MANILA, Philippines – Clothes made by Frederick Peralta are now being sold to raise funds for the veteran designer as he recovers from a stroke that he suffered in 2018.

The trunk show sale is currently open at the Marriott Hotel Manila, and will run until June 23.

According to Preview, vintage dresses and gowns made by Peralta are being sold for P2,500 to P10,000. Barongs and suits are also being sold. All proceeds will go towards Peralta’s health and living expenses.

Photos from the sale were shared by Peralta’s supporters on social media.

In a Facebook post, Mariott Hotel Manila marketing communications director Michelle Garcia said that Peralta has moved in to Home Health Care, a health care service provider in Anonas, Quezon City.

A video shared by Garcia shows Peralta saying he is undergoing therapy, and that he is “basically okay.”

Another video shows Peralta’s fashion sketchbook, which he continues to draw in even now.

Garcia also said that aside from shopping at the trunk sale, people can also send contributions directly to Peralta’s sister, Len Peralta-Caro, who was tagged in the Facebook post. – Rappler.com
