Last Thursday, I was invited to Network for Enterprising Women (N.E.W.) Press Conference at Angel's Kitchen in One Rockwell, Makati.
The Network for Enterprising Women (N.E.W.) was established in 2006 to champion the enterprising spirit of the modern Filipina. Its membership includes women owners and entrepreneurs, and leaders of businesses in various industries and sectors. N.E.W. serves as a powerful support group for women where they have the opportunity to network, exchange ideas and share best industry practices.
Several important and influential female personalities were invited to the event to talk about how women make a big impact in the society
Actress Alice Dixon, Zen Institute's Dr. Mary Jane Torres , Fashion Blogger Tricia Gosingtian, and owner of Jericho Organic beauty products talked about how women are very powerful and why they shouldn't be intimidated by men in the society
With Celebrity Mom Magazine's Editor-in-Chief Ms. Carla Perlas
I've been a fan of her creations for a long time now and it was really great to meet the international renowned designer Ms. Pia Gladys Perey during the event.
with Tricia Gosingtian of Tricia Will Go Places
Funny thing is that being in the fashion industry for almost three years now, Tricia and I never met in person (we conversed through e-mail) and it was really fun chatting with her the WHOLE afternoon! We talked about blogging, fashion, college life, and anything under the sun! It was really cool to know that we view things in life quite similarly :) Thank you again, Tricia!
The organization regularly plans events as venue for the members to network. One such event is the Fashion and Beauty Fair which would be held at the Rockwell Tent in Makati City.
The two-weekend event takes place on October 12 & 13 and on October 19 & 20, 2013 and is aimed to gather Local Fashion Designers, Fashion Schools, Brands, Entrepreneurs, Manufacturers, and Retailers.
Special highlights of the event are fashion shows by some of the prestigious fashion schools like iAcademy and FADAL Manila.

The Beauty Expo is sponsored by Fabio Salsa, Status Hair Salon, Jericho, Organi, Zen Institute, Center for Aesthetic Studies, to name a few. There will also be talks and make-overs which will be given by notable fashion, image experts and entrepreneurs such as Ms. Geolette Esguerra and Ms. Charmagne Laconico of Metro Magazine, Ms. Miriam Quiambao- Ms. Universe 1999 First Runner Up, Ms. Alice Dixson- former beauty queen/ actress/ model, and Dra.
