[Post by Eena Acuña] “What is the other duck? You know… It’s the other duck. The outcast, thee underdog, the other. The Ugly Duckling. Embrace that inner other and you will discover that at the right time, your ugly duckling will transform into the beautiful swan in time. Don’t force it. Don’t avoid it. Embrace [...]

Style Manila on its 3rd Year

2010 is starting out to be one heck of a busy year. I meant to do this last December but I had no time to organise it, not to mention, no time to see it through. What am I talking about? Well, I wanted to give away some stuff to celebrate Christmas, my birthday and [...]

Kaye Olfindo Holiday 2009 Collection

VIDA, Kaye Olfindo, Filipino Fashion Designer | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

Early this month, news reached me that Kaye Olfindo had released her Holiday 2009 Collection with four (4) distinct dress designs perfect for the ladies who love playing dress up.

YOU by KC Concepcion for BAYO - KC Hoodie | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

The more people are informed, the higher the probability of them [...]

Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2009 - Michelle Lim | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

Sometimes, the reason why I’m not all too excited about checking out collections from local designers is, it can be expected that I’ll just be seeing gowns with elaborate and intricate designs, accents and embellishments. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not that I find them bland or poorly made, in fact, it’s the opposite. Most [...]

I just have to say this (again), the clip’s awesome! Love the concept. Love the cinematography. I even love the hair! Of course, how can I possibly miss it, I love the gown! I absolutely hearted the rosette appliques and the fluid skirt. Very romantic. Personally, I think fashion designers should look into doing this [...]
