Makati lights up holidays with native fabric flair

/ 05:25 AM November 05, 2017

It’s going to be a native Christmas in the country’s premier business and lifestyle district this year.


Makati City has turned on its streetlights to welcome the holiday season as a Filipino Christmas wonderland, with larger-than-life Yuletide symbols featuring the patterns of native woven fabrics, such as the Inabel and Burdado of Luzon, Banig Tikogo of Visayas, and T’Boli, Ukol and Yakan of Mindanao.

Behind these sparkling attractions along Ayala Avenue, Paseo de Roxas, and Makati Avenue is Zenas Pineda, an interior designer specializing in visual merchandising and events styling.


Over the last eight years, Makati has kept this tradition alive together with Ayala Land, the country’s leading developer of sustainable estates. This year’s display is using energy-efficient Firefly LED lights.

“We want to make sure that everyone in Makati experiences something special this season. To bring together the community in the spirit of celebration, we hold a spectacular Christmas display that everyone will delight in. We also hold our signature events that bring people together and make them enjoy the spirit of the season,” said Shiella Aguilar, Ayala Land Project Development Head for Makati.
