This Filipiniana-Themed Birthday Is Styled With Modern Architecture In Mind

Events design master Gideon Hermosa had a modern-day architectural approach to this 40th birthday celebration, "utilizing traditional bamboo and turning its flexibility into an artful display of installations"

Held at the Manila Marriott Hotel in Pasay City on June 23, 2023, Liezl Jorge’s 40th birthday bash is a humble marriage of modern art and architecture elements and Philippine emblems. With Gideon Hermosa’s man-made magic, the Filipiniana-inspired function came out as a cultural masterpiece. 

With the bamboo material in mind and modern architecture as inspiration, House of Hermosa’s master designer and events decorator transported the guests into a traditional space that serves a reimagined rendering of Filipino interiors, furnishings, and art.

Apart from Gideon, Liezl’s 40th birthday celebration is brought into being by creative suppliers such as Rhed Sarmiento (events planning and coordination); Nice Print Photo (photography); Forevermine Wedding Films (videography); Rau Uson-Ablaza (white gown); Jhobes Estrella (dance outfit); Jefferson Si (footwear); Sound Level Production (technical production); LX Events Pro (staging); Adrian Gajudo (lighting direction); Always in Motion Live (graphics and visuals); Geraldine Uy (dance performances); 3rd Avenue (live music); Manila String Machine (strings); Honey Glaze Cakes (cake); Anggulo Prints (photoman); Manila Craft (bar catering service); and Print Divas (invitations).

Hosted by Dianne Medina and Uma Rojo, the birthday party was a love letter to Philippine symbols. It has a bold take on the modern terno, as the bright and stylish fuchsia and blue fashion ensembles by Jo Rubio are an expression of the fierce yet feminine Filipina. 

Liezl Jorge highlighted her features with the touch of Toni Aviles’ makeup, too. The celebrity makeup artist and maven chose to beautify the birthday celebrator with a classic nude and natural look—muted lip tones, bushy brows, and a timeless bronze blush. Her soft tresses, on the other hand, were styled by Manilyn Moster
