“This is it. My future office,” celebrity fashion designer Patricia Santos beamed as she stood by the window, taking in the magnificent BGC skyline.

Her dreams were vivid and bold. “The moment I stepped inside, I had a vision. A feeling,” she says.

And dream big she did. One random January afternoon with her mother and her sister was the defining moment. As Patricia strolled around BGC, she told her mother—"Ma, gusto ko ng shop na may sobrang gandang view." Her family was supportive—so supportive that they called up a broker, went around the city, and discovered the location of her new venture, all in one day.

Today, it’s a 182-square meter hotel-esque haven, perfect for every bride-to-be and those who want to feel like a princess on a special day. It all started with a bare room, three walls of gray concrete that framed the blue sky.
