The Purist Age

I take deep pride in the Filipino talent. In the last twenty years, Philippine design has evolved from ornate to pure. Chairs that seem to float on air, coats in the most gossamer of fabrics, neck pieces that are rich yet unostentatious. These define the new Filipino purist aesthetic, see and feel the tide at the Manila FAME, 14-17 March 2012 at the SMX Convention Center, Manila.
