Weaving the Future of Philippine Fashion

A mini fashion show with modern Filipino designs by FDCP members and past Philippine Fashion Design Competition winners using local weaves like piña, jusi, abaca, etc. was presented to the press, along with “Weaving The Future” ambassadors Amina Aranaz-Alunan, Tweetie de Leon-Gonzalez and Mons Romulo.
The “Weaving the Future” competition is comprised of several stages, the first of which required applicants to submit design entries (three design entries of a 3-5 piece mini collection for apparel, and three design entries of a single piece for accessories/ home decor).  Applicants were also asked to submit a developmental business plan that includes materials used, positive impact on the community, projected profits, etc.  The aim is to develop designers who are not only talented, but who are aware of the social and environmental impact of their designs.

  1. Benjie Pascual Alvarez
  2. Concordio Sison Sajorda, Jr.
