The long-running trade show Manila FAME (or Furnishings and Apparel Manufacturers’ Exchange) will hold its first event for the year starting today until Sunday, April 24 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
As expected, Manila FAME: Boutique Edition will showcase export-quality designer pieces for the home, holiday, and fashion sectors. The affair’s theme is “Iridescence” to highlight the colorful character of Asian lifestyle and design.
One highlight is the Artisans Village which will feature the work of local artisans and master craftsmen highly skilled in weaving, wood carving, metal forging, and other various forms of traditional crafts.
Another thing to look forward to is the presentation called “Spring Forward” where furniture designer and interior design consultant Ito Kish interprets a green space with hanging light bulbs, to reflect the versatility and potential of Philippine products.
“Y’ARI”, on the other hand, is a multi-faceted assistance program which provides Philippine exporters, manufacturers, and designers a full range of design and
product development services.
The program brings together local and international designers and business experts, as well as both young and seasoned industry players to create finely
crafted products in the home and fashion sectors designed for the global market.
Red Box,featuring the works of junior designers Joseph Rastrullo and Rachelle Dagñalan, will also take place under the mentorship of Budji Layug, Manila FAME creative director.
Manila FAME is organized by the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions, the export promotions arm of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).
