When Tatler was first published, Bench was a 14-year-old company at the cusp of its own corporate breakthroughs. It was the same year that we launched Bench Fix Salon, opened our first Bench Body store in Shanghai and published our Pinoy Pop Culture book. A lot of these milestones are chronicled on the pages of Tatler with epic visual storytelling and insightful writing that have remained a golden standard in magazine publishing.
Two decades have passed and the world has changed but we remain thankful for growing and celebrating together. Congratulations Tatler! See you in the next decade; we are glad to be with you in the new world.
To be able to mark two strong decades given the challenges faced all-around is a testament to the calibre of the Tatler team. For any enterprise to survive in this economy, let alone thrive in this setting where there has been so much industry disruption even before the pandemic is no small feat. Therefore, my sincere congratulations to you as you celebrate 20 successful years driven by passion in your craft. Tatler has prided itself on being “the best of power, influence and style”, and on the celebration of your two decades, I applaud you for using those three elements to inspire and to be a force for change. Here’s to more success and innovation as you enter your next 20 and more. Happy 20th anniversary!
I remember perfectly when the Tatler was launched in the Philippines 20 years ago and all the excitement and expectation it caused. I was happy to have contributed then as fashion and beauty editor in 2001 before moving abroad. Even when I left, there was nothing more fun than unpacking a fresh copy of Tatler every month, lingering for a few hours reading articles and interviews, seeing all the familiar faces of Manila’s society and keeping up with the trends and happenings back home. The content is always interesting and relevant. The annual charity balls are epic fun and raise important awareness to the chosen foundations through well organised fundraising. More power Tatler! All the best to the team. You have excelled in your endeavours. May you have many more years to celebrate!
