Cebu Fashion Designer Edwin Ao to represent the Philippines on Japan Fashion Week 2010

So exciting this is for Cebu and the rest of the Philippines! Although Japan Fashion Week is somehow an industry-only driven event, some of the features to look forward to is the exhibition displaying the last 50 years of fashion through High Fashion magazine, as well as the flea market that will feature well-known names from the industry.

Congrats, Edwin Ao, you have done Cebu proud!
