StyleFestPH 2019 highlights Filipino creativity and craftsmanship

StyleFestPH 2019 kicked off at the Garden Pavillion of Grand Hyatt in BGC. Even if rain was pouring really hard, fashionistas and stylish guests couldn't be stopped to witness the new designers & leading names in the fashion industry.

For those who don't know, StyleFestPH 2019 is a project created by 0918 Lifestyle, the tech & fashion brand of Globe and SAGA Events, the country's premiere events company which aims to celebrate and cultivate Filipino creativity and craftsmanship. Now in its second year, StyleFestPH is becoming one of the country's biggest fashion event for 2019. Eight Finalists will start a two-month Design Mentorship Program (DMP) with some of the leading names in the fashion industry as their mentors. 
The eight finalists -- Ia Coca, Neil Anthonie, Adrian Sagahun, Bessie Besana, Justine Llarena, Bea Guerrero, Einar Nicdao and Austeen Soriano -- will now go to the next and most important phase in their careers as they learn from fashion icon Inno Sotto; fashion darling Carl Jan Cruz; fashion stylist Sidney Yap; Paulo Campos, Zalora founder and CEO; and Leah De Guzman, head of 0917 Lifestyle. The eight finalists will present their line in the runway on November 5. Two winners, one each, will be chosen to collaborate with 0917 Lifestyle and Zalora.

“Globe Telecom, through 0917 Lifestyle, has always been supportive in the development of the country’s fashion industry-- its new blood, the awe-inspiring ideas and the bold designs that keep it alive. StyleFestPH 2019 is our way to give our young designers a venue to express their creativity and provide them the means to reach a wider local audience and even the international market,” Leah De Guzman, Head of 0917 Lifestyle, says. 

Aside from the DMP, StyleFestPH 2019 will also offers a wide array of activities that include trend talks, designers on spotlight, runway shows and shopping parties from November 4, 5 and 6, 2019. Now that's too hot to let it pass so better mark your calendars!

There's also the “Designers on Spotlight” where guests can gain insights and inspirations from the industry’s success stories, this will highlight important aspects of fashion and digital business. The first part dubbed “Roots” will focus support for local artisans and in promoting the use of culturally rich clothing such as jusi and t’nalak featuring designers Paloma Zobel, Chris Nick and Mark Bumgarner on November 4. 
Boom Sason, on the other hand, will talk about promoting and championing body confidence through the way she designs her line on November 5, while Bang Pineda takes the limelight on November 6. We even got a sneak peek on some of the 0917 x Bang collection and I think I already saw some of the pieces there that I like. I can't wait how creative it will be when Bang goes beyond shirts & caps.
The three-day fashion event also will also have its unique ”see now buy now” aspect after each runway show. Selected items from existing collections of the five designers will also be available for purchase by the audience. 

Finally, Fashion SNOOPS will share its fashion forecasts that will shape the consumer market on November 6. Fashion Snoops, a global trend forecasting company, will also provide fashion industry movers the knowledge how to strategize and make a campaign work.
