Dear Oxford Business Group Subscribers,
MANILA FAME POSITIONS THE PHILIPPINES AS ASIA’S DESIGN TRENDSETTER
Manila FAME, Asia’s Design and Lifestyle Event, is one of the country’s premier trade show and UFI-approved trade fair in the Philippines. Now on its third decade, Manila FAME continues to offer high-quality export products in furniture and furnishings, holiday gifts and décor, and fashion, all designed, developed, and manufactured in the Philippines.
Slated on 14-17 October 2013 at the SMX Convention Center, Manila FAME will put the spotlight on the collaboration between the country’s leading creative entrepreneurs in the Design for Exports and Red Box special settings.
Now on its 2nd year, Manila Wear, through Manila FAME, continues to uphold artisanal fashion through a special setting that underscores the use of the country’s abundant natural materials. Manila Wear is a branding initiative for apparel and fashion accessories that aims to create a design sensibility that is purely Filipino and synonymous with tropical/resort wear, headlined by a select group of Filipino fashion designers creating extraordinary pieces for the global market.
Manila FAME presents various event highlights such as the Neotextiles Philippines, a vibrant display of contemporary Philippine textiles crafted from sustainable fibers by local weaving communities; the Craft Spots, a visual narration of Filipino artisans transforming the sustainable and versatile abaca fiber through live demonstrations of age-old craft techniques; the Top Brands in Motion, a show feature that puts the spotlight on the country’s homegrown retail brands ready for the overseas markets.
Manila FAME will also be hosting the Katha Awards under its partner event, the Design Week Philippines. The Katha Awards, considered as one of the most prestigious award in the Philippine design scene, is a platform where Philippine product design and innovation is recognized. Its goal is to give distinction to ingenious designs and encourage exporters to raise their design standards for Philippine export products as well as to pursue a skillful exploration of new materials and processes.
