I took Ballet lessons when I was 5 years old. I loved it, even though I was a fat kid. I remember getting ready for my car ride to Metro Dance and Arts Studio with my sister and yaya. At that time, ballet was quite an “in” thing for kids our age. I think it still is, although I haven’t been to any presentations or recitals recently. One of the ballet dancers I looked up to that time was Lisa Macuja (now an Elizalde). She was so graceful and loved so “light” every time she danced.


Just like me, Freeway, a retail brand that we know of so well, adores Lisa Macuja- Elizalde. So, with this, they give tribute to Lisa Macuja- Elizalde in their National Artist Collectors’ Series. The prima ballerina was the inspiration for yet another creative fusion of fashion and works of art. Lisa is set to ease into retirement within the period of three years and will dance her last full-length “Swan Song Series” in a series of performances. The production kicked off last year with “Swan Lake” and “Romeo and Juliet”. The entire series will unfold in the next two to three years.


To support this significant event, Freeway created a special edition “Swan Song Series” sublimation tee-shirt that immortalizes the signature ballets of Lisa Macuja-Elizalde. This limited edition collection is now available in all Freeway stores nationwide (www.freeway.net.ph).
