grace & greatness

his year has been truly a T challenging time for all of us. Whatever industry, socio-economic group or age you might belong to, we all encountered something unprecedented and it changed our lives forever. On top of the pandemic, the year was also riddled with brazen social injustices, cultural tragedies and natural calamities that affected, once again, all of us. With all of that, it’s easy to simply call out and cancel 2020, but despite all these terrible circumstances, I hope we still find a way to see beyond all the ugliness and heartaches we’ve experienced this year.

the art of life

“This bud of love, by summer’s ripening breath, may prove a beauteous flower when we next meet.” That’s William Shakespeare likening love to that of a blossoming flower.

Now that we’re coming to terms with all the changes, it’s time to adapt. Can’t go shopping? Add to cart through their website. Can’t host a show for your collection? Launch an Instagram filter or create a fashion film. That’s how the industry’s been catching up: building a system on what technology, and society, provides.

true to tradition

1 JOR-EL ESPINA The modern Filipiniana has been Jor-el Espina’s foundation for his namesake brand. Combining tradition with more contemporary designs and silhouettes, Espina finds himself in a special place in furthering the conversation of Filipino design identity. One of his special pieces is the bomberong which is a barong and bomber jacket hybrid that eases traditional piña fabric to an everyday piece. An ArteFino fair favorite, Espina also makes bomberong ternos for women that feature the iconic butterfly sleeves that is perfect for the holidays. From reinventing the traditional kimona to modernizing Filipino embroidery into protective masks, Espina is very much in touch with the present fashion landscape but is continuously inspired by traditions that have built the Filipino design identity 2 KAAYO Marga Nograles has always loved fashion. At a very…
