The good news, is that the Spanish fashion jewelry and accessories brand Uno de 50 has just entered Philippine Fashion and opened a store at SM Aura Premier in Bonifacio Global City. The brand’s Philippine franchise is a partnership with the SM Retail Group.
Uno de 50 expansion director Jose Luis Pardos and franchise director Riccardo Ranier flew to Manila for the occasion. They were welcomed by SM’s Elizabeth Sy, Uno de 50 president and CEO Jose Azullay and business unit head Christine Syjueco.
In his speech, Azullay noted the booming retail market in the Philippines, and that Uno de 50 is fortunate to have the best possible business partner in SM.
Other VIP guests spotted at the store’s opening were Valeria Cavestany Aboitiz and Jose Mari Ugarte, principal and editor in chief, respectively, of Uno de 50’s event partner Hola! Philippines; happy couple Christopher Warns and Bianca Zobel; and a number of Manille’s young stylish set including Bianca Araneta Elizalde, Georgia del Rosario, Ariella Arida, Rima Ostwani and Claudine Trillo.
Uno de 50 has been spreading its wings quite fast with the opening of its Manila store, the brand’s 29th worldwide, considering it was founded only in the late 1990s. In any case, both women and men of our town should be glad that there’s one store where they can find rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, anklets, watches and other interesting stuff made in Spain, verdad que si?
