Then make way for Manila Fashion Festival

October 21st, 2015

Spotted at last week’s Red Charity Gala was Philippine Fashion Week producer and fashion director Joey Espino who told InterAksyon that Philippine Fashion Week won’t happen till November.

For those on the local fashion beat, the gala sort of gets the ball rolling for the wave of fashion events that unfold in October. After the luxurious dinner and fashion event comes Fashion Week and the relatively new Manila Fashion Festival.

Amid rumors that Espino’s Fashion Week will no longer be staged, the director told InterAksyon that the shows are currently undergoing some restructuring and promises to offer something exciting when it gets staged next month.

Established in 1997 by Espino and his brother Audie, it continues to be biggest fashion event in the country and features seasoned and accomplished Filipino fashion designers along with rising talents in the industry as well.

Manila Fashion Festival’s third edition

Meanwhile, another fashion event drawing attention is Manila Fashion Festival that has so far successfully staged two seasons’ worth of shows beginning last year. Organized by Art Personas and founded by its CEO Ronnie Cruz, Manila Fashion Festival brings in a vigorous energy on the runway with its list of talented young designers to watch especially in the ready-to-wear category.

The festival unfolds on October 22 to 25 at The Eye located at the very hip and trendy Green Sun Hotel in Makati City.

For its Spring/Summer 2016 shows slated this week, Manila Fashion Festival has collaborated with Swiss watchmaking brand Bomberg in presenting the shows. Other attractions include the Face of the Philippines search for aspiring models, the return of the SOMA Store booths featuring the participating designers’ creations on sale, and the graduation show of Fashion Institute of the Philippines.

The festival will also feature established accessory designers, Mia Arcenas and Ann Ong. Seasoned designers Avel Bacudio and Randy Ortiz will be presenting their collections, too. FINO Leatherware will be presenting for the first time its newest collection while Art Personas’ in-house fashion label, ARIN, returns with its third collection.

Trendy sock label Proppy Manila has collaborated with the Manila Fashion Festival designers for its limited edition collection that will be sold at the SOMA booths.

So which fashion gathering to attend? The more the merrier, goes the cliché, because it could only benefit the fashion community. And in the age of Instagram-worthy #ootds, the question may no longer be what’s trendy this season, but whose creations and vision will truly stand the test of real time.
