Philippine Fashion Designer Cora Manimbo and Fashion Jeweler Oscar Atendido wowed audiences with their works during the "Power Fashion Show for a Cause" in Moscow, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said. In a news release on Saturday, the DFA said the fashion show was held at the Eight and a Half Dollar Restaurant-Café-Bar in Moscow last September 23, 2011.
The show was a project of the Asia-Pacific Women's Group (APWG) of Moscow and the Filipino organization Bayanihan ng Bayan ni Juan. The DFA said proceeds of the fashion show were for the benefit of the special children of Tretyakov and the adopted orphanages of the APWG, a group of ladies based in Moscow led by the spouses of the Ambassadors to Russia from 21 Asia-Pacific countries.
Manimbo has designed dresses not only for Philippine Fashion clients but also those of other nationalities, including royal members in Asia. For the fashion show in Moscow, the DFA said Manimbo featured her creative interpretations of traditional Philippine dresses like the baro't saya and terno, using indigenous Philippine fabrics with intricate embroidery and beadwork. Meanwhile, Atendido, who also directed the fashion show, showcased his Philippine handcrafted filigree fashion jewelry collection, wrought in gold and handcrafted in an alley of silver and copper electroplated in 24-karat gold.
