Inno Sotto, Pauline Juan, Laureen Uy + more at the PEFTA 2013 Opening
<em>Preview </em> unveils the shortlist for this year’s PEFTA
(SPOT.ph) At this year’s Preview Emerging Fashion Talent Awards (PEFTA), creativity isn’t forced, it’s innate, fluid, whimsical, and all sorts of bold. On display at SM Aura until today, September 24, are six-piece collections by 10 budding design talents that are part of the shortlist unveiled by Preview.
The 10 talents take inspiration from a range of aesthetics, everyday items, and culture. From the aerodynamics of sports cars by Pristine de Guzman, geometric elements by Geoffrey Zordilla, an oriental-themed collection by Tony Evan, to androgyny by Alexandra Cheng, the collections are undoubtedly award-winning.
The other talents include Bea Samson, Kevin del Poso, Marian Zara Madayag, Bien Santiago, Adante Leyesa and sisters Neeresh, Sureen, and Reshnee Bhagwandas of DAS Shoes.
Spotted among the crowd were Laureen Uy, Preview’s Pauline Juan, Vince Uy, and Daryl Chang, and legendary designer Inno Sotto. Check the gallery below to view the PEFTA 2013 Awardees collection.
