“Candy has grown with Lifestyle Asia. She has been featured countless times in the magazine. One can  say that Lifestyle Asia is genuinely in her DNA. Aside from her status in society and the industry, family  background, and global connections, Candy is at a point in her life where she wants to give back and  provide meaningful content, beyond luxury living, to the next generation.” 

Under Dizon’s leadership, Carrasco adds that he’s optimistic about the publication soaring higher on the  global stage. “I am excited and looking forward to experiencing the title from a new perspective. It’s time  for a Filipino magazine to be seen worldwide, and with Candy at the helm, Lifestyle Asia will be the  pioneer,” he adds.

“Candy and her family have appeared in Lifestyle Asia numerous times and have grown up with the  brand. Her experience and expertise in bespoke luxury pieces have allowed her mastery of what appeals  to the market. Aside from her know-how in jewelry, her fine taste is innate and includes points of interest  such as travel, fashion, and home— pillars that make up the brand,” says Peewee Isidro–Reyes, vice  president for Content of One Mega Group. 

“Aside from this, she is also adept with the emerging youth and cuts across generations. She will  definitely bring new energy to Lifestyle Asia.
