  • Dak Bonite’s Fun and Vibrant Show Strutting to Queen’s I Want to Break Free, models who wore a vibrant array of reds, pinks, and lavender brought the house down with their playful demeanor and unicorn headbands. Dak Bonite’s Euphoria collection showcased tiered dresses and tailored suits for both men and women. The crowd-favorite show perfectly captured the retro vibe of the ’80s, complete with small-framed glasses in varying hues. Chris Nick’s Sultry Old Hollywood-Inspired Collection Black, velvet, high slits and backless dresses- these are what Chris Nick’s Rapture collection was all about. Inspired by old Hollywood glam and the now defunct Studio 54 nightclub, the floor-length dresses and perfectly tailored satin suits are the perfect balance of risqué and elegant.

Deconstructed denim was the star

  • Local brands and designers to love and shop––special occasion or no occasion     Inching its way closer to an exciting milestone, Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival wasted no time and pulled out all the stops early on. Its forward-looking ninth season served as a first crack at a new year, an antecedent to Art Personas’ celebration of five glorious years in the industry and the debut of its 10th instalment.

It largely did not speak to insanely radical ideas either. More attuned to the desires of a younger fashion audience, PMFF took its seasonal theme, encompassing shape, form and movement, to heart. For most designers, this meant fantastical but practical creations: shapes
