Anthony Ramirez

Falling deep into romance as inspired by la vie Parisienne, this collection caught our eyes with its flow-y fabrics and muted shades. 

Philips x Brit Tripudio

Bright, bold, and adventurous, this collaboration between Brit Tripudio and electronics brand Philips brought the edge to the runway that's long been seen in international catwalks but has been kept fresh and captivating by adding an Asianised flair. 


As much as we love minimalism, the combination of modern cuts and pieces as accentuated by traditional prints and patterns in this collection left us breathless.

Martin Bautista

This collection said goodbye to conventional cuts and proved that the catwalk is the place for innovation. The palette used for the pieces extend to an extreme range, switching from bold to neon to pastel, as balanced out by intricate details and designs. 

Philips x Jaz Cerezo

Chic and minimalistic pieces with inspired patterns that accentuate the shape of the fabric, this collection exudes versatility and overall class that truly captured our attention.

An inter-Vogue union

Kat von D calls out Makeup Revolution

We all love finding a cheaper version of our favourite high-end or luxury beauty products. But Kat von D, who has her own cosmetics line, is not so sure of how she feels about another brand having products that are so similar to hers. Watch as she shows the process she goes through in creating her own line, and tell us what you think about makeup dupes.


YouTube superstar NikkieTutorials and Meitu have collaborated on a project that would like to strengthen the call for the end of makeup shaming. We give a resounding yes to this! We say no to makeup and bare face shaming.

The Beautiscoop
