Offering up a taste of the Philippines rich indigenous fibers and a refreshing dose of foreign culture, Fibre Filippine Goes to Rome promises to make October a memorable month for the Italian capitol. Said to fuse the fashions of both cultures in an eco-friendly way, the event promises not only to be entertaining, but innovative and intriguing as well.

Philippines-based designers and companies are set to showcase their products made from indigenous fibres—pina, abaca and banana—during a trade show ‘Fibre Filippine Goes to Rome’ to be held in the Italian capital of Rome, in October 2013.

The trade show, to be organized by the European Network of Filipino Diaspora (ENFiD), will highlight the creativity and talent of the Filipinos in making use of the local fibres within the mainstream Italian wear, including haute couture fashion, ready-to-wear apparel and other items.
