Salon de Ning

Recently had a shoot for a wedding magazine at the current toast of tinseltown--Salon de Ning.  Located at the ground floor of one of the best hotels in the Philippines--The Manila Peninsula--this new must-go haven is the place to be seen.  Social butterflies, stylesetters and industry insiders flock to this chic kitschy habitat with no uncompromising restraint.  Style is a tall order as lingering eyes spot the latest personalities in the news, fashion and society lounge and toast to a night of fun, gossip and relaxation.  The setting is a chic tapestry of finery inspired from 1930's Shanghainese Art Deco echoing the glamorous world of Madame Ning.  Old world made modern, the distinct habitue is the epitome of salon chicness that was then and so now.
Lounge luxe.
On stage.
Talk of the town.
Not your ordinary Cinderella story.
Seat of power.
Frame fillers.
Crystal clear.
