See all the promising designers you ought to watch out for!

Every year, Slim’s Fashion and Arts School, the legacy of the late Filipino designer Salvacion Lim-Higgins, holds an exhibit featuring the designs of their students. Entitled “Contrast,” this year's concept is malleable to various interpretations. The theme is supposed to challenge the students to use materials initially thought as incompatible, a nudge for the young designers to work beyond their usual style.

The public exhibit will run until October 7 at the SM Mega Fashion Hall. Scroll down to take a peek at some of the country’s most promising fresh crop of fashion designers.
