Red Box October

Red Box Program

Under the mentorship of Budji Layug (furniture and home accents) and Lulu Tan-Gan (apparel and fashion accessories), young design talents are matched with local manufacturing companies, providing them ample business immersion and network opportunities to ensure that the products they develop are appealing, viable and market-responsive.

Manila FAME also offers a glimpse into the ongoing development of the emerging designers from last year’s Red Box Design Talents Competition (Cycle 1).

Junior Designers Rachelle Dagñalan and Joseph Rastrullo take center stage as their three-year design journey under the Red Box Program draws to a close. Their curated display of furniture and home accents summarizes three years’ worth of bold ideas and experimental strokes, tempered by lessons learned and the steady, guiding hand of an experienced mentor.
