Design enthusiasts, lifestyle purveyors and editors gathered at the Dalisay Collection showroom at K11 Musea as ARAO opened its first pop up exhibition. The one-day event saw the perfect pairing of two Hong Kong based brands with deep roots in the Philippines. Mirabel Rosar, founder of ARAO shares, “Dalisay was the ideal partner for this since both our brands aim to showcase Philippine products, design and craftsmanship being marketed in other countries like Hong Kong.”
That evening, an intimate guest list was immersed in the brand experience of both ARAO and Dalisay Collection. It was an opportunity to try out pieces from the sustainable fine jewellery brand—from the South Sea pearl classics up to the more recent Paradox pieces. The latter, which launched just last June, have been making it to jewellery vaults of some of Hong Kong and Manila's well-heeled. Mirabel recalls, “it was a more personalized experience for our guests. And since they arrived at different times, we had the chance to really engage and tell guests more about our brand and its products.”
Apart from Philippine-made, hand-woven face masks from luxury resort label, CAMLU, guests were sent off with curated cocktails by 25:00. Creative cocktails beautifully packaged as to-go gifts were thoughtfully concocted to compliment the day’s special event. The most precious token of that day, however, came in the forms of good cheer, laughter and light. It was generously shared among guests, grateful for the time spent in beautiful company.
