Hosts and Hostesses 1

Last September 18, Hermès held its much anticipated Silk Ball in The Rigodon Ballroom of The Peninsula Manila. Dashing men wearing mysterious masks and lovely ladies donning silk capes welcomed the guests to the venue.

The ballroom was magically transformed into a whimsical wonderland inspired by the French’s house iconic creation, the carré or the silk scarf.

The event had a mythical theme of “Beauty and the Beast”. It was carefully planned and well-executed with the event design coming from Hermès Paris and the event execution by the talented director, Jackie Aquino.

Room of Discussion

The Rigodon Ballroom of The Peninsula Manila had different vignettes that offered guests playful and animated activities, such as the makeup & headdress parlour and the chameleon booth. There was also a charming little area that gave guests colorful tattoos and fancy masks.
