'Project Runaway' was created by the Filipina woman's organization Gabriela as part of the annual woman's suffrage celebrations and to express displeasure with the exiting President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

The promotional copy reads, "This season’s collection. See how poverty and corruption came into fashion. Project Runaway -- A satirical fashion show." The show itself featured a 30-piece collection of haute couture gowns and dresses by well-known designers. Each design is meant to be a commentary on current social and political issues.
