The 60th edition of ‘Manila FAME: Asia’s Design and Lifestyle Event’, to be held from October 16-19, 2014, at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City, Philippines, will celebrate Philippine design.
Manila FAME, the second-longest running trade show in the Asia-Pacific, continues to be the primary sourcing venue for some international buyers like Neiman Marcus and Galerie Lafayette.
An event filled to the brim with craftsmanship, design, art and culture, Manila FAME will feature an extensive range of furnishings, fashion objects, gifts and décor for the upcoming holiday season and arts and crafts skillfully handcrafted by local Filipino designers.
To be organized by the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions, the export promotions arm of the Philippine Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the 60th edition of Manila FAME will revolve around three segments—Soulcrafts, Luxe and Gen C.
Soulcrafts: Colorful stories of history, heritage and hope are woven into every intricately crafted product by dedicated Filipino craftsmen whose skills have been perfected through the years – with passion. Influenced by the craftsmanship of the present, these handmade creations bring tradition to the now and continue to inspire those who value ‘soul art.’ 
Luxe: High-value products always come with a price: an unparalleled dedication to meticulous craftsmanship. They are top of the line in design, quality, and craftsmanship, befitting prestige brands and limited-edition items that cater to a niche market with discriminating taste. Luxe connotes sophistication, elegance, and style.
Gen C: Millennial-friendly products are contemporary, chic, and collaborative – all in keeping with the needs of the new generation consumer. The fast-paced lifestyle of today’s consumer drives design that is trendy yet functional; bold yet relevant. Cutting-edge design often paves the way to self-expression that knows no limits. (RKS)
