With 'Infinite Styles' as its theme, the Panasonic Manila Fashion Fest champions boldness and innovation. This season, we saw vivid colours, playful patterns and the glamorous revamp of retro trends. It's all about keeping it fresh and cutting-edge to keep up with the dynamic taste of the modern fashionista. With that in mind, here are the beautiful designs that captivated us.
Marmalade orange top and houndstooth skirt combo from Yong Davalos
Signature trends from different decades merge seamlessly in this look. There's the block-coloured top with billowy sleeves which is a trademark of mod fashion. You can also spy a fanny pack — a trend that's big during the '80s — only this time it was fashioned to have a classier, updated look. Finally, the ensemble was unified by the retro houndstooth pattern. It's impressive how taking inspiration from the past created a look that's nothing short of fashion-forward.
Playful prints and fringes from Harvic Dominguez
A play of prints and patterns is evident in Harvic's latest collection. The designs are reminiscent of the hot, summer weather that reigns in the tropics for most of the year, and this one, in particular, caught our eye because of the careful balance in the colours and elements. The bold chevron top was matched with pale pink palazzo pants, but the playful, sartorial element remained intact throughout the look by the addition of the fringes and flower patches on the sides.
