FILIPINXT isn't just about clothes, though. Marriott Hotel Manila is joining the party, showcasing their popular bridal event, "Marry Me at Marriott." But with a twist! In NYC, "Marry Me at Marriott" will be reborn as the "Gratus Philippine Gala," a fancy celebration of love stories and all of life's big moments.
FILIPINXT isn't just about fashion design, either. They're highlighting Filipino talent across the board. Yancy Trinidad, a Filipino producer, will be directing the show, and filmmaker Kenneth Anderson will be there to capture all the behind-the-scenes action.

“Our goal is to bring the ingenuity of Filipino talent and, hopefully, get them recognized by the mainstream market,” Bessie says. “We want to bring this to the New York Fashion Week scene.”
"It's Filipino designers' time to shine on the world stage," says Rob Mallari-D'Auria. "FILIPINXT is giving them the platform they deserve to show off their talent and compete with the best."
