Celebrating 21 years in the industry, local brand Plains & Prints teams up with ICanServe Foundation, an organization dedicated to support breast cancer patients and survivors. Plains & Prints brought together a capsule collection called Heart of Fashion, gathering five of the country’s top designers–Rhett Eala, Randy Ortiz, Rajo Laurel, Maureen Disini and Vania Romoff.

“Unlike any other campaigns Plains & Prints has launched, this campaign is unique because this is our way of fulfilling our responsibility to society by being involved in one of the major issues women are facing today, which is breast cancer,” explains Roxanne Ang-Farillas, owner and founder of Plains & Prints.

A portion of the proceeds from the capsule collection will go to a program of the ICanServe Foundation called Ating Dibdibin, wherein they work with local government units to provide community breast exams and support those diagnosed with breast cancer.

She adds that this campaign is aimed to remind all women battling the disease that they have a strong support system and that their “battle is something we can win over and emerge from even stronger together.”

Inspired by the breast cancer survivors, the designers came up with pieces that reflect the strength and beauty of women.

Rajo shares the concept behind his collection, “It has always been my philosophy to empower women through my designs. I create clothes that women can wear with confidence. The first piece is a soft and flowy wrap dress, which is done in a very modern way, while the other is designed with more architecture. The contrasts reflect the complexity and duality of a woman.”

Randy leans toward a more athletic aesthetic, structured for the active woman. “For me, a woman is all about being versatile, so I created pieces that you seamlessly and easily transform from day looks into evening ensembles. This is for the 21st century woman,” Randy adds.
