Not by the Book: Fashioning Design by Tippi Ocampo

Filipina designer Tippi Ocampo is launching a book entitled "Not By the Book: Fashioning Design by Tippi Ocampo" on November 24, 2008 (6PM) at the Greenbelt 3 lobby here in Manila. She will also have a fashion exhibit (curated by Yael Buencamino) which runs from November 24 – 30 at the same venue. I wish I could attend the event (I haven't gone out in weeks) but alas, I'll be away at that time.

The "Not By the Book" fashion exhibit of Tippi Ocampo curated by Yael Buencamino (Managing Director for the Ateneo Art Gallery) coincides with the book launch of "Not By the Book", a design book of the creative process of the designer.  It is an event that playfully merges the various disciplines of art and design, taking visitors along the creative journey up to the culminating fashion exhibit of a new  fashion creations.  The week-long display in the Greenbelt 3 Lobby will be interspersed with book signings and meet-and-greet activities with the designer aimed at spreading a younger, more dynamic, Filipino design philosophy to a broader audience.
