(SPOT.ph) 2022 is marked as the return of our favorite art fairs, community bazaars, and other live events that we missed out on at the height of the pandemic. One of them is PURVEYR Fair, which is formerly known as Pursuit Fair from 2016 to 2019, happening from November 18 to 19 at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura Premier, Bonifacio Global City. Dubbed "a gathering on creativity and culture," PURVEYR Fair aims to showcase fashion brands, independent artists, retail concepts, and other creative collectives through a marketplace set-up.
