MeshMinds at the AVPN Conference 2019

Every year, the Asian Venture Philanthropy Network (AVPN) Conference welcomes a diverse group of funders and resource providers from around the globe to take part in the largest gathering of social investors in Asia. Focusing on promoting mainstream private investors to strive towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the AVPN Conference seeks to break down barriers to bring in the broader capital markets into the social investing network.

For 2019, MeshMinds is proud to be invited to the AVPN Conference from 25 to 28 June to showcase the Lalapatos shoes collection. The Lalapatos shoes are a collaborative effort between Zapateria Hub and Maco Custodio, with the entire project being supported by the British Council.

The Lalapatos shoes collection focuses on bridging the strengths of Maco’s creative vision with the artistic beauty of various local Filipino communities. Each pair has traveled across the cities of Manila, Rizal, and Marikina; and entails days of craftsmanship. Most distinctively, the Lalapatos shoe features the interweaving of sustainable fashion via upcycling together with the artistic beauty of their place of creation. MeshMinds enabled the promotion of the Lalapatos through implementing Augmented Reality (AR) effects to highlight the creative process behind the construction of the shoe. Through AR, MeshMinds is able to showcase the Lalapatos to audiences in a more meaningful and engaging way.
