It's a 10 for Culte Femme

In-house Rustan's brand Culte Femme celebrated 10 years in the fashion industry this week. Designer Hindy Weber-Tantoco decided not to do a fashion show but instead threw a party to just plain celebrate decade in fashion. She did it in grand style in a private party over at Martinis, Mandarin Oriental.

Free flowing vodka-based drinks from Belvederre Vodka!

For her latest (and some say last) collection, she gathered 10 muses who embody the Culte Femme spirit. 

Anna Go-Chia

Rima Ostwani

Daphne Osena-Paez

Stephanie Kienle


Cesca Litton

Mai Kauffman

and herself!

Artist Nikki Luna wasn't there, so no shots of her! But yes, she's a muse!

Raya Mananquil and Tim Yap hosted the event. Rissa Mananquil was also in attendance.

It was also a time to get together with some of my co-workers:

Not exactly a co-worker, Valerie de Guzman

With Ana Kalaw

With Jackie Cohen-Antonio

And my kabarkada KP came to keep me company! She came from a jungle-inspired party, hence the leggings:

Here she is with her idol, Daphne Osena-Paez. We just had to get a photo of KP with her!

Congratulations Hindy! Cheers to 10 more years? We'll see!
