The Red Charity Gala, the country’s premier annual fashion affair for a cause, marks its 10th anniversary with Rajo Laurel.
Laurel’s creations will be featured in a fashion show on Oct. 27 at the Grand Ballroom of the Marriott Hotel Manila.
For his special collection, Laurel, a creative and entrepreneurial powerhouse who is marking his 25th year in the fashion industry, will pay homage to Philippine history and culture, its roots and origins, through the persona of his modern muse—the intelligent and quietly powerful Filipino woman.
Trained in the New York Fashion Institute of Technology and Central Saint Martin’s in London, Laurel has received several local and international awards for fashion design and entrepreneurship. His creations are infused with elegance, romance, and luxury—modern yet feminine, a blend of hard and soft elements.
Laurel joins fellow Filipino designers and past honorees Dennis Lustico, Furne One, Michael Cinco, Cary Santiago, Ezra Santos, Jojie Lloren, Lesley Mobo, Chito Vijandre, and Joey Samson—all world-renowned talents.
This year, the Red Charity Gala is partnering with Bench and The Manila Marriot Hotel, as main presenter and co-presenter, respectively.
Furthermore, the fashion-cum-fundraising event will have a new beneficiary, the MINT Fashion School, an innovative partnership between Lesley Mobo and the Meridian International College. A full four-year scholarship in the school will be awarded to aspiring and deserving students of fashion.
On its 10th year, the Red Charity Gala is bigger than ever—with an all-new and grander venue, more generous sponsors, and a new beneficiary. It also remains committed to bringing Philippine fashion and Filipino creativity to the world stage while touching the lives of others in a meaningful and profound way.
The event’s founders, society figures Tessa Prieto-Valdes and Kaye Tinga have been unwavering and tirelessly committed to championing the best in Filipino creative talents in fashion while supporting the Philippine Red Cross and the Assumption High School Batch 1981 Foundation since they held the first event in 2008.
