EVENT plan­ner/stylist

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Fun & Fearless -

CHRISTINE MATULAC, 29

Whether it’s wildly color­ful birth­days or trendy prod­uct launches, Oomph Styling’s oper­a­tions ex­pert turns clients’ dreams into re­al­ity. HOW it all be­gan: “I’ve al­ways been part of event plan­ning com­mit­tees, but I didn’t think I would make a ca­reer out of it. I got back from work­ing abroad and was try­ing to fig­ure out what to do next, but one night, my friends and I de­cided to com­bine our tal­ents and start an event styling com­pany!”

PERKS of THE Job: “You get to meet and work with peo­ple from all walks of life. I hate rou­tine and ev­ery party is dif­fer­ent. It’s al­ways nice to see our clients’ eyes light up when they first en­ter the room and see the re­sult of our hard work!”

not all FUN and games: “If the party goes smoothly, ev­ery­one will be talk­ing about it, but if some­thing goes wrong you’ll definitely hear about it, too! An­other chal­lenge is bal­anc­ing your clients’ expectations while stick­ing to their bud­get and timeline, with­out sac­ri­fic­ing de­sign and qual­ity.”

making it big: “Kind­ness goes a long way. Treat peo­ple well and you’ll see how far they’ll go to re­turn the lit­tle bit of kind­ness you’ve shown them. Es­tab­lish a net­work and main­tain those con­nec­tions; they’ll help a lot dur­ing crunch time!”
