MANILA, PHILIPPINES â€” International fashion designer and producer Boy Lizaso celebrated his 73rd birthday in style with the show-stopping â€œEmerald Ball Goes Bal Masqueâ€ last October 6, 2022, in Manila Hotel.
The dinner gala, which doubled as a fashion and awards show paid tribute to the style icon, who turned 73 this year, and saw some of Manilaâ€™s beloved socialites walking the runway with original Lizaso House of Barong and Style creationsâ€”all in emerald, as was the theme of the night.
It also honored trailblazing Filipinas at the helm of environmentally and socially responsible ventures as â€œEmerald Queens of the Universeâ€, â€œOutstanding Women of Style / Influencerâ€, and â€œCommunity Civic Leaderâ€.
Among the recipients was Ms. Jenny Lin Ngai, President, and Co-Founder of SunSmart Solar Power Technology, Inc. (SSPTI), an all-renewable energy company dedicated to providing innovative renewable and sustainable solutions.
â€œTo celebrate Boy and his wonderful creations, and to be recognized for the work we do at SunSmart, is the very best kind of thrill,â€ said Ms. Ngai, who was represented at the gala by Anne Barker and Bianca Hernandez, SunSmart Queens, and Miguel De la Rosa, President and Founder of Mplify Marketing.
â€œBoy has been someone I look up to for the longest time. He has paved the way for countless fashion designers in the country with grace and conviction, and itâ€™s very inspiring.â€
The Emerald Ball is Lizaso House of Barong and Styleâ€™s seventh annual charity event, with proceeds going to select charities.
