Freeway Art National Artist Collection Honoring Nick Joaquin8/22/2009Shen
Freeway partnered with the most celebrated Filipino author in the english language, Nick Joaquin. He penned numerous books that has touched the Filipino hearts. It couldn't be more appropriate to show this kind of love for the Pinoy artistry.
"Nick Joaquin is not just a National Artist, but Nationalistic. At the core, along with his talent, was his love of country. It makes one appreciate his work more, that due to humility, open mindness and love of his surroundings that he played a significant part to make our history." - Freeway
These clothes are more than fashion. It's a statement of being a true Pinay and Pinoy.
