Davao City’s newly reformatted fashion and design platform is finally connected to the world wide web. Davao Fashion Design Council launched its website www.dfdc.com.ph to connect the Davao and global communities to the first ever FASHION WEEK-END DAVAO (FWD). Envisioned to become the island’s premier design and lifestyle event, FWD highlights the week-long celebrations of Design Week Philippines in Davao and Araw ng Dabaw on March 16-20. The pre-Summer season’s fashion forecast will be presented in a series of fashion shows on March 18-19 at the Activity Center of Abreeza Ayala Mall by luxe retail brands of Abreeza, Davao’s up and coming designers, graduating fashion design students of PWC of Davao and the member-designers of the soon-to-be-recognized Davao Fashion Design Council Foundation Incorporated. A fashion forum by local designers and the country’s top fashion magazine editors will also be held following the runway report. Concurrent to the runway shows are design talks at the SSI Hallway (between Marks and Spencer and Payless) on March 16-17 and exhibits all over the mall from March 16-20.
