BAGUIO CITY, Philippines – As a "grand tribute" to Mother Mary, a Marian-inspired fashion event was held in this city on Friday, May 31
International designer and fashion photographer Eros Goze was the curator of the Santacruzan-style event held on the final day of the Marian month of May.
"Santa Maria, Sabsabong ti Mayo" began with Mass at the Baguio Cathedral followed by a procession where participating designers showed off their pieces inspired by the many faces of the Virgin Mary.
Aside from Goze, the other designers at the event were Andrew Visaya, Ayves Oliver Calub, Pia Santillian, Jan Paul Martinez, Don Cristobal, Juliene Paran, Ces Calaguas, Hanz Jeo Rapanan, King George Bueno, Jerome Bagni, Miguel Lagasca, Karu Villanueva, and Shiva Rivera.
