Pitoy Moreno includes in his portfolio over 43 shows with celebrity models and well-known personalities—most of whom came to celebrate and participate in his most recent show held at the Isla Ballroom of the EDSA Shangri-la hotel.
Featuring over 100 pieces of Moreno’s formal Filipiniana, the show highlighted Moreno’s exquisite detailing: hand-painted florals and butterflies, hand-sewn lace, embroidered details, or ethnic-printed weaves.

We should revive hand-painted artworks like these.
A commemorative exhibit also featured couture dresses, wedding gowns and ternos that Moreno created for women such as former First Lady Imelda Romualdez-Marcos, Imelda Cojuangco, Fortune Ledesma, Dee Zobel, and actress Susan Roces.
