Former Pinoy Big Brother: Otso housemate Fumiya Sankai announced that he is launching a clothing line called BRIGE.
On his Instagram page, the former housemate shared with his fans that he is venturing into the clothing business.
"I have decided to start a clothing brand that has been a dream of mine for a long time. The brand name is BRIGE," he posted.
Fumiya explained the meaning behind the name of his brand saying, "BRIDGE means that I want to be a bridge between people, and I named it BRIGE by taking D from BRIDGE with the desire to eliminate (Dis)paragement and (Dis)crimination."
I have decided to start a clothing brand that has been a dream of mine for a long time. The brand name is "BRIGE". BRIDGE means that i want to be a bridge between people, and I named it BRIGE by taking D from BRIDGE with the desire to eliminate (Dis)paragement and (Dis)crimination. I was worried about whether to start the brand at such a time, but I thought that there was something I could do, and through this brand I hope everyone feels that we are not alone. この度、昔からの夢であった洋服のブランドを始めることになりました。 ブランド名は「BRIGE(ブリッジ)」です。 人と人の架け橋になりたいという意味のBRIDGE、そして軽蔑や非難(Dis)を無くしたいという願いを込めBRIDGEからDを取りBRIGEと名付けました。 こんな時期にブランドを始めるかを悩みましたが、こんな時だからこそできることがあるんじゃないかと思い、このブランドを通して誰しもが1人じゃないという想いになれるようとスタートしました。 @brige.international

"I was worried about whether to start the brand at such a time, but I thought that there was something I could do, and through this brand I hope everyone feels that we are not alone," he said.

"Excited na me waaa! Nakakaproud ka Fumi!" another netizen commented.
