Style and Socials | Creating Contacts at the Enderun Cocktail Night

The corporate dealings may it be inside the board room or at a social event space, set a code of specific pleasantry.

Collateral to Davao’s recent commercial fame, the city is gradually reshaping its venues for social events and corporate gatherings. After all, functions host social interaction which is imperative for every business partnership.

Events at Enderun Azuela Cove : A much-anticipated event site south of the Philippines

The latest addition to Davao’s array of spaces for social events is Events at Enderun Azuela Cove. Situated inside the so called cradle of the “crazy rich Asians” of Davao, Enderun’s tent is a 2,000 sqm. air-conditioned venue that can accommodate up to 1,500 guests, with a sprawling parking space, at the most strategic corner of the city.

The Events at Enderun Azuela Cove follows the same tradition as the first Enderun Tent in Taguig City. It offers a similar portfolio, handling corporate and social events as well as broader engagements such as conventions and exhibits. In addition to serving as a top-class event space, it is also set to be the anchor of a new Enderun campus in Davao.image

From crisp to creases : Linen over cocktails and contactsimage

Social events are electrifying. You are warming up almost every attendee to identify that common ground that ignites a promising business tie-up. Such excitement though, along with the intermittent sips of that enticing spirits in a glass makes us feel a bit steamy no matter how freezing the venue is.

Especially when you have found that soul-talker and the conversation gets really interesting, we tend to feel warm within that space from our skin to the undershirt and from your undergarment to your outer drape.  This is the very reason why I am more mindful of the kind of fabric I am wearing when attending socials.

I pick that fabric which prevents me from being near roasted and allows me to skip wearing the undershirt. I am obsessed with linen-made formal shirts recently. With either a mild or heady cocktail on my hand, it just breathes. It is cool and light to wear.

Linen easily wrinkles. That is the other reason why I love wearing it during events. It makes your look unique among the sturdy shirt clad invitees. It is the ripples that bring aesthetic to the look. It even emphasizes the cuts in your arms (which you were working out hard at the gym). It crinkles but still holds its shape specific to your body’s built. It looks care free yet still tidy.

STYLING SCOOP: Though linen easily wrinkles, I choose to press it with the ironing spray I use for my office Barongs when attending socials. The crisp exudes that sharp and credible first impression to every person you will meet during the earlier part of the event. Never attend the formal event with an already wrinkled linen shirt.

The beauty of garbing linen during event is like the euphoria we get to feel when sipping cocktails. You arrive at the event with it being crisp. Then, gradually creating the creases as you become more sociable as the conversation gets more involving.

The corporate dealings may it be inside the board room or at a social event space, set a code of specific pleasantry. But a crinkled shirt is not necessarily a code-breaking style. Not when it is a linen.
