PHOTOS: Highlights from Manila FAME, March 2015

Giving a new meaning to conversation piece

( Chic contemporary take on local fabric, a platform for small and medium enterprises under One Town, One Product, and a tangible take on the United Nation’s declaration of 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies await design enthusiasts at Manila FAME 2015 at the SMX Convention Center.


The design and lifestyle event runs from March 13 to 16, with the first two days designated as a period of perusal. Take your time and get touchy with the carefully curated artifacts per booth. Explore the different materials-from wood to upcycled paper turned into waterproof origami-and take notes on the new trends. Above all, this edition of Manila FAME invites you to listen to products with stories to tell.
