Fashion workshops conducted by John Ablaza, the international designer from the Philippines, in the country recently are set to transform the lives of the participants. Ablaza conducted workshops in Bulawayo and Harare on design techniques, use of natural materials and avant-garde design as well as collaboration with artisans.

So impressed was Ablaza with the talent and creativity among the designers and artisans he met at the workshops and he is committed to working with at least three designers to mentor them through, but more significantly, open doors of opportunity to the international fashion arena by inviting them next year to the Philippines and the USA.
