Press Release: FASHIONABLE COUTURE FOR DOST EMPLOYEES
Take a look at the uniform designs made for the DOST-Philippines and presented during the Textile Stakeholders Conference at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City on Thursday.
The TELA Conference brought together the textile stakeholders and advocates from various sectors of the government, academe, private institutions, and social enterprises to focus on the production, utilization, and the challenges encountered in the industry of the Philippine Tropical Fabrics (PTF). The uniforms, which were modeled by selected employees from six government agencies, contain natural textile fibers like pineapple and abaca produced, spun, woven, and finished in the country.
The Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Textile Research Institute (DOST – PTRI) advocates the use of tropical fabrics as mandated by the Philippine Tropical Fabrics (PTF) Law prescribing the use of local tropical fabrics for uniforms of government officials and employees. The event was made possible by DOST – PTRI in celebration of the Philippine Tropical Fabrics Month.
The event was held @ Philippine International Convention Center ( PICC) last January 31, 2019.
