MaArte Presents #PinoyManCave at The Peninsula Manila 2018
Now on its 10th edition, the MaArte Fair, organized by the Museum Foundation of the Philippines, Inc. (MFPI), highlights the men in our lives by creating a Pinoy Man Cave. Bazaar lovers can look forward to the return of their favorite tradition: the annual MaArte Fair, to be held from August 10 to 12, 2018 at The Peninsula Manila in Makati City.
The 10th edition of the MaArte Fair promises to be more interesting this year. The annual fundraising event opens on August 10 at The Gallery of The Peninsula Manila, as the range of products and accessories will be more “inclusive” with rare items that will be interesting for the Filipino Gentleman.
According to Albert Avellana, President of the Museum Foundation of the Philippines, Inc. (MFPI), the move to invite exhibitors offering unique finds for men was due to an observation that a lot of husbands and boyfriends attending previous fairs just ended up holding shopping bags for their partners.

The Pen’s second-floor meeting rooms will take on the role of MaArte’s #PinoyManCave. Inside, expect to find exhibitors who will come out with special product lines just for men: Len Cabili’s Filip+Inna, Jojie Lloren for La Herminia Piña, Creative Definitions, Balay ni Atong, Natalya Lagdameo, and TDLG (Tweetie de Leon Gonzales).
The ladies, of course, can enjoy a wide selection of apparel, jewellery, accessories, fragrances and home decor, with exhibitors such as Mich Araullo, Randy Ortiz, Gifts & Graces, Aranaz Bags, Micki Olaguer, Antukin, Two Chic, Oscar Mejia Fragrances, Stockton Row, Tim Tam Ong, Beyond Borders, and many, many more.
