• ‘Global Fashion Flair’ makes a comeback


    Ambassadors of the diplomatic community, their spouses, and some members of the International Bazaar Foundation (IBF) will take center stage for a cause as Global Fashion Flair makes a comeback on May 5 at the New World Makati Hotel.

    Members of the diplomatic corps will walk down the ramp as they model Filipiniana. Not to be left behind are the ambassadors who will model the different styles of the barong.

    Global Fashion Flair is the brainchild of the IBF of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and the Spouses of Heads of Mission (SHOM).

    Spearheaded by Madame Gretchen del Rosario, spouse of Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario and Madame Agnes Roscigno, spouse of Italian Ambassador to the Philippines Massimo Roscigno, as well as event chairman Fortune Ledesma, Consul General of Monaco, the event is an encore of the immensely successful and much acclaimed Global Fashion Flair held two years ago.

    SM, through the graciousness and generosity of Tessie Sy-Coson, will be the major sponsor of the show and will provide all the Filipiniana gowns, barongs, and accessories from Kultura; as well as clothes and shoes from the SM Store.

    Farid Schoucair, general manager of New World Makati Hotel, is delighted and honored to offer the elegant venue of his hotel and excellent services of his staff.

    IBF and SHOM members, friends, and many supporters look forward to Global Fashion Flair 2. Proceeds of the show will go to the rehabilitation of houses devastated by Super Typhoon Yolanda in Tacloban, Leyte, and Typhoon Ruby in Eastern Samar. There are still so many families struggling to recover and rebuild their lives and spirit.

    Tickets are available at New World Makati at Esperanza St. corner Makati Avenue, Makati and at the 6th floor Special Projects Unit, Department of Foreign Affairs, 2330 Roxas Blvd. Pasay City, as well as Tesoro’s at Arnaiz Avenue in Makati City.
