Last October 20, Rio Mints introduced its newest flavour Sweet Mango, a tropical flavour launched so fittingly in a relaxing outdoor party at the W Residences in Fort Bonifacio.
The concept of this event excited me since it was a backyard party so I expected a chill carefree vibe and upon arriving at the venue, I was really impressed. I can say that the place was perfect!
Known to be the mint for the stylish and trendy, Rio Mints did not fall short in living up to their reputation. With its latest flavour, Rio Mints continues to encourage individuals to express their distinct personalities. As such, the event was filled with so much creative energy, from the program to the activities, and even to the decors and giveaways.
Hosted by Alexis Go, the event started off with a reintroduction of Rio Mints by JCP Group Business Unit Manager Joni Ong. Coming all the way from Switzerland, these mints are sugar-‐free, low in calories and contain active nutritional ingredients. They also contain Xylitol, which keeps your teeth plaque free. Packaged in sleek and stylish tins, they’re practical since they can easily fit into your pockets.
Rio Mints also comes in seven unique, refreshing flavours that fit everyone’s different personalities. People can relate to a specific flavour depending on their mood, interests and quirks. There’s a Rio Mint flavour for everyone. In line with that, Ms. Ong shared how Rio Mints has sought to be a part of different individuals’ experiences by partnering with different organizations that immerse and push people to discover their distinct personalities and interests –whether that be fashion, music, arts, travel, food.
During this launch, Rio Mints partnered with the School of Fashion and the Arts. What better way to celebrate individuality than through a spunky and edgy fashion show inspired by the new Rio Mints Sweet Mango. But unlike other fashion shows, this one showcased the works of four individuals from different professions and backgrounds. They were asked to express themselves and how they were inspired by the new flavour through the plain white tee.
The pieces were cut, dyed, twisted, sewn together with scraps of cloth, and they all turned out worthy of everyone’s attention.
The Sweet Mango fashion show was a prelude to what would be the main activity of the event. To everyone’s surprise, each individual in the event got the chance to design his or her own white tee using the various materials provided such as beads, sequins, sewing kits, paint and scissors.
The activity was really fun and we enjoyed it.
And guess who won Php5,000 worth of gift certificate from Topman and a lomo camera?
Yes, it’s Paul! Congratulations! He deserved it :)
