About usOne-stop haven of unique Masterpieces for LEASE


The Event Curators, Inc. has been established as an events company in 2017. Prior to its launch, its flagship design studio, Masterpieces of Joy- Events and Design Studio has been in service since 2012 as a brainchild of Joanne Cariaso-Gacayan.


Joanne hails from San Fernando City, La Union. She is a graduate of Bachelor of Fine Arts major in Advertising at the College of the Holy Spirit, Manila. After working as Fashion Designer at Linea Bianca, Inc. for a couple of years, Joanne and her family left to study at Scuola Loreto, Loppiano, Florence, Italy.

She was one of the design pioneers specializing in event styling in the country shortly upon her arrival from Italy in 1999, and after her residency at Rustan’s Commercial Corporation as Visual Merchandising Designer/ Manager for the Cosmetics and Toiletries Division in 2005.

Since then, Masterpieces of Joy- Events and Design Studio had grown steadily as a small enterprise with the great privilege to be trusted by great clientelle such as The Makati Business Club for APEC CEO 2015, Rustans Commercial Corporation, Citibank, L’Oreal Philippines, ABC 5, ABS-CBN, Estee Lauder Group, Avon, Ogawa Philippines and several private individuals.

Believing in the potential to make a difference in the design industry, Joanne’s husband, Manny, joined the company, and later on her eldest son, Igino, and friends- Cara Alviar and Interior Designer Menchi Tantoco.



As we’ve matured, The Vision had taken wider horizons.

As we’ve grown, The Dream became a Mission.

As we’ve worked with others more, we started to see that Masterpieces could be a collaboration of people with passion for beauty and a drive for true service—thus, the evolution to becoming The Event Curators, Inc.
