MANILA, Philippines ? Ready for a little haute couture with your pan de sal?

Starting last week, high tea at the Makati Shang Lobby Lounge has become deliciously and fashionably native, with favorite Filipino merienda dishes like suman, halo-halo, and lumpiang sariwa. But the feast extends to the senses as well, with Manila?s top 20 designers providing just desserts.

Thanks to top designer Inno Sotto, celebrity producers Jojie Dingcong and Mac Cuan, beauty guru Patrick Rosas and top model Grace Molina, you can now sip your salabat tea while viewing the latest fashion ideas of the country?s most creative designers.

Called Fashion Watch Quartet, the concept was the brainchild of producer/singer Richard Tann and Inno Sotto in 1996 and was developed as a platform for showcasing promising Filipino designers. Recognized by Elsa Klensch of CNN, the fashion event went into a three-year hiatus but is being revived this year.

The show is divided into four segments, with Rhett Eala starting Series 1 last Feb. 12 and 14, Patrice Diaz continuing it on Feb. 19 and 21, Gian Romano on Feb. 26 and 28, and Cary Santiago on March 4 and 6. Series 2 has Mike de la Rosa on May 6 and 8, JC Buendia on May 13 and 15, James Reyes on May 20 and 22, Oj Hofer on May 27 and 29, Avel Bacudio on June 3 and 5, and Jojo Lloren on June 10 and 12. Hindy Tantoco starts off Series 3 on Aug. 5 and 7, followed by Dennis Lustico on Aug. 12 and 14, Ito Curata on Aug. 19 and 21, Lulu Tan Gan on Aug. 26 and 28, Rajo Laurel on Sept. 2 and 4, and Jun Escario on Sept. 9 and 11. Series 4 has Alex Bitong on Oct. 28 and 30, Joey Samson on Nov. 4 and 6, Ivar Aseron on Nov. 11 and 13, and Cesar Gaupo Nov. 18 and 20.

Giving local talent an opportunity to shine are sponsors Nokia, Metrobank Femme Visa, in cooperation with Belo Essentials and Globe Asiatique. LRC

For those who prefer their classic high tea British style, scones and clotted cream will be served. For inquires and reservations, please call Makati Shangri-La Reservations at 840 0884, 813 8888 ext 7588/7599.
