FEATHERED headpieces, long strings of beads, Spectator shoes, cloche hats, and Bakelite bangles, are truly the amrk of the 1920s Great Gatsby fashion.

It is a decadent history known for its extravagant fashion and style. This was evidently portrayed when the leading health, wellness and beauty retailer brand, Watsons held its HWB 2023 Awards at the Shangri-la Fort Grand Ballroom on May 12, 2023.

Watsons made this year’s HWB Awards titled, “A Night of Thousand Smiles” even more remarkable. After all, it was a great comeback of the most prestigious awards night in a grandiose venue after three years of virtual gatherings. It was a one-night affair where the movers and shakers from the Health, Wellness and Beauty industry came in full force and sashayed their well-planned outfits fabulously.

This year’s HWB Awards centered on giving back their deepest appreciation to their suppliers for all the support they’ve given to Watsons all throughout the years and helping them achieve on giving a smile to their customers’ faces. This awards night was also pivotal in strengthening the bond among their suppliers for their shared passion of providing the best products moving forward.

The event kicked off with a surprise opening song number and the "Leaders’ Parade" from the Watsons’ Leadership team headed by none other than the Managing Director, Danilo S. Chiong. All of them gleefully singing onstage Barry Manilow’s hit, “Can’t Smile Without You."

In the same event, the new Watsons’ hymn was also introduced during the awards night.

This year’s HWB Awards also highlighted the eye-opening discussion dubbed as "DARE" Forum spearheaded by Watsons' Chief Operating Officer, Jefferson Go. Seated on the panel were Watsons Directors Sonny Cuenco (Trading Health), Kim Reyes (Trading Beauty), Jared De Guzman (Customer Marketing) and Sharon Decapia (Marketing Controller). The forum discussed Watsons' milestones especially during the pandemic and how it will progressively steer upwards in the future through their D-ifferent, A-nywhere, R-elationship, E-xperience approach.
