MEGA Pinoy Pride - Class of Champions


A Class of Champions Awards Alumni of the 
MEGA Young Designers Competition 


After celebrating the country’s Independence Day, MEGA further stresses its nationalism through the recently held “A Class of Champions”.

In its pursuit to look for the next new face in Filipino design, MEGA created the MEGA Young Designers Competition (YDC) in 1994 to gather the next best Filipino designers who could bring Filipino design to the runways of the world. Some notable designers started their careers through the competition, namely: Patrice Ramos-Diaz, Gian Romano, Ivarluski Aseron, Russell Villafuerte, Mich Dulce, Oj Hofer, Rajo Laurel and international designer Furne One among others.


“A Class of Champions”, held last June 19, 2012 at The Podium, cited and awarded ten of the country’s top Filipino designers. Cocktails were served to the stylish and chic crowd who gathered to view the fashion exhibit. 


The exhibit was a collection of different pieces taken from the creations of YDC alumni. Fresh from the MEGA Pinoy Pride Ball, iconic pieces by international Filipino designer Furne One was also on display. The thirty one pieces presented by Furne in the recently held MEGA Pinoy Pride Ball was said to be a multi-million peso worth collection.

I love your pink dress with the belt as a good accent to the whole outfit.And designer clothes from Filipino designers are really good. Their designs are really worth to be considered as a Filipino pride.
