A Celebration of Filipino Creativity and Artistry
Support local this summer as Kultura’s Filipino Design Studio opens once again this March! After its successful debut at Kultura The Podium last September 2022, the Filipino Design Studio will now be popping up at SM Aura Premier from March 16 to April 2 this year.
Envisioned as a space of inspiration and community, our aim for the Filipino Design Studio is to highlight and support exceptional local talent. Here, we endeavor to bring you a specially curated roster of guest brands alongside Kultura’s house brands. Discover beautifully crafted local finds in fashion, beauty, home, personal care, modern Filipiniana, and pasalubong-worthy goods, all in one dreamy space.
Opening just in time for summer, this year’s Filipino Design Studio will showcase tropical-inspired finds in a setting of earthy neutrals and natural materials that conjure up idyllic Philippine getaways.
This year’s line-up will include chic resort wear from Nino Franco, Azucar, and 17 Hacienda Mar; statement accessories from Flutter and Matthew & Melka; vibrant tikog bags and home accents from Eva Marie; sophisticated clutches from Adela Puls and Anmarie & Co.; and classy fans from Casa Mercedes. You can also look forward to mindfully-made personal care from Shepard, Savonille, and For Keeps; towels, bags, and bamboo items from 11th Earth Home Décor; and handwoven baskets, storage, home accessories from Habi Home, and other beautifully handcrafted Filipino finds.
