SLIM Gala at the National Museum

National Museum of the Philippines

The opening gala of SLIM: Salvacion Lim Higgins, Philippine Haute Couture 1947-1990 was spectacular! The first time I saw the National Museum of Philippines in full regalia, fitted with red carpet and its Marble Hall filled with glamorous people.

Peninsula Manila catered for the night. I enjoyed the Spanish Tapas, assortment of cheese and bubbly champagne they served. House names in Philippine Fashion and celebrities graced the much anticipated event.

The creations of SLIM is a must see for every fashion professional and patrons of the arts.

Here's my snaps for the night.
