Rampa na: Makati to stage Kasuotang Pilipino
The city government of Makati through its Museum and Cultural Affairs Office (MCAO) will be staging this year’s Kasuotang Pilipino fashion show on September 23 at 6pm at the Glorietta 2 Activity Center.
Makati Mayor Abby Binay expressed full support for the said event, which has become an annual event showcasing the creations of local designers to promote Filipino fashion representing the islands of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
“We fully support the event as it offers an opportunity for the people, especially the youth, to have a better appreciation of Filipino fashion that denotes our rich cultural heritage,” Binay said.
“At the same time, it serves as a venue for Makati-based fashion designers to share their ingenuity and distinctive style and receive the recognition they deserve,” she added.
According to MCAO, it has become a tradition in the city to stage the event in line with the nationwide celebration of “Linggo ng Kasuotang Pilipino”.
“The staging of Kasuotang Pilipino has become a much-anticipated event in Makati every September. It features the beautiful creations of talented Makati-based designers worn and modeled by city officials, senior citizens, and friends from the international community and the private sector,” MCAO said.
Kasuotang Pilipino 2016 will showcase the creations of 14 designers, all Makati-based. They are Therese Andaya, Albert Andrada, Niño Angeles, Ronaldo Arnaldo, Joel Bautista, Janet Castro, Noel Crisostomo, Frankie de Leon, Luis delos Santos, Albert Figueras, Jinggo Inoncillo, Kaye Morales, Raymund Saul, and Val Taguba.
