Forty-four promising designers are set to take fashion innovation into a wider scale through Sinulid 2022, a digital runway show that serves as their initial launch on Friday, March 18, 2022.
Sinulid is the highly successful culminating event that annually showcases the knowledge, craftsmanship and skills of the graduating Fashion Design and Merchandising (FDM) students of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde School of Design and Arts.
Themed Patches of Introspection, this year’s installment utilizes the vast possibilities of technology as young artists exemplify diverse ways to communicate individual perspectives and artistic journeys amid a period of global upheaval.
The virtual display will feature manipulation of new and unconventional materials and exploration of different techniques such as 3D and eco-printing, quilting and fabric sculpting, jewelry-making and beading.
Sinulid 2022 will debut collections from dark ensembles that narrate stories of grotesque tales, strange characters and creeping anxieties, to dazzling 70s glam rock fashion reminiscent of the happy-go-lucky days of the disco balls.
There will also be silhouettes that embody self-discoveries and emotional phases amid the world’s longest lockdown, to ready-to-wear eco-dyed pieces that evoke the value of healing through consciousness.
Culture and tradition will be highlighted in stylish hand-embroidered looks evocative of the various Chinese festivals, as well as Samurai-inspired garments as a nod to the invaluable ideals of the Japanese.
Inclusion is also considered with trendy but practical wear for athletic children, plus protective gears motivated by plus-sized women.
To further explore the effects of the pandemic on the health and state of being, a wellness workshop will likewise be conducted at the launch. Facilitated by certified mindfulness, holistic health and wellness coach and fitness instructor Cam Lagmay, she advocates for a healthy and fit lifestyle in mind, body and energy.
The event will be hosted by beauty influencer and Benilde FDM homegrown talent Rovin Mizuse.
Sinulid 2022 is co-presented by All British Cars, Inc. and is sponsored by Slimmers World, Ikigai, MillennX, Beatriz Accessories and Manila Bay Thread Corporation.
