For the first time ever, U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines, his excellency, Harry K. Thomas, Jr. hosted an event with fashion at the forefront. Entitled "Fashion Forward: A September Evening to Remember," it was a celebration of Filipino and American eco-style aiming to establish its commitment to promote eco-fashion, corporate social responsibility, and sustainable development.
To go with the theme, the ambassador's home was transformed into a lovely paradise, filled with lush greens and nature-inspired elements. An exhibit was also set up on the side, featuring brands such as Rags2Riches and Levi's who have been successful in promoting social responsibility in their own creative ways.
