The Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said Philippine Fashion Accessories were recently featured at the "Eclat de Mode-Bijorhca 2012" international fashion accessories fair in Paris, France. In a news release over the weekend, the DFA said fashion accessories made of leather, embroidery, capiz, and other indigenous materials were featured at the Paris fair from January 20 to 23.
Eclat de Mode-Bijorhca International Fashion Accessories Fair is a twice-a-year event and an important destination for the accessories businesses, bringing together around 400 designers of fine fashion jewelry. It attracts around 15,000 visitors representing gifts retailers, department store buyers and buying offices, the DFA said.
“The four companies that exhibited their designs were Blue Planet, Unijel, Indian Summer and Designare Manufacturing. All are regular exhibitors in the fair and have built a market base in Europe,” the DFA said. Two of the four companies benefited from the support of the European Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines (ECCP). Philippine Ambassador Cristina Ortega said the Philippine-made fashion accessories were a testament to Filipino outstanding creativity and craftsmanship.
