PhilFIDA Director Dr. Edison Rinen of Region I and II gives his opening remarks at the Farmers' Field School on Cotton Production held in Tesoro del Monte, Quezon, Philippines. He credited Patis Tesoro's invaluable contribution to the revival of cotton farming among other fibers.
The opening message of Dr. Edison Rinen of the Department of Agriculture's Philippine Fiber Industry Development Authority (Phil-FIDA) at Tesoro del Monte, Quezon for the second session of the Farmers' Field School on Cotton Production enhanced the already positive morale of the participants last February 9, 2015.
The Phil-FIDA Director of Regions I and II stated that Patis Tesoro's enthusiasm in the revival of abaca, pinya and this time, Philippine cotton, further inspired Phil-FIDA to continue the Farmers' Field School which began last November 24, 2014. Watch the youtube video.
And as the revival of Philippine cotton continues, the fashion show of Patis Pamintuan Tesoro for Rustan's, "La Collection Rouge" at the Sofitel Plaza last February 17, 2015, shows a promising future for the fashion industry in the Philippines where locally grown indigenous and organic raw material can create sophisticated yet self-sustainable works of fashionable clothing that the country can truly be proud of.

Inspired by French Chinoiserie design, "La Collection Rouge" is Patis Pamintuan Tesoro's fashion collection for Rustan's.
On February 7, 2015, Patis Tesoro gave a talk on Sustainable Fashion Design at the 9th Global Business Conference at De La Salle University in Manila.
The process of making pinya fabric projected silently in the background as Patis began by saying that truth be told on that Saturday morning, she should be gardening at PatisTito Garden Café in San Pablo, Laguna! She explained however that she wanted to seize the opportunity to speak to young minds on the importance of passion in entrepreneurship and commitment to heritage conservation.
Patis candidly gave her life story peppered with tongue-in-cheek witticism which made many a young lass in the audience giggle and blush. The narrative was told in remarkable detail likened to the intricate patterns seen on her designs for her upcoming fashion show for Rustan's at the Hotel Sofitel Philippine Plaza on 17 February 2015.
Along with another speaker, Dr. Frank Wadsworth, Head of Division of Business, Indiana University - Purdue University Columbus, and DLSU College of Business Student Council President Juancho del Rosario (whose mother's wedding gown was made by Patis), she answered questions from DLSU students which made for quite a flavorful morning.
