The Century Properties Group pulled off another fab event when it gathered our town’s cream of the creamiest at the grand launch of Century City Mall—the ultramodern five-story boutique mall on Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City.

The highlight was the futuristic fashion creations by young Filipino designer Francis Libiran. As Century Properties chief operating officer Marco Antonio put it, Libiran’s designs “reflect the energy, vibe and global spirit of Century City Mall. This mall is a showcase of Century Properties’ passion and creativity as a developer.”

Family in attendance
Marco shared the moment with his brothers Jigger, Robbie and Carlo, all achievers in their own field connected to Century Properties, as well as his parents, Century Properties chair Jose E.B. “Joey” Antonio and Hilda Reyes, no less.

“Century City Mall serves as an exciting new complement to the current retail centers in Makati City,” said general manager Graham Coates before the start of the fashion show.

TWG Tea Salon served refreshingly cool signature drinks. Free-flowing cocktails from Grey Goose, Bacardi and Bombay Sapphire kept our adrenaline high, dahlings.

Water spectacle
As the models walked the runway, the mall turned on its interactive multimedia water spectacle, providing a well-choreographed show with music, lights and fantastic water fountain effects.

Joey and wife Hilda then went up the stage. “In building its flagship mall development, Century Properties delivers once again the world-class standards it has applied for our high-profile residential projects: the Essensa East Forbes, Trump Tower, the Milano Residences, the newly turned over Gramercy and Knightsbridge Residences, plus the Azure Urban Resort Residences,” he said.

Then, it was time for the grand fireworks display, with Makati’s skyline and high-rise buildings as backdrop.

Après that, I rushed over to another happening, palangga.
