“It’s nice to see my art being worn,” says 73-year-old Malabon native Benedicto Cabrera, more popularly known as BenCab. Celebrating 50 years in the industry, the National Artist is the latest to collaborate with local brand Freeway for their bi-annual collection that puts a fashionable spin on the works of different national artists.
Drawing inspiration from his muse, Sabel, Freeway creates a 50 piece collection consisting of shift dresses, tunic tops, bags, and scarves using the artists’ various works as the print for the fabrics. Definitely a must have for patrons of Philippine art. Scroll down to see our picks from the collection.
