Three years since its last outing, the Red Charity Gala finally made its return, this time featuring the work of fashion designer Ivarluski Aseron.
Aseron, known for his minimal style, paid homage to Philippine culture with his contemporary take on the Filipiniana, especially featuring the traditional yet modified banig. For the Gala, his collection centered on the theme “A Memoir in Motion.” The collection serves as an accumulation of his past work and various experiences given shape through his reflections on his journey thus far.
The Red Charity Gala was originally launched in 2009 by Tessa Prieto and Kaye Tinga for the Philippine Red Cross.
Aside from Aseron, the Gala has also historically celebrated the creativity and ingenuity of Filipino talents, featuring others such as Rajo Laurel, Joey Samson, Chito Vijandre, and Lesley Mobo.
The Red Charity Gala 2023 was presented by Bench and Angkas, in cooperation with Arthaland, together with A2A Safaris and Jewelmer.
