MANILA, Phil Cignal, the country’s premier direct-to-home/satellite Pay TV provider, and its living magazine channel, Colours, bring to the Philippines a one-of-a-kind production that showcased a Filipino’s world-class talent in the field of fashion.ippines -

The fashion event was the first-ever gala show in Manila of acclaimed London-based Filipino designer Lesley Mobo. It was also a collaborative work of Philippine fashion advocate Kaye Tinga and ace fashion director Ariel Lozada.

“It has always been our commitment to support top-notch and worthwhile projects that will inspire Filipinos to become world-class talents, and we feel that we will be able to achieve that through this event. More importantly, we would also like more Filipinos to appreciate Lesley’s creativity and be inspired by it. Through his story, we wish to encourage Filipinos all over the world to dream big, work hard and make use of their talent in order to attain success,” said Manuel V. Pangilinan, chairman of the board, PLDT.

Held last Oct. 29 at the Mall of Asia Arena, the gala featured Mobo’s Spring/Summer Collection for 2013. Inspired by the famous orchestral work The Rite of Spring by Russian composer Igor Stravinsky, the latest collection is composed mainly of women’s wear with a fresh, fun and luxurious look.

“As this season is about construction and quality, the collection explores easier shapes with a classic look but incorporates a contemporary edge to it. It also focuses on neutral color palettes such as sugar white, charcoal black and wheat and biscuit nude,” said Mobo.

Although Mobo made a name for himself in London, he originally started his career in fashion in the Philippines. However, he joined a contest where he was disqualified due to a technicality. Adding insult to injury was the fact that his entry to the contest was thought to be ridiculous by some people involved in the competition.
