There is nothing like Filipino aesthetic and design, as proven by Pinoy design greats making waves worldwide.
One such Pinoy designer who is a true #PinoyPride is Cary Santiago of Cebu, known for intricate designs that are soft yet sexy and with a strong appeal. On October 13, Monday, Santiago celebrated 25 years in the industry as Metro Magazine's Metrowear Icon.
A fashion show was held in his honor at the Isla Ballroom of Edsa Shangri-La Hotel. Veteran models Tweetie de Leon, Apples Aberin, and Marina Benipayo were among those who walked the runway to pay homage to Santiago.
