Another year, another showcase of Filipino talent, innovation, and creativity. To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival, they’re embracing the theme 'Celebrate Fashion, Celebrate Life' by bringing out new talents and designs that show the lively fashion and design scene. Here’s what you can expect at this year’s biggest fashion event in Manila.
A Display of Sustainable Fashion
With a rising interest in sustainable fashion, PMFF is bringing more awareness to the movement this year. In collaboration with San Miguel Light and Philippine Textile Research Institute (PTRI). The organisation is providing sustainable fabric for the festival and challenged designer Yong Davalos to create an entire collection from it. We’ll see the results of this on Day 4 of the festival.
New Creations By Young Blood
As one of the most influential fashion events in the Philippines, PMFF is the cradle for a lot of young talents in the fashion industry. This season, they will be featuring the top six fashion graduates from the School of Fashion and Arts (SoFA) Design Institute during the event.
We will also witness the sixth Face of the Philippines contest, which aims to discover the new up-and-coming fashion models of the year. From extreme makeovers to creative photoshoots, the finalists are competing to show the best of their modelling capabilities. The winner will be announced on the third day of the festival.
A Series of Educational Material
This year, there will be a segment for beauty enthusiasts called Panasonic Beauty Lifestyle Talks. Aiming to inspire and educate beauty enthusiasts, these workshop/seminars will cover topics such as hairstyling, make-up application, fashion photography, and fashion entrepreneurship.
