Manila FAME also continues the Manila Wear collection in the Fashion Pavilion which will be curated by internationally renowned designer Josie Natori. Manila Wear positions the Philippine fashion industry to cater to an emerging set of global fashionistas living the jet-set-meets-gypsy lifestyle.


From scarves made from handloom fabric with gold leather inserts to an exclusive clutch featuring textured shell inlay and meticulous metalsmithing to bold fashion jewelry and gift items using irregularly cut stone handcrafted by brass artisans using the ancient lost wax method, Manila Wear offers a fresh take on a more individualized and personal style of fashion to cater to a world opposite that of fast fashion, conspicuous consumption and the age of excess.


On focus are designers JC Buendia, Rajo Laurel, Dennis Lustico, Jojie Lloren, Jun Artajo, Maco Custodio, Adante Leyesa, Oj Hofer,  Randy Ortiz,  Lulu Tan Gan,  Lally Dizon, Kristine Dee,  Emi Jorge,  Hindy Tantoco,  Ken Samudio,  Dita Sandico-Ong,  Malou Romero,  Nicole Whisenhunt, Joyce Makitalo,  Yako Reyes, Janice Minor,  Arnel Papa, Patrice Ramos –Diaz,  Joel Escober,  Amina Aranaz, under the curatorial leadership of Josie C. Natori.
