A lovely dinner
The lavish floral arrangements of Robert Blancaflor delighted the guests. For the night’s celebration, lush bouquets of red and pink roses and tall crimson candles dominated the room. The red hues reflected the strength, passion, and love of Cris and Tina for their businesses. Hanging high from the ceiling are hundreds of tiny lights that seemed to glimmer. The Mirrored S tables and Gold Geo chairs added a flair of elegance to the room.
To serenade the women of the hour, Cris Villonco sang popular songs in the ’70s and ’90s. The lovely voice of Cris singing At Last and Hopelessly Devoted To You filled the entire room with a soothing ambiance. Manila String Machine arranged the medley for the guests to enjoy and sang along with.
Filled with passion
As the CEO and owner of FILA Philippines, Cris has shown passion and dedication to her business. She was able to grow the enterprise into an empire in the fashion industry. Recently, FILA released a limited edition Disruptor 2 that first debuted at the Milan Fashion Week. The unique pair earned the “Shoe of the Year” award last year. The launch celebrated with “Born to Disrupt” party attended by the brand’s friends, celebrities, and street style enthusiasts. This recent launch allowed Cris to encourage people to believe in themselves and fight for equal opportunities. What she stressed the most is doing what makes one happy.
Happiness translated well into Cris and Tina’s birthday celebration. The night rejoiced the birth of women committed to their passions. It is only fitting to applaud their work in the fashion and hotel industry. Yet what is important is how the celebration highlighted the love of these women to people they meet.
