‘GROWN BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS’

“Since its inception in 2010, the LOOK of Style Awards has grown by leaps and bounds,” says Ana Tan, program and PR manager, British Council. “Every year, there is evidence of how the partnership between the British Council, LOOK Magazine, and the Philippine Daily Inquirer has not only showcased talent from both the Philippines and the UK but has contributed to the growth and support for the Philippine fashion industry.”

“It’s always exciting to discover new talent and to contribute to the career development of the next generation’s designers,” adds LOOK Magazine editor- in-chief Carmencita S. Sioson. “This year, LOOK and Inquirer Lifestyle, under the auspices of the British Council, and with Star World as co-presenter, continue to support emerging designers not only in the field of fashion design, but also of accessories design. As we hope to create a significant impact on the fashion industry, we’ve made LOOK of Style Awards 2013 even more exciting with leading industry professionals as our finalists’ mentors.”

For this year’s chosen theme, Pinoy Goes Global, finalists must present the new generation’s take on Filipiniana veering away from the traditional and make use of local fabrics and sewing techniques that will show their design’s potential for mainstream fashion.

9 finalists in the apparel category and 12 finalists in the accessories category were selected from successful go-sees in Davao, Cebu, and Manila.
