A love letter from the memories of Marina Reyes-Antonio: Love, Marina was an art exhibition and fashion show opened on September 30, 2017, paying tribute to the fashion designer’s creative eye during her birth month.
Family, friends, fellow fashion designers, and lovers of art and heritage gathered on a lovely Saturday afternoon to celebrate the things Marina loved: art, fashion, food, flowers, and gifts.
The living room became the salon-styled runway. From the narrow walkway connecting to the dining room and bridal showroom came models, one by one, walking around tables and lounges of viewers to upbeat tracks.
The collections featured vintage Filipiniana pieces by Marina Reyes-Antonio, white and pink pastel bridal dresses by Malu Veloso, and embroidered floral ball gowns for debuts by Letlet Veloso.
Following the success and the launch of the home’s first exhibition Hearth: Heritage and Art at the Pablo Antonio Home, young artists Nigel Villaceran and Joshua Barrera returned for a second exhibition at the Yellow Room. Their paintings and sculptures evoked dream-like scenes imagined at the home’s garden.
