Friday last week, I was in SM Mall of Asia Atrium for Kipling's 25th anniversary celebration. I seldom go to this place for a blog event, but I always make an exception if it's a fashion show. Upon registration, I was greeted by a number of Kipling fans playing the game Spot the Monkey, Kipling for Keeps and Pair it! where the lucky ones got to take home awesome prizes and surprises.
I love this pink stage backdrop for Kipling's anniversary celebration. The monkey with number 25 as its tail is cute. I should've went upstage to have a photo of myself using this as a background, but the program started as soon as I settled at the front row (right side).
The event was attended by bag enthusiasts, fashion and lifestyle bloggers and some celebrities. Spotted were Patty Laurel and her fiancé Patrick Filart, Reema Chanco and boyfriend Erik Waldie (not in this photo), TV actress and fashion blogger Laureen Uy, and Anton del Rosario of Azkals.
The cutest DJ, also MTV VJ, Andi Manzano hosted the show. In this photo, she's interviewing the two young girls from the audience.
It was also her 25th birthday that day, same age with Kipling. What a coincidence, right?
One of the people behind Kipling Asia, Kocher Lau, made a little talk about Kipling and its succes. After which, we feasted our eyes on the parade of colorful and stylish Kipling bags for Spring/Summer 2012. Check my separate post HERE.
Patty Laurel wearing a beautiful floral maxi dress with fiancé Patrick Filart. I wonder when are they getting married. They look so bagay na bagay!
The sporty couple Reema Chanco and boyfriend Erik Waldie. Are these two getting married too? Hihi.
A photo op with Andi Manzano after the fashion show. I love her aquamarine jeans so much. Very summery.

My last photo op before leaving the event location. Isn't it obvious in my photos that I was wearing flats that day?
Special thanks to the PR of Kipling Philippines for inviting me to this event.
Happy anniversary Kipling. More monkey years to come!!!
