Musa fabric, founded by Joy Soo, will be featured in the creatively designed outfits at the fashion show.  The event will reveal the importance of utilizing natural materials from banana fibers in creating various clothing and, importantly, advocating for the indigenous residents in Tagum, Davao City, Philippines. Specifically, the advocacy aims to help sustain the livelihood of the persons deprived of liberty and the indigenous community of the province of Davao del Norte.

There will be 24 supportive models who will walk the runway in elaborative and creative designed outfits from House of Musa designers. With each fabric used in the garment intricately weaved by the inmates of Tagum City Provincial jail and the indigenous people, this is “fashion with a cause,” added Cindy Mac, the organizer and director of the show.

“We are very excited about the show and the importance of this advocacy,” said Hernani Depositar, Jr. president of AASD.
