In celebration and support of the Filipino vision and craftsmanship, the bi-annual Manila Fashion Festival returned in a 5-day fashionable flair which was held at the Marqee Tent at EDSA Shangri-La on October 18-21 & 27, 2016.
“Manila Fashion Festival is here to highlight the changing landscape of Philippine fashion and hopefully all our fashion talents will be recognized by people outside the country and highlight them locally,” said founder and CEO of Art Personas Ronnie Cruz.
On the third day of the event, the collaboration between Manila Fashion Festival and Bobson Japan break new grounds as they launch the first Manila Fashion Festival Design Competition. A total of 15 talented and young designers have answered to the brand’s calling- #RedefineDenim.

The search for the next young designer to join the roster of talented fashion trailblazers has been ended. Wilbur Lang scored the 2nd place, Ernest Huiso bagged the 1st prize and CJ Martin was hailed as the grand prize winner of the first-ever MFF Design Competition.
Moreover, Manila Fashion Festival is in partnership with Paris Miki, the largest eyewear retailer in Japan by sales and number of stores.
Manila Fashion Festival also combines philanthropy and fashion in a one-of-a kind experience by supporting the Better Future Foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to provide aid for the less fortunate children. The runway will not only exhibit the image of the contemporary fashion scene, but it will also become a podium to mediate awareness of humanity’s contemporary struggles.
