Levi’s® sets up permanent Tailor Shop in Iloilo

Heads up, style junkies: Levi’s® sets up permanent Tailor Shop in Iloilo

November 30, 2018- The Levi’s® Tailor Shop, where shoppers can step up their denim game through customization and personalization, is now in full swing at Robinson’s Place Iloilo, its first permanent home outside Metro Manila.

At the Levi’s® Tailor Shop, customers can work with a master tailor to place original patches, studs, and collectible pins for added attitude. To give wearers the perfect fit and style, the Levi’s® Tailor Shop also offers alteration services such as hemmings. For those who want an extra touch of ownership and character, there’s custom fabric paneling for trucker jackets and distressing for jeans.

Customization and personalization are key to the #LiveInLevis campaign, which aims to put Levi’s® at the center of culture. Through the Levi’s® Tailor Shop, customers get immersed in an experience where  Levi’s® apparel become their blank canvas for authentic self-expression.

“The Levi’s® Tailor Shop is a way of opening up new possibilities for denim wearers to express themselves and celebrate their authenticity. At Robinson’s Place Iloilo, we found an emerging hub of culture and lifestyle, making it a perfect home for the Levi’s® Tailor Shop,” said Charisse Chua, Levi’s Philippines Country Manager.

Songs from the Sea at ILOMOCA by Renowned Artist Nune Alvarado

Songs From The Sea

In the coastal city of Sagay in Negros Occidental, Filipino artist Nunelucio Alverado – the creator of Songs from the Sea – has made not only a home but a community.

“Inaawitan ako ng dagat,” says Alvarado of the peace he found in this place – the kind that has paved the way for a new kind of prosperity, one that feeds back into his community to enrich the lives of its members through art.

Songs From The Sea

His latest series of paintings and objects dubbed as “Stories of Restoration, Songs from the Sea” is composed of works that appear to be a far cry from the jarring depictions of life in the cane fields and mills for which Alvarado has been known. Instead, the artist takes inspiration from the community he helped create, giving back through art what he himself has gained after over three decades of practice.

Songs From The Sea

“Tonight marks another milestone for us at Megaworld Foundation as we celebrate the first year since we ventured into the intricate world of museum management, and already we are closing the year with yet another highlight exhibit. Nune Alvarado’s ‘Songs from the Sea’ is a moving masterpiece that showcases the beauty of Filipino culture even in mundane everyday experiences. This is only the beginning and we are committed to upholding the undeniable talent of local creative minds and the promotion and preservation of art in the entire region,” says Tefel Pesigan Valentino, Vice President and Head of Marketing and Business Development of Megaworld Lifestyle Malls.

Songs From The Sea

Taking inspiration from the everyday stories of home

A proud Negrense himself, Nunelucio Alvarado is a painter known for his exceptional work as a social realist. A founding member of the Black Artists in Asia – one of the most prominent collectives in the region – Nune, as his friends fondly call him, is known for large-scale depictions of difficulty and despondency in the cane fields of Negros.

Songs From The Sea

While these works have won him awards and recognition, they have also drawn critical attention to the plight of the sakada, as well as other marginalized members of the society. Alvarado now lives in Sagay City, where he runs Kape Albarako, a café and art space that is integral to the city’s creative community.

An Aarts and Culture Jewel in Asia’s ‘best township’

ILOMOCA is Megaworld’s first ever museum located at Iloilo Business Park, the company’s bustling 73-hectare township development in Western Visayas which was recently feted as the Country Winner for ‘Best Township Development in Asia’ at the 2018 Asia Property Awards held in Bangkok, Thailand.

The facility proudly embraces the distinction as the first art institution in Visayas and Mindanao exclusively dedicated to showcasing the works of mostly Filipino and Ilonggo artists within the realm of modern and contemporary art. As a major component in the development of IBP, IILOMOCA serves as a platform for Megaworld in reinforcing its thrust to preserve and promote the Ilonggo brand of artistry, culture and creativity.

CineKasimanwa: Looking Back

Ilonggo Cinema is rising. Our filmmakers have been winning in major national festivals and are selected in international festivals. Director Tara Illenberger’s most recent major win in ToFarm Film Festival 2017 proves our point. Filmmaker TM Malones is one of Cinemalaya’s finalists this year and was also a finalist in Cinema One last year. The same filmmaker won last year in an international film festival. Filmmaker Reymundo Salao’s film is a finalist at FACINE 24 in San Francisco, USA, competing with Ilonggo filmmaker and CineKasimanwa’s Festival Director, Elvert Bañares. These are just but a few records made by Ilonggo filmmakers in 2017.
