Manila FAME, Design Week Philippines, October 2015

This is the fourth year I've been actively involved with Manila FAME. For this season, I curated the Manila Wear bridal setting for design masters Rajo Laurel, Randy Ortiz, and Rhett Eala, millennials Joel Escober and Happy Andrada, and breakthrough designers John Herrera, JaggyGlarino and Tony Evan.
The Philippines, in the recent past has produced very inspired designs in furniture and fashion accessories. I believe, a lot of credit goes to Josie Natori, Kenneth Cobonpue and Budji Layug for leading the pack. Untiringly working with the design community are Secretary Gregorio Domingo and Department of Trade and Industry, and Rosvi Gaetos and CITEM.
Kudos to the Filipino designer for persevering and for showing the world our brand of excellence.
