The glittering crowd filled the Gallery of The Peninsula Manila to the brim, at the recent RUPERT JACINTO “Faaabvlous II” coffee table book launch and photo exhibit. Co-presented with Air France-KLM, the Gallery of the Pen dazzled with the Jun Jun Ablaza touch. JunJun decorated the long stretch of the gallery with towering gold and silver pillars, massive European lamp statues. Highlight of the exhibit were the portraits of royalty, headed by Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Calabria, the Marquesa de Valdeolmos, Marquesa de Campo Real, Marquesa de Tamarit and aristocrats of Spain.
The artist photographer and his photo team flew to Madrid to photograph these subjects for the event. The exhibit/launch was presented in partnership with the Advertising Foundation of the Philippines, in support of the Love-A-Parish program of the Sto Nino de Paz, which supports needy churches across the country. Chaplain is Fr. Jun Sescon. Other partners include HP Philippines, Inc. Manny O Wines, Maxi One Production, Triple R Large Format, Philippine Star-Allure, FILA, O.N.E.
