Filipino Designer Joined UN Eco Runway

Oliver Tolentino, an international Filipino designer who had made remarkable works for known Hollywood VIPs including 1978 Miss Universe Margaret Gardiner, had joined the 28 other international couturiers  along with RTW  brands and accessory designers. Guess what? He is the only Filipino designer to join the fashion show of United Nation with the strong message of "stylish sustainability."  

Filipino  fashion works are quite unique especially the ones that are crafted through Mother Nature's handmade. These include Filipiniana gowns and Barong Tagalog made from pineapple and abaca leaves.  

We are certainly proud that another  Filipino is hailed for his works and craftsmanship!
