Sofitel Manila and the Margaret Collection

An enhanced selection of delectable specialties has been presented with the first in a quarterly series of Spiral's Sunday Brunch. Le Grand Royal Brunch has brought guests in the wonderful pleasure of gastronomy and showcased The Margaret Collection of multi-awarded fashion designer, Albert Andrada.

Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila started the year in royal fashion as Spiral presented Le Grand Royal Brunch enhanced by an elegant and nostalgic fashion show by multi-awarded fashion designer, Albert Andrada, presented under the creative direction of Robby Carmona.

For his fifth sartorial showcase at Sofitel, Albert created The Margaret Collection, inspired by the timeless royal fashion of Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon. The 14-piece collection featured colors of the crown jewels including ultra violet, the pantone color of 2018. Models walked through Spiral and its iconic staircase donning golden pearls by Jewelmer with glamorous make-up by Guerlain.

The celebration was a royal engagement of its own as guests arrived in fabulous high tea outfits. Lifestyle blogger couple David Guison and Vina Guerrero, wearing matching outfits in blush shades, both won the Best Dressed Awards and received special gifts from Tefal and Jewelmer. Model couple Hideo Muraoka and Fatima Rabago were awarded the King and Queen of Hearts Award receiving special gifts from Tefal and Elizabeth Arden. Model-photographer Jo Ann Bitagcol was awarded the Lady Guerlain Award while high-society columnist Tina Jacinto was awarded the Elizabeth Arden Lady Award.
