Manila Fashion Festival S/S 2016: My Top T-D-F Looks

10-28 FINAL-01

I rounded out To-Die-For looks and standout pieces bound to headline everyone’s shopping lists to fill in the gap in your closet.

Manila Fashion Festival is the country’s biggest and newest fashion clothing trade show held bi-annually in Manila, Philippines. The industry’s cop designers present their upcoming collections in a series of runway shows and presentations.  It is a platform for showcasing Philippine fashion with an ultimate twist.  Designers has a chance to express their artistic freedom to direct their own show, choose their own cats to slay the runway, create their runway set up, the music, the videos, etc. Their  intention is to collaborate with everyone. (Ronnie Cruz, CEO of Art Personas).  In short, Designers have the power to do their own flair and magical touch on the runway for their show. Wow! that’s really amazing! No doubt why festival-goers enjoy every single detail of the event. Every collection has a different taste and sweet treats to satisfy the sweet tooth of each fashion enthusiast.

I rounded out the To-Die-For looks and standout pieces from MFF’s SS/16 bound to headline everyone’s shopping lists come spring and summer to fill in the gap in your closet.IMG_3284


#SquadGoals : Me:Cats, are you ready?  Cats:We’re ready  to slay.

I loved every single look in this collection, so it was tough to choose just one. I’m a certified leather chic. I’m fond of wearing leather gears on a day to day basis so Arin’s collection was made for me! Just love it, it was made for me. (haha!)

Via Valencia

 Girly-girl looks are great, but if you want a crisp, structured style, then the androgynous look is more up your alley. Via has a collection which features androgynous pieces which are a fusion of modern, urban style and culture for an eclectic feel. It screams nothing but “Urbanity”. This fusion of flirty feminine fashion and menswear style is a new and refreshing way to hit the streets.  I really like the suit coordinates.


Eliz Marcelo

Eliz Marcelo’s collection proved that we don’t have to just stick to the shirt-and-pants combo to borrow ideas from androgyny. We can also take design cues from menswear while injecting a dose of femininity. She created timeless pieces that could be viewed as both comfortable and stylish.

Tony Evans  presented a romantic and elegant collection made up of  evening-wear and high-end cocktail dresses and coordinates, with some sharply cut pieces for good measure.The cats draped in Tony Evans dressed definitely sported the night’s best pieces.

The fabric and cuts are exquisite!


Banggo Niu
Banggo Niu created some serious buzz when the entire fashion industry was given a taste of underwater luxury in MFF’s spring/summer 2016 runway show. He presented Urban mermaid collection: style from the sea with modern twist . The mermaid as fashion icon gets even fresher, cleaner, and a little sexier for spring and summer. Pieces from the collection are modestly clean with aplenty of creams, powdery blues and shimmery metallic shades.


Banggo Niu’s “Sea Siren” and ” Water Nymp” collection reminded me of my childhood dream, to be a Mermaid.


Cheetah Rivera

I loved Cheetah Rivera’s breezy, all-white and yellow, minimalist, sleek and sexy collection. Cheetah assembles an army dressed in white and yellow, adorned with flower appliques. The line never fails to disappoint me. In awe from start to finish. The details are to die for!!

Cheetah, take a moment to celebrate simplicity.

This is just a sampling of the standout pieces from Manila Fashion Festival Spring/Summer 2016 that caught my eye and will probably fill in the gap in my closet.

What’s your pick??
