MAYOYAO, Ifugao,  Aug. 14 (PIA) - - Top fashion designers and models in the province hold design and modeling competitions using local resources during the just concluded Lenong festival here.


The event served as a training ground for creative Ifugao designers to exhibit their talents in designing and also for the youths to express and develop their artistic talents in modeling.

Showcasing their designs in the casual, summer, formal and evening gown competitions were  Architect Oscar Binay-o of Aguinaldo;  Jerrymiah Bubod of Alfonso Lista , Rio Harris Gopeng of Mayoyao and Chie Dulnuan and Councilor Reneboy Millano of Lamut. The designers have their own respective models.
