The Filipiniana: A Historical Fashion Evolution at The Shang

The Filipiniana dress has been making waves worldwide as both Filipino designers and fashionistas have been making conscious effort in promoting this distinctive garment. But there's more to the popular Filipiniana dress as we have a rich culture before the Spaniards came. As as the years go by, the evolution of the Filipiniana dress evolved and adapted to different era.

Shangri-La Plaza, the metro's premiere shopping destination once again enthralled mall-goers with its latest fashion show that showcase the evolution of Philippine fashion from the pre-Hispanic times up to the present. Dubbed as Obra Maestra 2020, the fashion show and exhibit highlights the designs of Oskar Peralta, Renee Salud, Ditta Sandico, Richard Papa, Roland Lirio, Steve De Leon, Delby Bragais, Peri Diaz, Albert Figueras, Peter Lim, Ricci Lizaso, Glenn Lopez, Edgar Madamba, Jontie Martinez, Jerome Navarro, Joyce Penas-Pilarsky, Lito Perez, Edgar San Diego, Gerry Sunga, Philip Torres, Edwin Uy, and the late Eddie Baddeo.

Obra Maestra special exhibit is at the Luxury Lane, East Wing of Shangri-La Plaza and will run until February 20, 2020. This includes the evolution of the Filipiniana from pre-Hispanic times and with curated pieces from Filipino Fashion Greats such as Ramon Valera, Pitoy Moreno, Aureo Alonza, Ben Ferrales, R.T. Paras, and Pacita Longos.

Aside from the fashion show, Obra Maestra at the Shang also highlights the coffee table book of vintage fashion photography that also features narratives on Filipino arts, customs, and traditions from the pre-colonial and colonial periods to the post-war and contemporary times. The coffee table book is aptly titled- Obra Maestra: A Portrait of Excellence in Philippine Fashion and Culture. Another publication which is called- NOBLEIDEAS: To Aspire & Inspire, is a full-color magazine that features inspiring works and articles from some of the country's talented and artistic designers.

Proceeds from the Obra Maestra books will benefit the construction of the Benedictine Sisters Reparatices of the Sacred Heart's new monastery in Pampanga, as well as raise funds for the Duyog Marawi Project and the victims of the recent Taal Volcano eruption.
