Happy Andrada creations from the celebrated Perya Event
Beauty and Fashion Bloggers were invited over at the Fashion Art a.k.a. F*ART headquarters in Kamuning, Quezon City. We were delighted to be accommodated with the lovely sisters slash business partners Viva and Happy Andrada. We were later introduced to Fashion Designers Alliance Manila (FADAL Manila). This is a brand new association of fashion designers.
FADAL Manila is composed of these beautiful people:
President – Happy Andrada
Vice-President – Dax Bayani
Secretary – Jona Ballaran
Fiscal Developmental Directress – Jaz Cerezo
PRO – Yako Reyes
Media Liaison – Nat Manilag
Logistics and Marketing – Clint Catalan
Creator in Chief – Levenson Rodriguez
While it is true that amongst artists, it is almost always expected for them to have the spirit of being competitive, they still believe that it is possible to pursue the value of encouraging each other, acknowledging the craft of every artist. I love the way Levenson has articulated this with conviction. We all know we have seen enough crab mentality going around for so long, that such is no longer welcome to lurk around any corner. With such a sweet spirited young lady president that they have, Happy Andrada, it is not impossible for such guild to hold strong to this value. Kikay Corner totally supports FADAL Manila.

Incidentally, some of the creations of FADAL Manila will parade the catwalk during the upcoming Philippine Fashion Week Holiday’09. Kikay Corner will be checking them out on May 26th and 29th.
