The winners of World’s Best Models – Philippines 2019, were recently proclaimed during a catwalk showdown of 26 young aspirants held at The Eye of the Green Sun Hotel in Makati.

Bagging the major title of World’s Best Models – Philippines were Wilson Yalung and Yumi Fernandez with runners-up: (1st runner-up) Zandra Liwanag and Majed Saleh and (2nd runner-up) Shine Solis and Victor Alvaran III.
Produced by Prowess Supremacy Production, Incorporated (PSPI) and Budget Journey Travel, Inc., this unique modelling competition with the noble advocacy of giving importance to the indigenous people, the tillers and the weavers who produce the main crops used in textile materials, the very reason why there is a fashion industry. The contest also focuses on the farm-to-fashion concept, meaning having a “fabric to form designs to wear.”
With this in mind, Prowess (made up of Joseph Stephen Santos, Edwin Uy, Dave Ocampo, Jinky Garcia and Jas Baldoza will give a part of the proceeds of the project as its contribution to help these farmers and weavers, in coordination with the National Commission for Indigenous People.
Prowess will serve as ambassadors of cultural integrity so the people in the industry will not forget their cultural heritage and increase their awareness on the importance of intangible cultural heritage by transmitting this knowledge through all generations. Prowess intends to be the voice of our farmers and weavers to help ensure that all designs are called contemporary indigenous-inspired designs.
