Prospero World presented the first ever London Philippine Fashion Show last March 8, 2012, Thursday at the Victoria House. The show highlighted fashion for higher causes, those being educational projects by the Ayala Foundation. Featured designers included Joyce Makitalo, Cary Santiago, Lulu Tan Gan, Pepito Albert, Rajo Laurel, Randy Ortiz, Wynn Wynn Ong, Federico de Vera, Silk Cocoon, Bergamo, Celestina, Josie Natori Couture, Lesley Mobo, Michael Cinco and London-based designer, Jasper Garvida. Here are just some of the outfits featured during the show.
The event was graced by Princess Marie Chantal and Prince Pavlos of Greece. Also in attendance during the event was Ayala Corporation's Fernando Zobel de Ayala. The show also featured cultural dances, artifacts and artwork depicting Filipinos in the 1800s. Goes to show how much Filipino talented is appreciated - from our local shores, to the U.S., U.A.E. and now, London.
