The continued exploration of Fashion Photographer and Advertising Practitioner Bong Tindugan in the ever changing world of fashion led him to formally launch the "Fashion PRobe" project. This was initially started in 2009 in collaboration with various fashion designers aimed to update the artists' portfolio. The success behind that experience has driven Bong to learn more about the people behind the designs and their respective brands.

To achieve its goal, Fashion PRobe will strive to reach-out to the shakers and movers of the fashion industry. This project will also enable us to take a peek at the work of fashion brands and designers and share it through his photos.

Stay connected to Fashion PRobe and look forward to the next feature.

Fresh from completing Fashion Design at Fashion Institute of the Philippines, Fashion-PRobe now features the work of Ella Santos.
