Round-shaped clutches painted with lively, happy faces reminiscent of the masks worn during Bacolod’s Masskara Festival are the latest offerings in Joanique’s continuing line of accessories that take Filipino design to a whole new level at Kabila Filipino Bistro at Ayala Museum in Makati City this afternoon.

Created by Malou Romero, the clutches aim to raise awareness about the Philippine archipelago’s colorful past and cultural traditions through fashion.

Also available are 24-carat gold-plated silver jewelry with eye-catching ethnic designs that “must be worn in order to be understood.”

As it is, Joanique’s designs have already captured fans in London, Tokyo, Hong Kong and the US and have caught the attention of global publications like Vogue, Travelite and Le Mag Paris, and stores like Anthropologie.
