Designer Frederic Navarro emerged as the winner at the conclusion of this year’s Mascota de Zamboanga, an annual design competition which honors the traditional mascota wardrobe as designed and crafted by upcoming and established Zamboangueño designers.

Navarro bested 10 other designers to bring home the top honors. Kurth David Luy came in second place and Al-Shamer A. Abdul claimed third place spot.

The three top designers took home cash prizes in the amount of Php 50,000.00, Php 30,000.00 and Php 20,000.00, respectively.

Aside from the designers, the Mascota contest also recognized the young women who modeled the mascota creations, and clinching the top three spots were Hyacinth Lim, Dianne Vargas and Henkel Julian.

Judging this year’s set of creations were City Councilor Myra Paz Abubakar, Amelia Chiong, and Dexter Jinete based on a criteria on craftsmanship (25%), design and concept (25%), fitting and presentation (25%), and stage bearing and impact (25%). — Jasmine Mohammadsali
