MANILA – Here are some events that are happening this weekend.



Cotton will take centerstage at Gallery 7 of Pinto Art Museum on February 5, Sunday.

Dubbed "Algodon" (the Spanish word for cotton), the by-invitation-only show will feature the creations of some of Filipino fashion designers Pepito Albert, BARBA, JC Buendia, Tonichi Nocom, and Randy Ortiz. 

Bearing their respective signature styles, the designers will demonstrate the beauty, subtlety, and versatility of inabel fabrics made of pure cotton and dipped in organic dyes.

The fashion show, to be directed by Jackie Aquino, will tell the story of the inabel cotton — its agricultural origins, its centrality in the farming and weaving communities in Ilocos, and its eventual triumph on the fashion stage.


Megaworld Hotels & Resorts is offering discounted accommodation vouchers as it joins this year's Tour Travel Expo from February 3 to 5 at the SMX Convention Center in Manila.

Featured properties include Belmont Hotel Boracay, Savoy Hotel Boracay, Belmont Hotel Mactan, Savoy Hotel Mactan, Richmonde Hotel Iloilo, Belmont Hotel Manila, Savoy Hotel Manila, Kingsford Hotel Manila, Richmonde Hotel Ortigas, Eastwood Richmonde Hotel, Hotel Luck Chinatown, and Twin Lakes Hotel.
