There’s no denying Filipinos are bursting with talent and creativity. It is impossible to run out of new artists; there are always budding talents. The fashion designers of the 5th Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival (PMFF) proved that once more with their creations. Here are the highlights during the four-day fashion event that showcased world-class designs.

Day 1: Star Studded Collection

The first day of PMFF started off with creations from Philippine fashion's brightest stars like Yong Davalos, Cheetah Rivera, Chris Diaz, Dino Lloren, Steph Tan, Prima Villarama and Jaz Cerezo. There were a couple of “oohs” and “aahs” from the crowd, and the reactions intensified when Hello, I Love You Goodbye star Alden Richards graced the runway. He showcased pieces from Avel Bacudio’s collection.

Day 2: The SoFA Designers, Ministry of Silk, Khang, and ARIN

PMFF continues to provide a platform for budding designers. The fashion event gave the runway for the top six students of the School of Fashion and Arts (SoFA), marking a milestone in their beginnings in the industry. PMFF also paved the way for the designers of Laos, the Ministry of Silk and Khang. They showcased their couture, filling the runway with international designs.

And of course, the day won't be complete without Art Persona's own brand, ARIN. This year, they have the collection named Uitwaaien, a dutch phrase that means "to walk in the wind."
