The life and works of Levi Celerio - in fashion
THE PEPPER MILL - Pepper Teehankee (The Philippine Star) - June 19, 2012 - 12:00am

Even in the world of fashion, the music of the late National Artist Levi Celerio makes a mark. 

As its way of paying tribute to our National Artists, Freeway, a fashion brand, honors Celerio this month through its seventh National Artist Collectors series.

The series has featured National Artists Nick Joaquin (literature), Ang Kiukok (visual arts), Jose Garcia Villa (literature), Ramon Valera (fashion design), F. Sionil José (literature) and Vicente Manansala (visual arts).

Celerio, a composer and songwriter, was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Record as the only person able to make music using just a leaf. He was proclaimed National Artist for Music and Literature in 1997.

Freeway gathered fashion and music enthusiasts, media and bloggers, and the family and friends of Levi Celerio to celebrate the life and works of the Filipino music prodigy at The Row in Glorietta 5. The event was hosted by former Freeway poster girl Giselle ‘G’ Tongi. She was joined by cultural historian and a music critic Dr. Antonio Hila, who shared interesting trivia about Celerio and his dedication and love for music. The audience participated in the discussion via live tweeting on the LED screen onstage. 

One of the highlights of the night was the musical performance of Levi Celerio’s songs by Pilita Corrales. Guests were treated to cocktails. They also took home a limited edition miniature Levi Celerio harmonica necklace that actually works!

Keeping skin forever young

The quest for the fountain of youth may be elusive but it doesn’t mean it can’t be found. Sometimes the answer is contained in a beauty tube.

Vaseline Perfect 10 was recently launched as the brand’s first and only product that delivers the two-fold advantage of whitening and anti-aging in one. It reduces fine lines, lightens and nourishes skin, boosts radiance, reduces dark spots and gives UVA/UVB protection.

The product was launched with a high tea media event held at the Palm Grove of Rockwell Club. The event saw the launch of the new face of Vaseline Perfect 10, Daphne Oseña-Paez, who said, “I am very honored to now be part of the Vaseline family. Not only because Vaseline is a brand I’ve grown up with, but because I know from experience that Vaseline Perfect 10 really works in keeping my skin moisturized and youthful-looking.”

The Vaseline Skin Technology Center conducted clinical studies to prove the product’s efficacy. With Vaseline Perfect 10 lotion, youthful-looking and fairer skin is at the fingertips of every woman who longs to look forever young.
