10 Philippine-Made Fashion Items to Shop for at Manila FAME

If you’re looking for fashion items you’re unlikely to see others wearing at the office, when you’re out and about, or even at formal events, you might want to drop by Manila FAME 2015, the Design and Lifestyle Event organized by the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM) for the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). While the show features everything from furniture and home furnishings (with more downstairs at the Philippines International Furniture Show), holiday gifts and decor, and fashion pieces and accessories, we’re sure that it’s that last item we’ve listed that’ll interest most modern Filipinas.

So if you’re free today or tomorrow, consider heading over to the 61st Manila FAME, which opened on Friday, March 13, will run until Monday, March 16, at the SMX Conevention Center in Pasay City. The show is open from 9AM to 6PM. And if you’re looking for pretty export-quality Philippine-made fashion, you’re sure to find something to pique your interest and have you reaching for your wallet here.
