Look of Style Awards 2013 :: Silent Auction for the Victims of Typhoon Yolanda

Pinoy goes Global” the theme for the 2013 Look of Style Awards, a competition for young designers to show their skills in promoting the Philippine talent globally. The show was held last November 14, 2013 at Buddha-Bar, Picar Place, Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City. True to its theme, competing designers embodied in their designs the cultural heritage of the techniques and fabrics of the Philippines while also achieving a different level of innovation and artistry. Aside from apparel, organizers of the event decided to add a new category for the competition, the accessories division. These designers competed for the coveted scholarship at Central Saint Martins (CSM) in London for a short course of their choice for the apparel category and Sheffield Hallam University in South Yorkshire for the accessories.

The Look of Style Awards is a competition held by the British Council in partnership with Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Look Magazine. Now on its fourth year, British accessory designer in the persona of Una Burke who specializes in leather accessories was invited to grace the event.  Aside from the glitz and glamour, Look of Style Awards 2013 imparted to everyone the importance of helping the people who are in need.

These past days, calamities hit the country. After an earthquake that occurred in Cebu, a super typhoon hit parts of the Visayas region causing severe damage that wiped out cities in the area-typhoon Yolanda with international name “Haiyan”. Donations and help from fellow Filipinos and other countries are continually arriving.

A silent auction took place for the benefit of the Yolanda victims.

On November 11, Ms. Carmencita Sioson, editor-in-chief of Look Magazine, stated, “due to the recent typhoon Yolanda which has devastated so many of our fellow Filipinos, we will be having a silent auction during the LOOK of Style Awards. Our finalists and judges will be auctioning off one of their pieces to help raise funds for the victims and their families. Let’s all work together to help those in need. Thank you!” #lookmagazineph #lookofstyleawards2013 #lookofstyleawards #yolandaph


The show started at around 9 in the evening. After the whole program, the models wore outfits that each designer pledged for the auction. Here is a video of some of the pieces from each designer’s collection that will be offered in the auction.




In our own little ways, we can help those in need. This auction is just one of the many ways we could help our fellowmen who are in need.
