PHx Fashion Group, the organizers of PHx Fashion Conference, Fashion Forward Dialogues, PHx Fashion Conversations and PHx MaArte, is thrilled to announce this year’s return of PHx Fashion Conference and to introduce PHx Station, a three-month market activity to showcase up-and-coming Filipino fashion brands.

The PHx Fashion Group, conceptualized and led by contemporary fashion designers Esme Palaganas and Seph Bagasao with the support of Trickie Lopa, enables a creative business environment through education and market incubation.

PHx Fashion Conference

The group actually started PHx Fashion conference in November 2019. It is a first-of-its-kind designer-led initiative in the Philippines that aims to inspire fledgling Filipino fashion brands to set up their operations to a global standard. The event fosters innovation, mentorship, and industry collaboration to help broaden the horizons of Filipino fashion designers working on their labels.

This year, PHx Fashion Conference will happen on November 17 to 19 at the Ayala Museum, Makati City and will offer a holistic, informative, and inspirational experience by bringing together resource speakers, mentors, and lecturers to discuss the creative and business aspects of fashion.

With key names in the fashion and creative industries, PHx Fashion Conference 2023 will include sessions and workshops about fashion business strategies.

One of the speakers is Norman René De Vera, who started his global fashion journey at the London College of Fashion and has previously worked with designer brands such as Celine, Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, Versace, and Calvin Klein.

Conducting the principal portions of PHx Fashion Conference 2023 is TFC Press founder Philippe Terrien and his wife, former fashion editor, Giselle Go. TFC Press is a full-service PR agency with an impressive body of work covering business development, commercial activities, and PR and digital communications. They have collaborated with some of the most influential names in fashion, design and art, beauty, and lifestyle including Dries Van Noten, Aesop, Carven, Emilio Pucci, and Courrèges. The Japan-based duo also launched their own skincare line, Damdam Tokyo. Aside from the series of creative talks, panel discussions, and workshops, select participants will also get a chance to have their portfolios reviewed by TFC Press.

PHx Station

This year, the PHx Fashion Group also introduces PHx Station, a dynamic market activity that will feature several Filipino contemporary fashion brands throughout a three-month run from October 2023 to January 2024. A batch of designers per month will take over the pop-up at Greenbelt 5 in Makati City to showcase their labels.

PHx Station is the culmination of the mentoring process and fashion journey initiated during the initial salvo of PHx Fashion Conference in 2019.  

Participating Filipino brands and designers include Alexie Nethercott, Aire, Apara, Bagasáo, HaMu, Idyllic Summers, Jerome Lorico, Jill Lao, Jude Macasinag, Kelvin Morales, Le Ngok, Liliana Manahan, Neil Felipp, Nicolo, Novel,  Randolf, Renz Reyes, and more.

An essential aspect of PHx Station is the collaboration with fashion schools College of St. Benilde, iAcademy, and SoFA.  A fashion student selected from each school will have the opportunity to present their collections at each batch of PHx Station.  This provides chosen students with practical and valuable real-world market experience. 

UPDATE: Some snaps from PHx Station at Greenbelt 5. The pop-up store will be featuring Filipino contemporary designers and labels until January 15, 2024.

So that’s the cycle that fulfills PHx Group’s mission! PHx Fashion Conference provides the education component while the station provides the marketplace of theory into practice. Be part of the movement to propel Filipino fashion to global standards! Click here to book:
