METRO.STYLE: ArteFino Is Back! Here's Everything You Need To Know About This Year's Festival
ArteFino honors the past, present, and future of fashion with their much-awaited return. For this year's festival, ArteFino will be showcasing 150+ brands from August 25 to September 28 at the ground level of the Powerplant Mall in Rockwell. 44 of these designers and brands are new additions to the ArteFino community, each one hand picked by the ladies behind ArteFino.
Ever since their first artisanal trade fair in 2017, founders Susie Quiros, Marimel Francisco, Mita Rufino, Maritess Pineda, and Cedie Lopez-Vargas, have always believed that Filipino talents deserve an inclusive platform to tell their inspiring stories.
Some of the new designers and brands you can look forward to at this year's festival include Aire, Bagoyan, Camille Villanueva, Christian Cera, Edited Limited, Style Ana, Kelvin Morales, Jill Lao, Katha Pilipinas, The Shape Shope, Nuevo Ystilo, Pinagtagpi, Pinas Sadya, Vina Romero, and more.
As a movement, a community, and a celebration of all things Filipino in one, ArteFino is bringing back booths and interactive spaces like pocket events and workshops within a festival-like setting. Each week will introduce a new roster of labels across the categories of fashion, accessories, fine jewelry, home, and children’s wear. A special section called Barracks will also be set up as a curated space for men to lounge, shop, and sip on local artisanal brews.
