30 Iconic Years of Marie France
Marie France celebrated 30 years of being the most trusted name in slimming and non-invasive weight loss in the country with a glittery affair at the Nobu Garden Patio. The guests were welcomed by Marie France President George Siy and his wife Mimi Siy, Jackie Siy-Share, Peter Prestige, Robin Horsman, and Angeline Siy-Fiechter. With the theme Iconic Figure, everybody dressed in the evening's colors--glam white, bold black, and luxe gold--making for a picture-perfect affair.
Marie France brand ambassadors Sam Oh and Issa Litton, who were the night's hosts, started off the festivities with sake shots. As the six-course dinner was served, guests were serenaded by a string quartet. Afterwards, a special video presenting a collection of inspiring slimming journeys of Marie France's endorsers and clients was shown on LED screens placed around the venue. It was the perfect tribute to Marie France's 30 years of weight loss that works.
An exclusive behind the scenes video was also presented that night, which highlighted the beautiful partnership between Marie France and the country's top three luxury magazines: Town & Country, Metro Society, and Lifestyle Asia. This is the very first time that one brand was able to gather together these three magazines for iconic anniversary covers, supported by billboards all over the metro.
Another highlight of the event was the unveiling of a pioneering project between ICanServe and Marie France, which aims to show support and love for women who are battling breast cancer. The ICanServe awareness video was conceptualized and created by visual storyteller, Jason Magbanua, narrated by Dawn Zulueta-Lagdameo, with Lea Salonga singing “Save It All” by Marie Hines. Other talents and celebrity endorsers of Marie France and Facial Care Centre also contributed their time and effort to make this project a huge success.

The party ended with a congratulatory toast to Marie France's 30 successful years, which was made possible by the unending support of the people behind the country's top publications.
