CELEBRATED but low-key designer Pepito Albert will have his first ever pop-up at Katutubo PH on May 20-22 at BENCH Tower, BGC, Taguig.

The Katutubo PH, a selling event held every few months a year (except during the pandemic), will have more than 50 local brands to celebrate our love for fashion, foods, and everything local at the BENCH Tower, BGC.

Pepito Albert will join Katutubo regular designers like Randy Ortiz, Rhett Eala, Lulu Tan-Gan, Vic Barba, as well as other designers making their Katutubo debut such as Hindy Weber-Tantoco and Jasmin Baac of Bagoyan.

Katutubo will also have the launch of a new brand by Leo Bartolome in collaboration with Adante Leyesa called Edited Limited, a brand that designs pieces that promote ecological sustainability in fashion.

There are also new accessory brands—My Gems and Orias bags, to name a few. Also joining are designers whose brands made headway abroad such as Mich Dulce and Studio Sug by Bea Constantino.
