Artisan Fashion Market and Crafts Buffet

Fashion Weekend Davao culminated today with A, a weekend market for artisanal fashion products from indigenous communities in Davao City, Davao del Sur, Davao del Norte, Davao Oriental, Davao Occidental, and Compostela Valley.

A also featured long intersecting crafts tables where various guests gathered to try their hand at painting, beadworking, and more–a symbol of the cultural convergence Fashion Weekend Davao aims to achieve.

Also occurring simultaneously were Heritage Fashion Commune: Live Interactive Showcase of the Region’s Indigenous High Arts, Gama | Gawa: Vignette of Award-winning Davao Fashion Design and Designers, and FASHION+ Co-Lab: Curated Pop-up Stores Featuring Davao’s IP Community-collaborated Fashion Brands.

Throughout the afternoon, cultural performances by the different tribes reminded everyone present about the diversity that is part of Mindanao’s distinct identity.
