Pitoy Moreno's family shares wake details, asks guests to forego flowers

The Moreno y Reyes y Cruz y Alday Clan shared on Tuesday the details of the wake of legendary designer Jose "Pitoy" Reyes Moreno, Jr.

Members of the public may start paying their respects starting Wednesday, January 17, at the Capilla del Señor, Sanctuario de San Antonio Parish, Forbes Park, Makati.

Visiting hours are from 2 pm to 10 pm, and the viewing will be held until Friday, January 19.

Members of Moreno's family encourage visitors to make a donation to the J. Moreno Foundation Inc. instead of offering flowers.

The charitable organization provides grants for UP Manila College of Medicine interns and it also provides financial support for the Philippine General Hospital Children’s Ward and the UP Diliman College of Fine Arts.

The final mass for Moreno will be held at 10 am on Saturday, January 20, at the Sanctuario de San Antonio Parish. The burial will follow at the Manila Memorial Park at 2 pm.

Pitoy Moreno is a graduate of the UP College of Fine Arts and he was hailed as the "Fashion Czar of Asia" by PARIS Match Magazine for his contributions to the industry. Moreno was among the first to introduce Philippine textile to a global audience. In 2009, he was nominated to receive a National Artist Award. — LA, GMA News
