On March 12, designers Kate Torralba, Cary Santiago, Jun Escario, and Arcy Gayatin will send couture creations down the catwalk for “Women for Women ’10,” the latest fund-raiser by the Junior Chamber International (JCI) - Zugbuana. Hailed the biggest style event in all of Cebu, the show will feature society ladies as models for these top Cebuano designers, who each significantly helped to shape the island’s fashion landscape. The new collections of Topshop, Mango, Loalde, and Orange Juice will also be included in the runway show, which aims to benefit a very worthy cause.

Women for Women, better known as W4W, is a humanitarian effort by the all-female JCI - Zugbuana through which privileged women reach out to less fortunate ones. The proceeds of this year’s fashion show will profit the Fellowship of Organizing Endeavors (FORGE), an NGO which addresses the needs of sexually exploited children. In the Philippines, the sexual abuse of children through rape, prostitution, and pornography has remained a scourge on society for many years—and will unfortunately continue to do so, unless the necessary steps are taken to eliminate it.

The “Women for Women ’10” show seeks to do just that by raising funds, awareness, and nonstop support for the youngest victims of sexual exploitation. If you are in Cebu this week, drop by the Arctic Hall of the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino and make a donation for the eradication of abuse.
