Freeway x National Artist Levi Celerio

The Freeway x Manansala launch last October was one of my most memorable bloggers' events. So, when I got the invite to the Freeway x Levi Celerio launch this June, I didn't hesitate to say yes.

The launch happened at The Row, Glorietta 5 last June 4. But, instead of celebrating a night full of fashion and art, we celebrated a night full of fashion and music this time around.

I met up with Rovie at Starbucks and then headed upstairs after Henry took her outfit shots. When we got there, I saw these lovely ladies already in their seats:

KiraKrissy and Hana

Also spent time with these girls:

Of course, we also enjoyed some delicious food before the program began.

The event was hosted by former Freeway poster girl, Giselle Tongi, and we were bedazzled by a spectacular musical performance of Levi Celerio’s songs by Asia’s Queen of Songs, Ms. Pilita Corrales.

Afterwards, Dr. Antonio Hila, cultural historian and a music critic shared interesting talks and trivia about Celerio and his dedication and intense love for music. It was very interesting to discover the personal side of the music legend Levi Celerio. 

It was definitely a memorable night of music, fashion and history - the perfect pre-event to Independence Day this month!

Now on its 7th installment, Freeway continues to pay tribute to our National Artists through its National Artist Collectors’ Series. This June, Freeway honors its first ever National Artist for Music featured in the well-loved series, Levi Celerio.

The best part is that we all got to take home a cute Freeway x Celerio memorabilia – a limited edition Miniature Harmonica Levi Celerio necklace that actually works!

And guess what? :D

Kaye and I won as two of the five best-dressed guests that evening and were able to take home a Freeway x Levi Celerio galaxy print shirt! :D

Wheeeee! :D

Before bonding over coffee at Bo's Coffee with Jacky and Rovie that night, I took some more photos of the other fashionable bloggers that I spotted there:
