The invitation said it all! Swinging Silk Party of Hermes : Attire for Girls-Silk Scarves, lipstick, skirts, ballet shoes or heels and for boys-slicked back hair, rockabilly, tuxedo or zoot suit. Think John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in  Grease!

It was held at the disco of the New World Hotel. Mario Katigbak, Hermes' CEO for Manila,  and his team made sure that every detail was in place, including a live band, male and female dance instructors,  hot dog, popcorn, mini burgers, a cheese spread, sweets,  tatoo artists, and make up artists. Champagne was overflowing and wines and other drinks were yours for the asking. It was soooo swinging, so sexy, so different from the other parties in Metro Manila! We literally let our hair down!  Nobody was a wall flower except those who opted to be.  Swing, boogie, line dancing, cha cha , salsa, we did it all! And at close to midnight, breakfast fare of arroz caldo, croissants, mini sandwiches and desserts were for the famished dancers.  What a night, what a  party!  Thank you Hermes!

Take a ride on the wild side!
