Patricia Santos added another hard-earned milestone in her six-year design career. Last February 28, she officially launched her luxurious new atelier in BGC, Taguig. The rose-colored soiree was attended by the designer’s loved ones, friends and a few of the country’s most beautiful muses including Miss World 2013 Megan Young, Miss Intercontinental 2018 Karen Gallman, actresses Chie Filomeno and Elisse Joson.
Renowned event stylist Gideon Hermosa transformed Patricia’s elegant atelier into a dreamy space reflective of the designer’s classic and feminine aesthetic. The atelier’s lounge was #Gideonized with mirrored tables, plush velvet ottomans, and crystal accents, adding to the drama of the surroundings. A profusion of pastel-hued blooms in pretty shades of white, blush and cream decorated the entryways and walls to the delight of the Instagram-loving guests.
Known for her keen attention to detail, Patricia collaborated with premier events
planner La Belle Fete to organize the event without a hitch. A Pinterest-worthy set up of finely crafted desserts greeted guests at the entrance awakening everyone’s inner Marie Antoinette.
Juan Carlo Catering created beautifully presented hors d’oeuvres including
some of Patricia’s favorites, Hokkaido scallops, and beef galloway.
Indulge Patisserie got guests excited with shelves filled with pink desserts!
Bullet Bar kept guests fizzy by serving specially designed cocktails with a whimsical twist. Guests were later treated to a display of some of Patricia’s best work. Apart from her celebrity muses who graced the event wearing her latest creations, fashion models donned her beautiful bridal gowns as living mannequins.
The atelier is an impressive 182 square meter property with a stunning view of the
urban landscape. Its sophisticated gray walls with elegant white molding, floor to ceiling windows, gilded accents and marble floors give the space an upscale New York apartment vibe. The fancy décor is not only a show of Patricia’s impeccable taste; it is the full experience she wishes to impart to her clients.
Patricia wishes her new atelier to be a beautiful space where clients especially brides can feel like royalty. She wants her clients to leave with more than the clothes they asked her to make.
