Long before brand collaborations, international design stars, or even the Internet, there was Manila FAME (Furniture and Apparel Manufacturers Exchange). The bi-annual design fair has been a laboratory of sorts for designers for the past 35 years, and is the launching pad of local design trends and more recently, important social advocacies. Here’s what to expect at its April 19 to 21 run:
