New York - Renowned Filipino designers Albert Andrada and Barge Ramos called on Consul General Claro S. Cristobal on 10 April 2019 ahead of their fashion show and exhibit in New York. 

The show, Fabulous Philippines: a Perfect Wedding Destination, is an official entry to the New York Fashion Week's Bridal 2019 and will be held on 13 April 2019 at the Landmark on the Park. Before the fashion show, an exhibition of gowns designed by Andrada and Ramos, including the iconic royal blue gown worn by Ms. Universe Pia Wurtzbach, will also be held at the Philippine Center Lobby from 11-12 April. The three-day event will be a fusion of Filipino-made masterworks of handwoven fabrics and intricate lifestyle items.


According to Christine May Daguno and Gina Reyes of Neocolors International which organized the events, Fabulous Philippines is not only a fashion show but a tourism and lifestyle event focusing on the development, marketing, and promotion of the Philippines as a perfect wedding destination, as well as a celebration of the creativity and style of Filipino designers.

Albert Andrada's bridal collection is a mix of luxurious fabrics like silk, lace and jusi and his embroidery is inspired by the intricate "solihiya" technique. Barge Ramos' Perfume and Incense, on the other hand, is a 25-piece collection of handwoven fabrics, embroidery, and handpainting.

Consul General Cristobal congratulated Andrada, Ramos, and Neocolors for bringing the Philippines and the creativity and design of Filipinos to the New York Fashion Week.
