Fashion lovers gathered last September 21-23, 2019 at the SMX Convention Center SM Aura for the Philippine Fashion Revolution 2019. The world witnessed the beauty and elegance of Philippine Weaves fused with typical fabrics in today’s modern world.
With over 93 designers and 120 local and foreign models showcasing the indigenous weaves from the different regions of the Philippines, it really shows the different interpretations of the Modern Katutubo.
The Philippine Fashion Revolution proved that cloth weaving is not a dying art. In fact, it is more alive than ever. No longer relegated or limited to indigenous tribes, woven clothing can now be worn by the modern Filipinos.
It can be incorporated in office wear, cocktails, evening gowns, accessories, and even shoe wear. In fact, one of the rising trends in bridal wear is to have a piece of woven fabric as part of the veil or outer layer of a bridal gown.
