the TATE press launch

Last Friday, I had a press launch for the TATE at the Old Manila, Peninsula Hotel.

I just invited an intimate number of close press friends.

Stephanie Chong, director of Events and James Reyes helped with the idea of the set up

Steff wanted me to use my terrariums (I’ve been obssessed lately making them),

James drew me a plan.

The menu was taken from the successful Australian food festival by Michelin starred chef Greg Doyle.  It was sooo good.

Fact: I rushed the launch because I wanted my guests to catch the outstanding menu.

Of course, I didn’t get to take pics at the event- I always forget and get busy but I am glad that some people did.

my only photo- that’s Pauline Juan, EIC of Preview Magazine.

Here are takes from Jessica Tan Gan, Rajo Laurel, Agoo Bengzon Bea Ledesma and Candifer’s instagram pics.

I am blessed with wonderful friends in the media who always support me!

A big thank you to everyone who made it!

Meet the TATE

Spring/Summer 2013 handbag collection

the TATE

I would like to introduce to you my latest clutch collection, the TATE.

Following the successful launch of my first color-blocked clutch called the TATJANA and named after my precocious son, the TATE is a versatile clutch bag that can easily transcend from day to night.

Made of the finest stingray sourced from the same purveyor of exotic skins who also supplies the houses of Fendi and Louis Vuitton and complemented with soft lambskin leather, it measures 11 x 7.5 x 2 inches (which perfectly fits an iPad!) with an outer and inner pocket slot.

It also comes with an adjustable lambskin leather shoulder strap. What separates the TATE from the rest is the finishing of the stingray leather, namely:

1.    Florentine finish (which is a type of sand blasting that make the stingray skin smooth and gleaming),

2.    Gold and silver wash (subdued flecks of metal washed over the stingray making it sparkle),

3.    Natural (showcasing the true beauty of the stingray)

see the subtle flecks of gold sparkle?

These treatments are brand new to the industry.

There are twelve yummy colors to choose from: topaz, citrine, olivine, tourmaline, jasper, coral, onyx, lapis, amethyst, quartz and garnet – all with my signature 3 pointer diamond in sterling silver in the center.

The clutch will be available at JANINA for Jul Dizon at the Peninsula Hotel, Jul B. Dizon Jewellery at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel and CURA V at the Powerplant Mall starting February 8, 2013.

Here is a video we made for the TATE:
