Empowering women through art: FilipinaZ fair showcases fashion, jewelry for a cause

The Philippines' Zonta Club of Makati and Environs Foundation's FilipinaZ fair is not just another avenue for up-and-coming artists. The annual fundraiser’s identity centers on its advocacy for women empowerment.

"FilipinaZ is made by women, for women. We promote our advocacy through quality art, fashion and jewelry," said Maritess Pineda, FilipinaZ committee chair. "The good thing about it is that everybody works hand in hand, because all of our artists will be donating a part or most of their earnings to support our beneficiaries."

Proceeds from FilipinaZ will go to Zonta’s various projects, including health services and livelihood training programs for disadvantaged women.
