This upcoming Fall/Winter 2016, fashion in the Philippines will be incredibly different as a variety of colours, textures, and prints dominated the runways in Manila Fashion Festival’s latest 4-day affair at EDSA Shangri-La Hotel. To sum it up, the fashion trends for this coming season will go back to basics, but with a bold and bright twist!

Presented by Art Personas and co-presented by Zeal Cosmetics, AT Control, and Swiss watchmaking brand, Seven Friday, F/W 16 stood out for its intimate setting, cozy atmosphere, and bringing international and local brands, designers, and consumers closer together. And with their collaboration with ZALORA Philippines and AVA.ph, they're bringing fashion to a new reach -- from the runway straight to your wardrobe!  

So if you want to get ahead of the fashion trends and want an exclusive look on what’s to come in Philippine fashion, keep reading below for the pieces we fell head over heels for!


A shift masterpiece

Nothing says elegant quite like an A-line shift dress, no? Plus with its bright print, it’s no wonder why we can’t wait to wear this ZALORA dress everywhere we go! 

Lace on lace

The slip dress is back, but this time, it’s coming in lace form! This black and white piece by Rhett Eala combines innocence and sensuality with its dual colours and stunning embroidery!

A nod to pop art

Giving a nod to the ‘pop art’ movement in the 1950’s and 1960's, this youthful sweater from Dress Coke Red Label will surely be a hit for everyone!

Deliciously chic

The 90’s are definitely back with another take on the classic slip dress. But this time, Tipay Caintic adds a fun and glittering sushi print, allowing this dress to be worn in all seasons in tropical weather!

Ethereal Wonderland

Romance, elegance, and style – three words we would use to describe Gabbie Sarenas’ pastel floral dress. This frock deviates from the usual earth-toned pieces Fall/Winter collections are known for by opting for a dreamy mix of shades that perfectly complement the season!


With its contrasting cuts, shapes, and colours, this sleek dress from ARIN will allow anyone who wants to bring out their inner Greek goddess shine.

Bold and oriental

Bengt Enrique has made a real statement-maker. If you feel like your outfit needs an ‘oomph’ to transform or complete it, then this gorgeous jacket will answer all your prayers! Its gorgeous mix of blues and reds will complement any shade it’s paired with, as well as give your OOTD a bright pop!

ZALORA unveiled the Zalia 2016 Festive Collection at the inaugural Zalora Style Awards at CATO on Thursday night. Zalia Homme, its first exclusive capsule men’s collection, was presented at this showcase. The festive Ancient World Romance collection was inspired by ancient architecture and allure of culture rich cities such as Rome and Abu Dhabi. Elaborate and detailed ornaments and embellishments were seen in many glamorous outfits from Zalia 2016 Women’s Collection. 

This show stopping number with floral patterns and side slits on the sleeves marked the opening of the Zalia showcase at Zalora Style Awards. The elegant and flowy silhouette is certainly very flattering and apt for parties.

This glamorous ensemble of Jacquard Embroidered Peplum Top and Gradient Sequin Skirt will definitely draw attention towards the wearer. The intricate gold-tone embroidery and waist-defining belt adds an interesting dimension to the popular peplum style. This dazzling sequin mermaid skirt is figure-flattering while stirring up visual interest with a play on the gradient hues.

This Embellished Wide Sleeve Swing Top when paired with Sequin Mermaid Skirt is a bedazzling combination which will help you to stand out from the crowd. The subtle embellishment on the neckline complements the glamorous and elaborate all-over sequin pattern on the mermaid skirt.

This Placement Sequin Mermaid Dress aces the balance of glamour and elegance with an ethereal feel. This romantic mermaid dress with beautiful sequin placements which bring out its figure-flattering silhouette will surely score more than a few visual interests.

With the weather heating up the region, nothing seems more apt than stocking up on summer-ready OOTDs that are all about keeping things feeling light, flowy, and airy--bringing a much needed respite from the heat and humidity.

So in keeping with our excitement at having ASOS rock the runway during our Clozette Style Party (it'll be their first runway show ever in Singapore!), we've picked out 5 of our favourite items from their SS16 Collection, perfect for looking chic and cool this season. 


ASOS Knitted Top In Off Shoulder With Stripe Ruffle Detail


Let your skin breathe and take in the summer sun with this off-shoulder top. The ruffle detail adds movement to the piece, matching the fun, effortless mood of summer. Pair it with high waisted jeans and slip on sandals.


Lace-up footwear is all the rage these days, so it's no surprise why we're loving this pair of lace-up wedges with printed textile detailing and raffia-style sole. It'll look great paired with a flowy summer dress, perfect for brunch dates with your girl friends.


For something a little dressier and perhaps even appropriate for work, we're all for this floral tiered dress. It's structured and fitted, yet brings a cool summer flow with its tiered layers that move effortlessly with every turn.
