Philippine Tatler Presents 2017 Gen.T List

This elegant, albeit high-octane affair was certainly one for the books as Philippine Tatler brought together the brightest young talents of the country in one room.

More than 300 attended the invitation-only Generation T 2017 event

Philippine Tatler presented its Generation T Top 50 list for 2017 (31 of which were able to attend)at the Shangri-La at the Fort Manila’s High Street Lounge to more than 300 members of the Gen T community and guests.

Bon vivant and gregarious eventologist Tim Yap (Generation T 2016 alumnus and a member of this year’s Tatler Tribe) hosted and presided over the very special awarding of the Generation T Top 50 together with Irene Martel Francisco, Philippine Tatler Managing Director and Tamara Lamuniere, Generation T Head, Asia.

The WWF #NotPlastic certificate

This year’s Top 50 were awarded with a certificate of recognition and a donation, in their name, from Philippine Tatler towards the WWF Philippines’ initiative, the #NotPlastic campaign, which is aimed at keeping our oceans clean. The certificate was designed by the talented artist, Patrick Cabral, who was specially commissioned by WWF Philippines.

Bespoke cocktails by the Shangri-La at the Fort were enjoyed by all as well as four variants of the very popular Engkanto craft beer by Generation T Lister, Ian Paradies.

Talented chef and Generation T lister, Miko Aspiras collaborated on three memorable desserts together with Shangri-La’s executive chef especially for the affair. Of course everyone flocked to the live “bokeh” photo booth to be immortalised by former ‘It model’ and photographer extraordinaire / influencer Sara Black (who is Gen T 2016 alumnae) so they could post animated memories of the evening with friends.

Crowd favourite DJ Sam Nicole set the tone for the evening with her sultry and chill beats until a surprise set with DJ Katsu (Katrina Razon) who is Gen T and a coveted DJ in Manila (she just concluded a massive music festival in Thailand called Wonderfruit), that had everyone on the dance floor till the wee hours of the morning.
