Town & Country Philippines launched its tenth anniversary September issue with celebratory cocktails with some of its young, dynamic readers.
Its first DownTown & Country cover features Marion Branellec, Sofia Borromeo, Selina Ocampo, and Brian Poe Llamanzares, part of Manila's vibrant, passionate new jet-set.
With a roomful of their friends and other bright young things, Manila House’s eclectic décor was the perfect backdrop for the intimate event held in partnership with Globe Platinum.
Fueled by Champagne and gin and tonics, guests engaged in animated conversations and filled the room with laughter.
