Renowned and up-and-coming creators gather for a cause at FORA by FilipinaZ, an art, design, and fashion fair organized by the Zonta Club of Makati and Environs in partnership with Security Bank.
FORA by FilipinaZ is the evolution of Zonta’s annual bazaars and pop-ups and has become the group’s biggest and most important fundraising activity. It supports Zonta’s mission of advancing the status of women through advocacy and service.
Platinum sponsor Security Bank, who has been supporting FilipinaZ for several years, also champions advocacies that reflect its mission to enrich lives, empower businesses, and build communities. Over the years, the Bank is known to support events that empower Filipino artisans and local entrepreneurs.
Held at The Fifth at Rockwell, Power Plant mall, from October 11 to 13, FORA by FilipinaZ fair is a multi-sensory shopping experience. Over 100 established artisans, as well as emerging talents, showcase their distinct styles and pieces in well-curated booths and zones throughout the fair.
FORA by FilipinaZ unites multiple markets that are bound by a commonality in art, design, and fashion. It highlights key collaborations from iconic Filipino artist Juvenal Sanso, legendary fashion designer Ben Farrales, and award-winning industrial designer Kenneth Cobonpue who will offer an exclusive pre-order piece at the event.
FORA by FilipinaZ puts women artists to the forefront by collaborating with White Walls Gallery, and featuring artists from FilipinaZ’s own efforts. Limited edition merchandise and artworks created by art scholars from Fundacion Sanso will be showcased at the ground floor of Power Plant mall.
The event also features the works of fashion students and alumni from the SoFA Design Institute, Fashion Institute of the Philippines, and the Institute of Creative Entrepreneurship: Fashion, Arts, & Design (ICE-FAD).
