MaArtes, let's celebrate the Filipino creativity and craftsmanship this weekend!

After two long years, MaArte at The Pen, a local bazaar whose mission is to raise funds and awareness for the National Museum of the Philippines and its networks, is back.

Aside from bringing together local fashion, furniture, and accessory brands, MaArte will also introduce PHxMaArte, a collaboration with PHx Fashion Group to highlight the next generation of Filipino designers.

There will also be an exhibit featuring the creations of Salvacion Lim Higgins, known by the acronym Slim, who was known for creating avant-garde pieces. It will be available on view at The Lobby from August 15 to 27.

And finally, there will be talks on history of tea, Philippine contemporary craft and design landscape, and haute couture fashion during the festival. MaArte Talks runs at 2:00 p.m. daily from August 19 to 21 at Salon de Ning in Peninsula Manila.

The bazaar is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on August 19 until 21, 2022. Admission is free.
