SM Megamall’s new wing, the Mega Fashion Hall gives SM Megamall a fresh, iconic identity.

The Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall’s game-changing new wing, opens on January 28, 2014 as a premier shopping, dining, and lifestyle destination.

The 86,000 square meter new wing also creates a new exciting presence on EDSA and gives SM Megamall a fresh, iconic identity. SM Mega Fashion Hall’s exterior takes its cue from the barcode blocks from the existing mall in white and silver metal barcode stripes, all running vertically.

The main part of the expansion is a semicircular drum located on the former Building B carpark site facing EDSA. Five-storeys high to match the existing SM Megamall floors, its basic planning forms a half-circle loop which connects into the original SM Megamall’s straight circulation spine.

In addition, a large wedge-shaped atrium penetrates the drum, allowing for a central multi-purpose space, which can host performances, exhibitions, fairs, and product launches.  This atrium also acts as a huge display window towards EDSA, where people can glimpse the many activities and merchandise displays inside.

Rosa Clará 2014 Wedding Collection

Rosa Clara 2014 designed by the prestigious  Zuhair Murad

Rosa Clara 2014 designed by the prestigious Zuhair Murad

A Rose Like No Other

The Rosa Clara 2014 bridal collection is inspired by the beauty and femininity of women on the most important day of their lives. The looks are classic Rosa Clará: romantic, timeless, graceful, elegant.

 This collection was inspired by the wistful vibe, relaxed lines and unique embellishments of the dresses in the 1920s and influenced by the eclectic Art Deco style as evident in some of the wedding gowns, specifically from her SOFT by Rosa Clará line.  The designer herself walked down the aisle recently in a gown from her 2014 collection, CORAL, whose beadwork pattern is an ode to the memorable era.

Valor Chocolates: Behind The Pleasure

Valor Chocolate 1379207_10202135930501057_674565434_n fashionAtetheLawyer

Over 130 years of passion for chocolate and a voyage of over 12,000 miles to select three of the best cacaos in the world… that is the secret hiding behind the boundless pleasure experienced upon tasting a piece of Valor Chocolates. Pure chocolate, chocolate with Mediterranean Marcona almonds, hot chocolate, chocolate mousse, handmade and signature bonbons… Valor Chocolates’ palette of flavors is immense. This international brand, present in over 50 countries, makes all its bars in its facilities in Villajoyosa, Spain.

The result: the leading Spanish brand in the chocolate industry, producing over 13 million tons of sweets each year. That’s tons of pleasure!

Valor Chocolate 537770_10202136025623435_1749514655_n fashionAtetheLawyer

Valor Chocolates’ history is defined by a passion for a single product: the best chocolate. Behind this passion, we find a family of master chocolatiers who set up factory in 1881 led by Valeriano López Lloret, founder of the brand. He gave a name and personality to what has become the leading Spanish company in the chocolate industry and whose prestige has extended far beyond its borders.

Valor Chocolate 558924_10202135929301027_1544694352_n fashionAtetheLawyer

Currently, the brand continues to manufacture its entire “From Bean to Bar” range from its production plant in Villajoyosa, Spain. With over 235,000 square feet of state-of-the-art facilities, this factory produces 13 million tons of sweets each year. Bars and chocolate bonbons are exported to more than 50 countries, thanks to Valor Chocolates’ internationalization policy. This includes a major subsidiary in the United States, Valor Chocolates USA, Inc., that has been in existence for over a decade and is responsible for distributing its products throughout the Americas.

The Innovation Behind the Pleasure…

The pleasure that lies in each bite of Valor Chocolates is achieved, in part, by its commitment to innovation, one of the company’s fundamental pillars. Innovation that unites with tradition to amaze the most discerning palates. This year the brand has presented its new range of sugar-free bars, which are now sweetened with stevia, a natural sweetener derived from a plant originating in South America that is 15 times sweeter than sugar.

The sugar-free bars come in a broad range that is ideal for chocolate lovers who are watching their figures or need to control their sugar intake. They retain all the flavor and pleasure of the brand’s chocolate—without the sugar. They also come in an unbelievable array of sugar-free offerings: Dark; 70% Dark; Dark with Whole Marcona Almonds; Dark with Whole Hazelnuts; Dark with Chocolate Mousse Truffle; Milk Chocolate; Milk Chocolate with Whole Marcona Almonds; Milk Chocolate with Whole Hazelnuts; Milk Chocolate with Hazelnut Truffle Filling. They’re all amazing!

Another significant innovation is the brand’s exclusive Philippine launch of Valor Hazelnut Spread that comes in regular and sugar free variants. It is made with 13% hazelnuts and its sugar free variant is a delectable treat to diabetics or on a diet.

Valor has a wide range of portfolio that are still to come to the Philippine market. It recently created the Dessert Range, keeping in mind all those who love to prepare professional desserts at home, providing the best products to achieve recipe perfection.

Another significant innovation is the brand’s special attention to food intolerances and its broad range of gluten-free products. Its Lactose-Free Milk Chocolate Bars with the same milk chocolate goodness is ideal for those who are lactose-intolerant. The impressive Professional Range of Valor Chocolates—a large portfolio of products made using the best selection of the brand’s cacaos and chocolates, targeting connoisseurs of the confectionary world, a market with the highest standards made up of confectioners, pastry chefs and chefs, among others.

It is the Philippines’ first and only paparazzi-style magazine. But a clear and important distinction must be made here: We are not, and never will be, a tabloid or gossip magazine. One of Hola!’s most important standards and principles, of which we are mandated by the Spanish headquarters to uphold, is that we always establish a friendly relationship with anyone that we feature in the magazine — a relationship based on trust.
