The British Council, Philippine fashion magazine Look and the Philippine Daily Inquirer are offering a UK designer the opportunity showcase your collections at the Look of Style Fashion Awards and explore the Philippine fashion and textiles industries.

The Philippines has an incredible and diverse textile sector from antique and traditional weaving to natural dyeing and manufacturing. This alongside the growing contemporary fashion scene offers a rich and exciting opportunity for research.
Your work will be shown on the catwalk alongside the collections of local designers.  The project is intended to highlight the most innovative emerging talent from both the UK and the Philippines.

The programme will take place from 2–7 October and include:

  • Attending the Look of Style Awards ceremony;
  • A talk for students at the School of Fashion and the Arts;
  • and Industry meetings with the Philippine Garments &Textiles Office, the Fashion Design Council of the Philippines and more.

In addition to this official programme, you could develop your own extra programme of personal research and visits to shops, markets, weavers and manufacturers. The British Council can help organise this, by offering suggestions, introductions, arranging visits and help with logistics. However the cost of accommodation and living expenses during this time will be covered by the designer.
