Bloom Fairy in the City


With a lace dress hugging my body and a hair as long as Rapunzel's but as curly as Merida's, my time at the Bloom Arts Festival 2 (see part 1 or part 2) can be comparable to my personification of a fairytale character getting out of the make-believe story and entering this beautiful realm.

It was magical. From a dull and repetitive lifestyle I was having that time due to school, the beautiful black and white world where I was at suddenly blasted into different colors found at the spectrum... it was so beautiful that the colors went beyond the spectrum of the rainbow.

Manila FAME Turns 60!

MANILA FAME creative director Budji Layug took Philippine design to a whole new level in the Design Philippines special setting last October 2013

Manila FAME, the country’s premier design and lifestyle event, once again unveils the modern Filipino’s design sensibility and brings together promising talents and seasoned artisans all under one roof in its 60th edition at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay on October 16 (TODAY!) - until October 19.

Each edition of Manila FAME features various programs aiming to position the Philippines as an ideal sourcing hub of finely crafted products for the local and global market. Among the event highlights this October are Design Philippines Scenography, ‘Be Our Guest’: A Table Accessories Showcase, Manila Wear, NeoTextiles Philippines, Red Box (Home), OTOP Marketplace, International Hall, and Modernizing the Masters. 

“This edition of Manila FAME is set to unfold cutting-edge collections of handcrafted products designed by the Filipino craftsmen. Through this bi-annual event, CITEM intends to solidify the image of the Filipinos’ artistry and design ingenuity in the global community,” said Rosvi Gaetos, executive director of the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM).

Bloom Arts Festival 2 (part 1)


MISSION: "Bloom Arts Festival is a dream of like minded artists to see all of the creatives they admire in one massive event of simultaneous exhibits and infinite inspiration. It is also the dream of these artists to share this exposure to the "blooming" artists. With the coming together of the established and the emerging, we celebrate and experience art and culture in the Philippines like never before." - Bloom Arts Festival

11 months after this amazing event happened and I'm finally blogging about it. I know, I know. I cannot hide the fact that this happened last year because I can feel that Bloom Arts Festival 3 is about to happen anytime soon (probably on November just like last year? *fingers crossed*). I can vividly remember how I tried my very best to make everything work just so I can go to this art festival and oh boy, I'm glad I did! I enjoyed Bloom Arts Festival 1 a lot with my mom and right now, I can't even hide how I had the most wonderful time ever with my friends for last year's festival!
