5 Must-See Trends At Manila FAME
The source for Home, Holiday, and Fashion products
There’s nothing more beautiful than seeing stories come to life, most especially in everyday objects that serve as reminders of how they add value to life, define individuals, and inspire ideas.
At Manila FAME, the ultimate Philippine design and lifestyle event, shows just that through a wide range of high-concept Home, Holiday, and Fashion products that are designed and crafted locally for the global market. On its 64th season titled “Objects Matter,” be ready to feast your eyes with these five awe-inspiring must-see products and trends:
Modern weave trends
The creative collaboration of world-renown trend forecaster Edelkoort Etc. and Paris-based, Chilean-born design specialist Nelson Sepulveda produced a collection of new generation weaves for basketry and home furnishings. This Special Setting of Nelson’s designs that were manufactured by 16 different Philippine companies breathes life into local craftsmanship and materials.
One-of-a-kind local products
One of the highlights that displays the exquisite and unique traditions of each local region is OTOP (One Town/One Product) Marketplace presented by the Bureau of Domestic Trade Promotions (BDTP). This is done by promoting crafts of the regions through handmade household products, furniture, and even food from all the country’s regions.
An ode to the Peacock Chair
The Peacock Chair—a nostalgic staple of the Filipino home—is gratifyingly displayed in all its glory in this can’t-miss Special Setting. This is a full recollection of the Filipinos’ undying creative spirit and is a source of triumph and redemption. Collaborating in this special showcase are nine designers who brought forth their own interpretations of this iconic piece.
Fashion and furniture at Red Box
The flourishing fashion industry and dynamic furniture design by up-and-coming designers are showcased in the Red Box design program. The program, which is open to designers 21 to 30 years of age, juxtaposes unique fashion with cutting-edge furniture pieces. This season features young talents such as Jim Torres, Joseph Rastrullo, and Rachelle Dagñalan.
With the abundant supply of coconut trees in the country, it wouldn’t be a surprise if creative director and curator architect Gelo Mañosa and Japanese designer Wataru Sakuma of Masaeco Paper collaborated to come up with innovative ways to use this versatile raw material for home décor and architectural structures. Get inspired by the resourcefulness that is showcased in this exhibit.
The 64th Manila FAME: Objects Matter will run until Saturday, October 22, 2016 at the World Trade Convention Center Metro Manila, Pasay City from 9:00am to 7:00pm. For inquiries on how to register and visit the event, follow Manila FAME on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
