Raffles Makati saw the strongest women with their friends and loved ones who support them in every step of the way. The ICanServe Foundation once again held a gathering for a cause in partnership with Philip Stein, staging an auction and runway shows that featured the country’s top designers to support their flagship program, Ating Dibdibin. Also known as Take Your Breast Care to Heart, they aim to bring awareness about cancer prevention and to champion early detection.

The auction was hosted by Tessa Prieto-Valdes before the five designers participated in the runway show that featured women, influencers, and celebrities alike who walked in support of cancer victims and survivors.
For Randy Ortiz, he entitled the collection Lourdes as an homage to his own mother who was taken by cancer. His 12-piece collection was headed by Iza Calzado and Derek Ramsay.
Dennis Lustico had Matteo Guidicelli walk for the designer along with Beth Romualdez and Via Reyes who brought to life Lustico’s romantic floral frocks.
Mark Bumgarner created gowns with a goal to empower women and to boost their confidence. His designs were modeled by his friend Heart Evangelista, along with Chuchu Madrigal, Alex Eduque and Tang Sison.
Patty Ang played with a neutral scheme in her collection, while his muses Carla Abellana, Karylle, and Megan Young flaunted her billowy and ruffled creations.
Rosanna Ocampo, on the other hand, showed a collection that embodied women’s femininity through florals and graceful silhouettes.
