The Best of Levi Celerio by Freeway

Known for creating gorgeous and meaningful frocks based on our national artists' creations, Freeway now wows us with their newest collection inspired by Levi Celerio's genius works and compositions.

Levi Celerio is a composer and song writer. Famous for being a lyricist, his songs treasure life; express nationalistic sentiments and complete grand philosophies. He is best recognized as a Guinness Book of World Record holder for being the only person able to make music using just a leaf. Celerio was proclaimed National Artist for Music and Literature in 1997. A celebrated genius, Levi Celerio remained humble and lived a rather simple life until his demise in 2002 at the age of 91.

The  new Freeway National Artist Collection Series includes beautiful modern tailored dresses, sublimation print graphic tees, woven tops in chiffons and poplins, sexy printed knit mini dresses and accessories printed with words and lyrics from some of the most famous works of Celerio which includes Sa Ugoy ng Duyan, Saan Ka Man Naroroon, Ikaw ang Mahal Ko, Ang Daigdig Ko’y Ikaw, Ang Pipit and O Maliwanag na Buwan. It’s Freeway’s way of honoring Levi Celerio and his rich legacy to Philippine music.

Here are some of my picks from the collection:

Off shoulder sublimation knit tunic top with galaxy print and Levi Celerio's "Ang Daigdig Ko'y Ikaw" lyrics
Tailored knit jersey printed long sleeved dress with Levi Celerio's "Sa Ugoy Ng Duyan" lyrics
Color Block Chiffon Top with Printed Detail & Levi Celerio's "Ang Pipit" lyrics
Freeway gathered both fashion and music enthusiasts, media and bloggers, and the family and friends of Levi Celerio to celebrate the life and works of the Filipino music prodigy last June 4 at The Row. It's been a long time since I graced a Freeway event, but I was more than happy to support Levi Celerio and of course, hang out with all my blog friends.

Here are some event photos:
