TO CAPITALIZE on Cebu’s position as a UNESCO Creative City for design, a one-stop-shop showcasing products of local designers is being eyed. “We need a home to feature our designs, from furnishing, finishing, fashion, paintings, and jewelry all in one place to showcase Cebuano creativity, featuring internationally known designers,” said leasing broker for commercial spaces Eppie Acusar. Internationally acclaimed brands like those of Kenneth Cobonpue, Nature’s Legacy, award-winning fashion accessories, among others, should be featured prominently in a “designers’ home” in Cebu, she said. Cebu City officially joined the UNESCO Creative Cities International Network under the design category on Oct. 30, 2019. UNESCO Creative Cities are laboratories of ideas and innovative practices that bring a tangible contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals through innovative thinking and action. — The Freeman
