Kawaii in Manila 2: The First Philippine Kawaii Convention
The meaning of Kawaii has gone beyond its original sense. It is no longer just a word that means “cute,” “pretty” or “adorable” in Japanese. Kawaii is now considered a global phenomenon because of its great influence in art, fashion, beauty, food and various consumer products. It is not just an appreciation for all things cute and fun but also a way of looking at the world in a happy and positive light. Kawaii is a culture enjoyed by Japanophiles (Japanese culture enthusiasts) from all over the world including the Philippines.
In 2013, the ultimate kawaii experience was brought to the Philippines through “Kawaii in Manila” – a kawaii lifestyle workshop filled with a variety of kawaii-‐related activities. Following the success of the workshop, the Kawaii PH team decided to take the ultimate kawaii experience to a whole new level by staging the first ever Kawaii convention in September 6, 2014 – Kawaii in Manila 2.
Kawaii in Manila 2 is a day-‐long convention dedicated to promoting the interest and appreciation for the kawaii culture through various kawaii-‐related programs and activities. Kawaii in Manila 2 aims to unite people who share a common interest in Japanese culture, animation, fashion, and everything in between. In addition to providing an avenue where kawaii enthusiasts and Japanophiles can get together, Kawaii in Manila 2 can also be a great opportunity for Japanese-‐themed and kawaii-‐ related brands to be introduced and to conduct business.
