Tiffany & Co. unveils new flagship store in Makati
(The Philippine Star) - August 11, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Last July 12, Tiffany & Co. opened a spectacular new store in the heart of the Makati CBD. The newly designed store is located on Greenbelt 4, Ayala Center, Makati and occupies 1,360 square feet of what will become the pinnacle of the Tiffany shopping experience in the Philippines.

From the dramatic facade design to its gracious interior, the store echoes the company’s global reputation and 182-year history that includes Makati, where Tiffany first opened a store in 1993 inside Rustan’s Department Store. This location marks the company’s third store in Metro Manila, but its first standalone store outside Rustan’s.

To celebrate the launch of this milestone flagship store in the Philippines, Tiffany & Co hosted a show-stopping evening for dear friends and clients. Guests were whisked into a dim-mirrored hallway with a graphic glowing Tiffany “T”. The end of the tunnel revealed an elegant dinner catered by the luxury service of Makati Shangri-La with a set-up of a long dining table with mirror table toppers and lush floral arrangements in berry tones. Overhead, billowing swaths of fabric were draped along the ceiling with romantic chandeliers hung throughout the hall, glowing with warm light.
