Style Spotted: Manila Fashion Festival

Go to any fashion event in a simple jeans and t-shirt and you will definitely be the odd one out - the flashier the outfit, the better, because clothes are works of art. Going to events like Manila Fashion Festival Spring/Summer 2016 is a privilege because you get to be surrounded by so many creative and talented people, make new connections with people you never thought you would, and of course, you get to wear your fiercest outfit - it’s not just the models who get to look gorgeous!

Attendees of the festival ranged from celebrities, to bloggers, and to your very own Clozetters who all got to show off their own personal styles in a variety of head-turning outfits. If you weren’t able to make it to the 4-day affair, we’ve got you covered below by showing your our seven favourite looks, from neutral, monochromatic outfits, all the way down to edgy and classic frocks!


Sharlee Inavit

Sharlee modernized her white, 70s-inspired lace-up dress by pairing it with a white blazer and cream pumps, and sporting a black bag to make the colours pop even more.

Nadine Zabala

Another outfit inspired by the 1970s - Nadine wore a dark green bell sleeved dress that looked sophisticated and flattering when worn with a pair of black wedges and a white clutch that brought out each piece’s colour.

Colin Dancel

Colin looked fabulous in her all-black outfit composed of a blazer, cigarette pants, sleek heels, slouchy purse, and a brassiere that was peeking through her sheer, lace top!

Elie Anne Santillana

Ellie rocked a grunge look by wearing a statement shirt dress, combat boots, and a dark, vampy lip. Topping off her look is her slick bun, allowing the focus to be entirely on her outfit!

Celine Mallari

Celine looked every bit a fashionista by mixing prints and textures with her satin cropped blouse, striped, mid length skirt, lightweight military jacket, and shiny, black oxfords.

Jol Galang

Jol opted to for a classic, fitted beige-gold dress with a plunging neckline and some black heels, which were all given a modern twist with her dark lips.

Liz Dumdum

Liz wore a simple pink silk blouse and a navy blue mid length skirt to give way to the star of her outfit, her pink, ballerina-inspired heels.
