Freeway does it again.
This time, they honor National Artist for the Visual Arts Vicente Manansala with a collection that I really, truly found impressive.
I really envy the collection Freeway launched for the ladies last October 18 at the Row in Glorietta 5. I kept thinking, if only there was a men's version for most of them, I'd have them in my rotation. But I heard that there would be pieces for men and that is something to look forward to.
Below are my top three from the collection. I based it on how I felt they looked really classy and would make any classy woman all the more attractive:
Hosts of the night were Divine Lee and Tim Yap (both of whom I later saw at the Mega Publishing event at Prive in Bonifacio Global City) with special guests Ronna Manansala (Manansala's granddaughter), Cedie Lopez-Vargas (The Lopez Museum), and Maritess Mendoza-Pineda (President of the Friends of Manansala Foundation).
I got to speak with Ronna before the program started and I found out that she is an artist herself and that her group "Kunst Pilipino Group" was also there to make portraits of guests.
Here are more images from the night:
