    Heyjow x Shimmer Prints: An Exclusive Look for our 7th Anniversary Collection

    Throughout the years, we’ve had the pleasure of working with a number of creatives on some truly beautiful projects, and this year, we collaborated with Shimmer Prints for a special 7th year anniversary look.

    Event stylist and paper connoisseur, Christine Villarama - Locsin is the girl boss behind Shimmer Prints. They specialize in personalized stationery, note cards, custom party invitations, gift tags. 

    Here, Christine shares with us her design process for this collaboration:

    "We wanted to focus on modern and organic elements. We used strong bold lines of color and patterns, and earthy colors that reminds us of exotic destinations. We wanted to bring a fresh look that will complement the nature-inspired pieces of the collection."

    Do you like our new look? Would love to know! Share it in the comments!

    Yesterday, I set-up for Mother’s Day lunch with the help of my favorite local brands. I'm grateful for the women behind these brands who have become friends and who are so generous with their time and effort.

    Heyjow 2019 Highlights: Milestones for our 6th Year

    As the Heyjow brand evolves, we as a team also grow and do more things out of our comfort zones. There were many firsts for us in 2019 - and here are the most memorable events and collections during our 6th year: 

    1. Heyjow at the 2019 Manila FAME 

    Known as the Philippines’ premier design and lifestyle event, Manila FAME promotes the Philippines as a reliable sourcing destination for high-quality and design-oriented home, fashion, holiday, architectural and interior products. 

    Our signature Summer Symphony Collection was showcased during the April run of the Manila FAME

    The 2019 edition of Manila FAME included new show features that included the Fashion E-tailer Special Setting that featured the country’s rising fashion entrepreneurs and designer commercial brands. Heyjow had the honor of being one of the featured Fashion E-tailers for the 3-day event held at the World Trade Center last April 25 to 27.

    It was our first time to participate in a big trade show and we were so grateful for the opportunity to meet fellow E-tailers and new clients through the show!

    2. Ode to Six Anniversary Collection 

    Heyjow pieces took on a vintage-inspired aesthetic for the Ode to Six collection. Featured pieces included chunky chains with striking geometric links, statement earrings, and tropical elements in stunningly saturated colors.

    We dressed up our model Anna Buquid with wardrobe pieces from Offbeat Alley

    One of the featured pieces in this collection is our Stamp Monogram collection

    For the shoot, we played with shadows to give the photos a different feel. We also created a Look Book featuring pieces from this collection. 

    3. Ode to Six Thanksgiving Party

    We wanted to express our gratitude to everyone who has shown us love since Heyjow started in 2013. As part of our anniversary celebration, we hosted an intimate gathering with friends and clients in August to say 'thank you' for their support for the past 6 years. 

    Nikki Garcia was kind enough to host our thanksgiving party and her beautiful home full of heirloom pieces became the perfect backdrop for our vintage-inspired pieces.

    Feliz Dish and Details took care of the tablescapes and food for the afternoon while dessert choices included Sabrina Go's yummy manchego cheesecake and agate-inspired cookies by The Little Whisk.

    Our guests had the chance to try our pieces on and have their photos taken by Sheila Catilo, our Chief Visual Brand Storyteller, who made a studio set-up in one corner of Nikki's home.

    4. Launching our first collection of fine jewelry called Heyjow Luxe

    Our first batch of fine jewelry pieces were launched just in time for the holiday season!

    Michelle Quizon-Llamas was our muse for Heyjow Luxe, a collection of elegant pieces set in 14k yellow gold, white gold and rose gold with diamonds and stones such as tourmaline and blue topaz.

    #HeyjowTurns4: A bohemian party at Ibiza Beach Club BGC

    #HeyjowTurns4: A bohemian party at Ibiza Beach Club BGC

    We wrapped up our 4th anniversary with a trip to Ibiza Beach Club in Bonifacio Global City.

    The lifestyle dining place boasts of a sprawling 4,000-square meter area with a refreshing vibe – predominantly white interiors and furnishings complemented with touches of teal and lime, sunken seating, and tall glass windows that offer a spectacular view of the city.

    It has a kind of non-intimidating elegance – and it was the perfect backdrop for our shoot with our July muse, Kelly Misa-Fernandez.

     

     

    After the shoot, we eased into a more relaxed mood and prepared for lunch. Ibiza Beach Club is known for being a night-out spot but also offer delectable day-time delights from their Early and Late Seating Special Lunch Set, premium Executive Lunch Set, and their signature grilled selections.

    A celebration was in order and Ibiza Beach Club’s Balearic-inspired 15-course grill was perfect for our anniversary party. The 15-course repertoire is an indulgent feast that features meat and seafood basted with Balearic sauces and marinades with a hint of Asian flavors.

    New Zealand Lamb Chops

    It includes a serving of salad or your choice from their Salad Bar, scrumptious Pao de Quejo or cheese bread, side dish, and a serving of grilled Queen Piña (roasted pineapple with cinnamon sugar served with honey, fresh yoghurt and crushed nuts).

    The experience made us feel like we were at a beach-side banquet rather than in the middle of Taguig’s business district – like a mini-vacay without leaving the city.

    Cheers to another year filled with love, light, and inspiration!

    Ibiza Beach Club BGC is located at 7th Avenue corner 30th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Follow them on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ibizabeachclub) and Instagram (@ibizabeachclubbgc).
