Kandama’s latest collection entitled "The Emancipation of Maria Clara" will be launched at New York Fashion Week S/S 2023, powered by Rise NYFW. The launch will take place on Friday, September 9th, 4:30 PM and will feature a dynamic fashion experience with other talented designers. The venue will be at Studio Arte, 265 West 37th Street, New York, NY, United States.
Kandama’s latest collection is an homage to the journey of the Filipino woman who has been adapting to the changes necessary for her to claim her prominent role in society and the World as opposed to the original Maria Clara archetype, which was a myth perpetuated by the Spaniards in order to subjugate strong powerful women who existed before they arrived.
By showcasing at NYFW, we get to share on a global platform our unique point of view as an indigenous cultural enterprise of what an empowered Filipino woman looks like, in the board room, the bedroom and everything in between.
