International Designer Francis Libiran joins Notable Awardees at the launching of Global Pinoy Center in SM City San Lazaro held last February 28, 2013. It was a grand opening, so may we speak of. The Global Pinoy Center branch launched at SM City San Lazaro was filled with elegance as VIPs and guests were all into wearing Filipiniana motif for the day’s event. Men in Barong Tagalog while the ladies were wearing their flamboyant and modernized Baro’t Saya. This was seen as inevitable since the opening was held in the city where Alfredo Lim, the Mayor, holds his supremacy. Lim is known to be a supporter of native and Barong Tagalog outfits.
The opening heralded the ground-breaking ribbon cutting and awarding of notables like Cris “Kesz” B. Valdez – International Children’s Peace Prize Winner; Chef Pablo “Boy” R. Logro – Kusina Master; Francis Aldrich R. Libiran – A- List Designer; and Dr. Raul M. Sunico – Concert Pianist, Orchestral Soloist and Composer Arranger. The Philippine Opera Company dishes out a few Kundiman songs before the Blessing of the new GPC branch was officiated.
Located at the 3F, The Global Pinoy Center SM City San Lazaro specializes the all-in-one convenience stop within SM Supermalls offering various exclusives services, perks, and privileges to welcome and uplift the Global Pinoys.
