The Day was dressed for a celebration as Martish Marketing Company --the exclusive sub-distributor of Havaianas in Southern and Eastern Mindanao, held 'Obrigada 2014' at the Northcrest Resort Ballroom last March 12 2014.
Martish has once again bested itself in preparing for 'Obrigada 2014'. Known for sophistication in organizing themed parties, Martish adorned the venue with shabby chic elements, making it feel and looks like a picture taken on a bright summer day!
Consistent to the light and summery feel of the occasion, plates of Cheese Savory, Creamy STuffed Eggs, Vegetable STicks with Anchovy Dressing, and Meatballs with Holiday Dip were passed around as guests arrived and settled.
'Obrigada', which means 'thank you' in Portuguese, is the company's annual gathering of Davao's top media personalities, and key influencers. "Because this afternoon is a bigger celebration than past years', it just means that our hearts are ever so thankful for the support that you have given through the years," Marga Nograles remarked in her welcome message to the guests.
The left photo corner was fashioned after living room with a pastel pink striped wall and white french windows. Right across was a line of white merry-go-round horses held up by pastel pink, pastel blue, and pastel green tubes. At the center was a white wall bedecked with kites pinned as if they were actually flying among cottony blue clouds. The runway looked like a real garden with its green grass mat and white picket fences.
What made this year's 'Obrigada' more special is the launch of the Havaianas 2014 Collection. A boutique show was staged to parade the highlights of 2014. One by one, the models appeared on the runway donning Havaianas Top, Slim, and High Fashion Styles in flashing colors of neon pink, neon yellow, neon orange.neon green, and the staple nude, gold, black, and chocolate brown hues.

From the venue to the decors, to the food, to the fashion show, 'Obrigada 2014' has trademarked a complete Havaianas package-- a dainty celebration, excelling in its details, filled with the warmth of thanksgiving, and the laughter of its Havainactico guests.
Thank you to Ms. Marga, Martish, and Teejay.
