Chocolate nights: A decadent affair
ON OCTOBER 20, fashionistas trooped to the newly opened Privé Club in The Fort Strip as Chocolate Clothing launched “Chocolate Nights”, the first in a series of sweet and sexy events hosted by the most loved women’s clothing brand.
Armed with a fresh creative direction and a newly revamped brand image, Chocolate Clothing now carries foreign labels such as Aztec Rose for hip resort wear and luxurious European apparel from Lolitta while still carrying beloved denim label Grab, casual looks from Sass, versatile pieces from Fate and impeccable collections from the in-house label; Chocolate.
Hip host Issa Litton started off the night with a short spiel on Chocolate Clothing. The excited crowd readily answered her trivia questions about the brand and gift certificates were handed out to the lucky winners who were decked out in fabulous Chocolate outfits. The “Most Stylish Table of the Night” with the most number of ladies in Chocolate outfits won a special prize while the “Chocolate Sweetheart of the Night” was awarded to Shauna Popple who claimed an enviable swag bag.
As the Muses of Chocolate Clothing were presented, DJ Mars Miranda played hot new tracks and guests were treated to sweet “cake pop” treats especially made for the event by The Lollicake Factory.
Like a box of fine chocolates, the icons of Chocolate Clothing are diverse with their unique fashion flair and dynamic personalities. Chocolate Clothing’s Muses included: talented singer Bea Tantoco; Mega Publishing’s magazine maven Cheryl Tiu; real estate heiress Camille Villar; lifestyle and travel columnist, and restaurateur Heidi Ng; savvy businesswoman Kaye Panganiban; model/actress Helena Belmonte; public relations guru Celine Gabriel-Lim; witty blogger Ingrid Go; trendy fashion editor Nina Estacio; up and coming bag designer Reshma Chulani; Vicky De Leon of the Philippine Tatler; and model/beauty queen Miriam Quiambao.
