The sewing room of Project Runway Philippines, the local adaptation of the US reality television series, is once more abuzz with activities as a new batch of up-and-coming designers from all over the country competes to become the next big Filipino fashion designer.
What better way to power up the fashion designing competition than to have Brother’s top-of-the-line sewing machines “run” the show. A trusted Japanese global brand with commitment to quality, Brother has the most extensive sewing machine ranges in the market consisting of innovative, easy-to-use, high-quality, feature-rich products designed to meet the needs of every sewing enthusiast or entrepreneur.
As Project Runway’s official sewing machine, Brother provides the sewing machines used by the contestants not just in the Philippines but also in other countries where the show has local versions. Brother is also sponsoring the additional Php250,000 cash prize of the winner.
Brother Philippines President Glenn P. Hocson said, “Brother Philippines has supported Project Runway Philippines since Season 1, and we are happy to again be a part of this show which encourages Filipinos to come up with world-class designs. We always believe in Filipino ingenuity and creativity, and it’s been our pride and joy to empower Filipinos to maximize their creative potentials with the Brother sewing machine.”
Added Hocson, “Each sewing machine model is designed with the goal of encouraging users to be more creative and have fun while creating their masterpieces.”
Contestants are using the Brother NV-55P touchpad enabled (computerized) sewing machine, which will enable contestants to sew, quilt and do decoration stitches. The perfect sewing solution, NV-55P is packed with numerous features such as 135 built-in stitches, including 10 buttonholes which you can conveniently access from the touchpad. What’s more, the built-in lettering allows you to personalize different stitch patterns to create labels or monogrammes.
For edging, Brother also provides the show with the Brother M3034D easy-to-use home overlocker with multiple features. It allows users to professionally sew seams, trim excess fabric and over lock raw edges all in one time-saving step. It features three or four thread cut-and-sew overlock sticks, easy to follow threading, and a fast and simple lower looper threading system. It also has a free-arm or flat bed convertible sewing surface to make work a lot easier.
Notably, Brother’s reliable and award-winning products also include printing and imaging solutions, label-makers and their respective consumables.
