For the first session to be held on June 12 via the UT Philippines’ Facebook community page, anime and manga fans, as well as gamers, will be treated to a themed quiz night, hosted by Jiggy Cruz, a comic book enthusiast and founder of the popular Youtube channel and podcast Geek Speak. Viewers will be tested on their knowledge of beloved series like Jujutsu Kaisen and thrilling games like Monster Hunter Rise. UNIQLO store vouchers will be up for grabs for the fans who are able to show their mastery of the different series and games.

 

In the following week (June 19) on UNIQLO Philippines’ Facebook page, seasoned and budding artists alike will be able to join an online print and art workshop hosted by Pau Tiu and Dyam Gonzales of Bad Student, and painter Isabel Santos, all of whom the brand has collaborated with for previous UT collections and designs. The first risograph studio in the Philippines, Bad Student’s Pau Tiu and Dyam Gonzales, who created a design for UT’s Salamat Collection in 2020, will take the audience through creating a risograph print for a t-shirt. Meanwhile, UTGP 2021 grand prize winner Isabel Santos will guide viewers through bringing to life your artistic vision through painting.

The first two in a series of digital sessions aimed towards reinvigorating customers’ love for graphic tees and how these can express the wearers’ uniqueness, UT Con 2021 will continue throughout the year, as a celebration of new UT collection launches.

This season’s UT collaborations feature the debut Jujutsu Kaisen collection. Designs in the lineup will showcase memorable scenes and popular characters from the manga series, including Yuji Itadori, Satoru Gojo and Megumi Fushiguro. Another much-awaited collection is the Monster Hunter Rise, featuring iconography and characters from the game, such as monster Magnamalo, Palico, and Palamute.
