Event Description

Designer appearance 12:00-3:30 pm

Filipina designer Lenora Cabili's love for the rich cultural heritage of the Philippines began as a child growing up in Mindanao. She fondly recalls visits to her home by the Maranaos and being exposed to different indigenous tribes. Len's designs are inspired by tradition, mixing the past with present, creating unique garments that incorporate ancient techniques of weaving, embroidery and bead work from indigenous Filipino groups. Len's mission is to create while also reviving and preserving ancient traditions, as she works with talented artisans across the Archipelago to provide opportunities to improve livelihoods.
