Held at the Rigodon Ballroom of the Peninsula Manila, guests were treated to an afternoon of cocktail of delicious bites. A fashion show served as the platform, where the sisters (Janina Dizon Hoschka, Candy, Ginny and Lucille Dizon) presented their latest creations that complemented the designs of fashion designers Dennis Lustico and James Reyes.
Fashionable guests and jewelry connoisseurs got first dibs on the sparkling accessories that were revealed after the fashion show. Janina Dizon Hoschka presented her Cross, Kaleidoscope and homme collections: “The Cross collection was a theme exhibit at a recent Celestina event, while the Kaleidoscope is my newest collection—brilliant stimulating gems that hit all colors of the spectrum.” Hoschka shares with us a few of her most sparkling designs:
Ria Bolivar wears a low V-neckline dress by Dennis Lustico, giving highlight to the operal length white sapphire tennis necklace with two hanging brooches from the Cross collection. She also wears dangling earrings made of white sapphires and spessartite garnets and a bangle made of amethysts, tsavorites and white sapphires. Her ring is made of an emerald cut smoky topaz and multi coloured white sapphires. All in silver.
Chelsea Robato, in a nude-colored dress by Dennis Lustico, wears an en suite of African rubies with white and brown zircon. Her bangles consist of rubies, sapphires, aquamarines and green emeralds. All in silver.
Maryann Umali in a low-key black number by James Reyes, has a melange of moonstones, white topaz, citrines, amethysts, quartz and peridot for her necklace and earrings from the Kaleidoscope collection. On her right wrist, is bangle made of black shagreen with a rutilated quartz and white sapphires, on the left are green quartz with diamonds. Her rings consist of a rutilated quartz with white sapphires and yellow quartz with white sapphires and tsavorites. All in silver.
Alex Vergara wears my JANINA homme necklace of white and yellow sapphires on a black leather cord. His wrists have an assortment of shagreen cuffs. His belt has a longevity slider looped in (I would like to say that this was my idea, but it really was the genius thinking of Robby Carmona) He wears the drusy agate ring with a cognac diamond. All in silver.
