The British Fashion Month was launched recently at SM Aura and it is the penultimate event leading to the Grand British Festival from March 7-9 at Bonifacio Global City.
British Ambassador Asif Ahmad was on hand to highlight the activities so far of their "This is GREAT British Campaign" that began last October as part of the UK-Philippines Friendship Week.
"In the last five months we have shown you British creativity, entrepreneurship, education, food, and now fashion," Ambassador Ahmad said. "Britain is a world leader in fashion. Almost every new fashion trend started in the UK."
He added that he has seen Filipinos adopting British Fashion by wearing brands such as Marks & Spencer, Lee Cooper, T.M. Lewin, or even tops featuring the Union Jack. And in this age of "selfie", the British Embassy is inviting everyone to show their fashion style by joining their Twitter contest.
