CONDURA bigwigs Ronnie and Menchu Concepcion, Ton Concepcion

Totally exciting and stylish was the launch of Condura at the Rockwell Tent.

Happily welcoming their chosen invitees were the unbeatable famille triumvirate of Raul Concepcion, Renna Hechanova-Angeles and Ton Concepcion, the hotshots behind Concepcion Durables Inc (CDI), “the leading and only all-Filipino refrigerator company in the country today,” Renna told moi, palanggas.

The all-new series Condura Negosyo Refrigerators, such as the fifth-generation 5G Series and Negosyo Style Series, were introduced in a fashion show.

Gorgeous and jaw-dropping models from South America, Europe and Asia participated in the fabulous runway show. The event was definitely not your usual refrigerator launch, palanggas.

CDI also announced it was all geared up to go global. Marking this important milestone was the introduction of the new Condura logo, which certainly looks at par with the world’s best brands.

It was crystal clear, when the bash got on an avalanche-roll, that everyone was looking forward to seeing more of what Condura has in store for the local market and beyond, dahlings.

“Cosmo is happy to have played such a significant role not just in thousands of young Filipino women’s lives but also in our women’s history, empowering thousands of Cosmo girls all over the country,” Sison said to wild applause, natch!

Avon tribute

Passion and hard-earned success were the focus of Avon, dubbed “The Company for Women,” during the President’s Banquet and Gala Night at the reception hall of the Philippine International Convention Center, dahlings.

Hosted by the witty pair of Randy Santiago and John Estrada, the fab happening themed “Shine!” gave special recognition to 1,800 outstanding sales leaders of Avon from all over the country. It also saw the launch of YOU [Your Opportunity Unlimited], “the new Avon leadership structure designed to promote better growth opportunities for these individuals,” said PR gal Joy Buensalido.

The highlight was Avon giving out a magnificent lipstick-red Mercedes Benz, no less, to the successful sales leader who achieved the YOU targets. Now that truly deserves a wow, di bala?

Avon Philippines’ new president and GM Kanwar Bhutani looked like a fine gentleman beside Avon’s gorgeously stunning endorsers, such as Anne Curtis, Ruffa Gutierrez, Bb. Pilipinas 2011 Shamcey Supsup and Lucy Torres-Gomez.

Also in the crowd were other Bb. Pilipinas titleholders, who left the men and women in the audience mesmerized with so many beauties around.

Yes, dahlings, Avon’s President’s Banquet and Gala Night was an incredible celebration that paid tribute to passion, hard work and determination, qualities that make up the successful Avon sales representative.
