PHILIPPINE FOLKLORE: REDEFINING TALES
Curated by award-winning theatre designer Gino Gonzales, the Philippines exhibition at the International Fashion Showcase is an allusion to the mystery and melodrama of Philippine folk tales.
Here, six young Filipino designers investigate new shapes and forms in a theatrical and thought provoking rendition of mythical creatures from Philippine folklore. These mythical creatures evoked both irrational fear and obsessive fascination among the Filipino folks of old, and have been a rich source of captivating tales and legends that dominated culture and society.
Designers include: Jaggy Glarino, John Herrera, Ken Samudio, Michelline Syjuco, Renan Pacson, Tony Evan.
