Annual ‘Sinulid’ opens virtual gallery

Nostalgia by Tricia Butler.

The Fashion Design and Merchandising (FDM) students of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) has not let the coronavirus rain on their parade.

FDM students stayed productive during the lockdown and general quarantine with creations depicting their diverse perspectives and interpretations on the evolution and identity of the modern Filipino in relation to heritage, tradition and social and environmental issues.

This year, the department’s culminating activity, Sinulid, goes online unlike its previous exhibitions in malls. The Sinulid Virtual Gallery will showcase the students’ eye-catching, innovative fashion creations.

Similar to its previous installments, this year’s Sinulid collection conveyed students’ vision using sustainable and unconventional materials. These student-artists were able to manipulate these materials and create extraordinary ensembles with various techniques and disciplines they’ve learned at CSB.

Works by Pamela Madlangbayan, Eunhye Cho, Shanica Sy and Raya Abastillas reintroduce facets of the country and its citizens.

A timely topic is femininity and sexuality, and it all took shape in the creations of Angela Denise Santos and Sean Carlo Betco.

The divine creator and His creations, as well as Philippine folklore and mythical creatures, were visible in the designs of Shayne Casi, Kc Roshelle Dayao, Adrienne Carmela Cruel and Gianina Dwaigne Lilagan.

Erika Mae Ng opened a conversation regarding important issues and the innate beauty of Philippine agriculture in her output, while Miri Hwang and Coleen Aytona adapted a
