Who are the next generation of visionaries, innovators, movers and influencers in the country? And who are making up the new generation of Philippine Tatler readers?
On Oct. 6, Philippine Tatler answered these questions by presenting a list of 100 awesome industry leaders and creative individuals, dubbed “Generation T,” via an exclusive soiree for 300 guests at the chic High Street Lounge of Shangri-La at the Fort.
The 100 A-listers, dahlings, are trailblazing individuals age 25-40 who have made their marks in their respective fields, and are helping make the country’s future bright.
In presenting its “Generation T” list, Philippine Tatler co-presented the launch with its lead partner Hublot. Sponsors including Credit Suisse, Shangri-La at the Fort, Moet & Chandon and Hennessy X.O. made the evening more memorable.
Many thanks to Moet Hennessy Philippines deputy managing director Olga Azarcon for always being there for Tatler.
Toasting the success of the launch and joining Philippine Tatler publisher Irene Martel Francisco and editor in chief Anton San Diego, no less, were Edipresse Media Asia’s Michel and Tamara Lamuniére, Hublot’s Loic Biver, Lucerne’s Emerson Yao, Credit Suisse’s Vanessa Bergqvist and Shangri-La at the Fort’s John Rice.
A novel part of the event was the live photo shoot with photographer Wesley Villarica. Everyone, palangga, immediately posted their fabulous photos on Instagram and Facebook.
In her welcome remarks, Francisco said: “The inaugural Generation T list took three months to produce. Many of the names were on Philippine Tatler’s radar, others were chosen through family networks. A great deal of indispensable insider knowledge combined with research, as well as multiple meetings for deliberation took place until the Tatler team finalized it.”
