    The Red Charity Gala is an “annual benefit charity fashion event which highlights the creativity and craftsmanship of Filipino fashion designers. Started in 2009, it first featured the collection of designer Dennis Lustico. For the past years, the Red Charity Gala was made for the benefit of Philippine Red Cross, a health and humanitarian organization, and also for Assumption High School Batch 1981 Foundation.  Since it started, they have already featured several well-known fashion designers such as Furne One in 2010, world-renowned fashion designer Michael Cinco in 2011, master couturier Cary Santiago in 2012, Dubai-based Filipino designer Ezra Santos in 2013, and Project Runway Philippines mentor Jesus Lloren.
