Freeway Art: Vicente Manansala

 October 18, 2011 - Freeway launched its sixth installment of the National Artist Collectors' Series honoring Vicente Manansala, the National Artist for Visual Arts. The event was held at The Row in Glorietta 5 and was attended by fashion and art enthusiasts, media, bloggers and of course, the family and friends of Manansala.

The event was hosted by Tim Yap and Divine Lee who were both wearing Manansala outfits. They just look oh-so-gorgeous and hotness. The event's very special guests are Maritess Mendoza-Pineda, President of Friends of Manansala Foundation, Cedie Lopez-Vargas of the Lopez Museum and the granddaughter of Vicente Manansala, Ronna Manansala.

I'm overwhelmed with the beautiful collection Freeway has presented. From the cool crop tops to the gorgeous mini-dress, definitely a must-have for everyone who is in love with fashion and art. The models were also wearing shoes designed by Carmina Villaroel whose shoe line is named: MuñizShoes. Gorgeous makeup by the models was done by Margo Sarmiento and hair were by Nina Escano, Charlene Manibo and Ana Liza Sulthan.

Down at the ground floor of Glorietta 5, the artists from the Kunst Pilipino Group were sketching live before the event. Artists present were: Aris Bagtas | Sam Bulaga | Allen Casacop | Emer Casacop | Jo Florendo | Lourdes Inosanto | Lawton Ladao | Raquel Molata | Bill Perez | Mischa Semana.

I enjoyed the event with some of my blogger friends and I am definitely buying something from this collection soon and will, of course, blog about it too. I also had the privilege of having a picture with Divine Lee and the one and only, Chuvaness! Oh, and thanks to Freeway for the fab gift. I'm definitely using the mouse pad at the office. I'm a proud owner now of a Manansala piece.
