MERGE is now on its Season 3! And yes they just keep getting bigger, hotter and better.
MERGE is a brainchild of VATICAN Fashion Museum (formerly BOBON) -- the fashion house of seasoned designers like Arnold Galang, Eric delos Santos, Estien Quijano, Jerome Salaya Ang, Lizanne Cua, Ulysses King, Yajo Reyes and designer brands like EsAC by Raoul Ramirez, Lyle Ibanez and Audie Espino & Envoy by Edmir Lagui.
The thrust of MERGE is to collaborate with fresh and high-potential models, stylists, hair & make-up artists, photographers & bloggers and to give them opportunity for them to collaborate with the more seasoned and respected designers in the Philippine fashion industry.
Now on i's 3rd season, MERGE is one of the sought-after and well-attended events at The Podium where Vatican invites participants fresh from the recent Philippine Fashion Week.
For this season, the highlight will be the Merge Fashion Show featuring Anthony Ramirez, Arnold Galang, Chris Jasler (of Jail Jeans), Dave Ocampo, Eric de los Santos, EsAC (by Audie Espino, and designs by Lyle Ibanez, Raoul Ramirez), Estien Quijano, Happy Andrada, Jerome Salaya Ang, Lizanne Cua, Melchor Guinto, ROland Lirio, SHannon Pamaong, Ulysses King, Yako Reyes and Frederick Peralta, followed by the launch of VATICAN Fashion Museum, introduction of the Narcosis Collection and the unveiling of the photo exhibit by the Fashion Designers Alliance-Manila (FaDAL) at the Markati Palazzo, 4F of The Podium.
The Merge Fashion Sale, is set on November 13th to 19th at Markati Palazzo, 4F of The Podium.
