Manila FAME's 66th edition highlights Philippine culture, design and ingenuity

As the country’s premier design and lifestyle event, Manila FAME has worked towards promoting the Philippines as a reliable sourcing destination for home, fashion, holiday, architectural, and interior pieces. Through its shows, it continually supports seasoned and emerging design talents and small and medium enterprises as they present their work to the global exports market.

The show has stood as blank canvas on which the country’s esteemed designers embellish their best works to present an accurate reflection of the Philippines’ vibrant and multi-layered cultural heritage.

For its 66th edition, Manila FAME strips down to its roots, a show built upon the intertwine of Philippine culture, design excellence, and export promotions. On October 20-22 at the World Trade Center Metro Manila and the Philippine International Trade Center Exhibit Hall, join us as we present the crème de la crème of the Philippine lifestyle and design industry in a showcase of the country’s rich cultural heritage and its unwavering resilience against the test of time.

No less than eight show features will be included in the upcoming show. New Generation Weaves, a staple of Manila FAME for the past three editions, will return with Paris-based design specialist Nelson Sepulveda at the helm. Sepulveda will work with more than 30 small and medium enterprises to invoke harmony and balance through Philippine craftsmanship and the beauty of natural raw materials.

GREAT Women Project 2 will also return to highlight the works of women artisans across the country. The project was launched by the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) in partnership with the DTI Project Management Team and is funded by the Canadian International Development Agency.

World-renowned designer Tony Gonzalez will also have his own curated setting that will marry the strengths of each Manila FAME participant to create a versatile collection made to match a variety of material requirements, techniques, and price points. Design Commune: Patterns and Palettes will be presented in four themes: Blues and Whites, Ethnic Nomads, Green Tinted, and Natural Black and White.

And to top it all, Philippine treasure and Buscalan's pride, Apo Whang-Od, the last mambabatok or tattoo artist comes to Manila FAME.

“Small and medium enterprises from across our country will join us in October to showcase the best artisanal products the Philippines has to offer,” Tugonon added. “Through Manila FAME, we will work towards supporting the success of our artisans and uplifting the Philippine brand internationally.”
