Weaving The Future

The Fashion and Design Council of the Philippines' Weaving The Future design competition winners Roland Alzate and Adante Leyesa have arrived. Alzate's collection consists of shift dresses with very couture rose and leaf details. Going rosy as well with his line of accessories, Leyesa uses pineapple fabric, beads and metal. It is heartwarming to know that both designers are working with livelihood communities, providing jobs to weavers and handicrafts men. Indeed, everything's coming up roses for Philippine fashion and the people that weave them.
