Habi Kadayawan Fashion Accessories Design Competition is a brainchild of the 2017 Kadayawan Executive Committee chaired by Gatchi Gatchalian. Davao Fashion and Design Council Foundation, Inc. has been tapped to organize the maiden edition of yet the most exciting fashion accessories design competition in the region. Ten finalists will be chosen to manufacture their proposed designs inspired by the 11 Kadayawan Tribes of Davao. The grand prize winner will receive P 100,000.00 cash and a Kadayawan trophy. The 1st runner-up, 2nd runner-up and Honorable Mention will each take home P 50,000,00, P30,000.00 and P 5,000.00 cash, respectively.habikadayawan

Since the competition is open to all professionals, amateurs, students and hobbyists alike, Habi Kadayawan is anticipating diversity in terms of interpretation and aesthetics on the theme anchored on the artisanal heritage of the 11 Kadayawan Tribes. With that, Habi is also excited to discover new talents apart from the more established in the field. Habi Kadaywan is also excited to see how Davao can possibly identify its niche in fashion accessories other than the bags, scarves and shoes that our local designers have ventured in for quite some time. A number of the
made it already to the Katha Awards of Manila FAME and have been exporting ever since.
