  • (1888PressRelease) February 03, 2015 - This 17th of February 2015, Sofitel Philippine Plaza presents Chinoiserie a Sofitel Manila showcasing the Dame of Philippine Fashion, Patis Pamintuan Tesoro's most current interpretation of Chinoiserie.  Witness this color virtuoso's unique version of the popular European 18th century east meets west design movement, which features dragons and other mystical creatures gleaned by European artists from porcelain and lacquerware motifs.

     "La Collection Rouge" for Rustan's is a 40-piece showcase which will feature Patis' signature treatment of handwoven piña embellished with a diverse range of embroidery, beadwork, and painting, all done by hand. Comfortable yet luxuriously adorned evening dresses will also be revealed, alongside her new line of upcycled wear made of an inimitable mix and match of floral and geometric patterns.

    "As an ambassador of French elegance, the Sofitel brand prides itself to celebrate this heritage with many unique events in our hotels, encompassing the world of fashion and gastronomy. The Chinoiserie a Sofitel Manila is a perfect illustration of our desire to show the fusion of both the best of Filipino and French design in the Philippines. Sofitel is privileged and honored to present the La Collection Rouge of the foremost Filipina designer Patis Pamintuan Tesoro, who has been collaborating with the French curators of the Festival International des Textiles Extra Ordinaires (FiTE) to promote the continuation of Filipino arts and crafts both traditional and contemporary,"says Adam Laker, Sofitel Philippine Plaza General Manager on the collaboration of Sofitel with Patis Tesoro.

    Patis has been designing since she was in her 20's.  Her launching line of voile peasant blouses were first made available in the 1970s through her late mother-in-law Salud Tesoro's popular chain of handicraft stores, Tesoro's: Treasure House of Philippine Handicrafts.

    She has since become a household name for made-to-order Filipinana inspired wedding and evening gowns, and her ground-breaking efforts in the revival of our natural textile, 'piña'.  Her work is sought after and is exhibited in different parts of the world, most recently in Lyon, France at Le MuséeBargoin, a museum featuring tapestry.

    She travels frequently in search of new techniques to inspire her and to evangelize the beauty of piña fabric and Filipino craftsmanship through fashion and textile art shows in France, Italy, Vietnam, and Beijing.  Her Boho/Contemporary Filipiniana line is a brand carried exclusively by Rustan's. 

    Enjoy a sumptuous Chinese Zodiac Signs menu prepared by Executive Sous Chef Mok Chee Wah for Chinese New Year. Guests can discover the dish that best describes them in this year of the Sheep.  Included in the dinner is a distinctive selection from the 21 dining ateliers of Spiral. Show starts at 7:00 pm, Spiral buffet dinner is from 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm.
