Along with the rest of the world, the fashion industry continues to grow and evolve. While we think we have already seen every trend and style imaginable, there are still a lot of surprises courtesy of the creative minds in the industry. So, what’s next?

Continuing the trend of providing an avenue for lovers of fashion to take inspiration from meticulously designed and crafted pieces, Manila Fashion Festival is set to give the world a peek at what’s next from our country’s creative fashion designers. Here are the things to watch out for.


Amazing shows

Showcasing their talents and craftsmanship, the creme de la creme of the fashion industry will share their latest creations at The Marquee at EDSA Shangri-la Manila. The four-day event will feature a roster of esteemed designers as well as a new breed of tastemakers.

On the first day of the event, fans will see creations by Pablo Cabahug, Azucar, Cheetah Rivera, Jaz Cerezo, and Veejay Floresca. The second day will feature shows by Darirué, Reyna Chukada, ESME, Mae-Ann Veloso, CJ Martin, PHILIPS, Jinggay Serag, Anthony Ramirez, ARIN, Daryl Maat, and Martin Bautista.

The last day of the event will feature shows by Randy Ortiz, BARBA, Rhett Eala, and Folded & Hung.

Beauty Trends

Aside from fashion trends, MFF will also be a venue for lovers of beauty to see what trends will dominate the season. With makeup looks by MAC Cosmetics artists and hair styles created by artists from Folded & Hung’s Famous Salon, trends are sure to be set and show-stopping looks are sure to dominate.


New Breed of Designers

The Manila Fashion Festival is not just a place for designers who have already been part of the industry for quite some time to update their fans on what’s the latest from them. The event is also an avenue for a new breed of designers to show the world what they are made of. This year, MFF will hold a show featuring a batch of designers who will graduate from the School of Fashion and the Arts. Apart from that, aspiring designers who want to bring their talents to the forefront not just in the country but the rest of Southeast Asia can join the AirAsia Runway Ready Designers Search. Two hopefuls will get the chance to showcase their work at the 2017 Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week in August.
