Because Filipino fashion needs a good shake up
Fashion and Filipino are two words that go hand-in-hand—and not just because of the alliteration. Some local talents (whether designer, stylist or model) have been recognized on the international stage for all the right reasons. So why not keep the train running while the coal is still hot and up the ante? Thanks to Globe and SAGA Events Inc., there is room to do just that.
Everyone, meet stylefestph’s Designer Mentorship Program.
All interested designers are encouraged to apply from now until May 25. Mechanics and administrative paperwork aside, all you need to bring to the table is a sense of and vision for Street Style. If you have that, then you’re a perfect candidate and the stylecouncil is eager to meet you.
Eight (8) designers will be chosen among the applicants and will be mentored by these experts, each of who have expertise in all the different stages of apparel creation: Design and Development, as well as Technical and Production Process.
