Wearable Styles From The Runway You Can Cop | Clozette


Fashion Week in every major fashion capital has served as an inspiration for many a lady through its history and the latest season has been no exception. So we’ve condensed some styles for you this fall. If you’re looking for ways to pumpkin spice up your wardrobe this season, you’ve come to the right place.


Modern romance



Whether you’re a tomboy or a girly girl, there are ways to wear this style to suit either vibe. Pair a silky ruffled top with fitted pants and short heeled boots for an upgraded biker chick look, or go full glam in a maxi dress with striking prints ala Givenchy.

Punk is not dead 



Everyone owns a piece of plaid clothing, whether it’s a simple skirt or button-down shirt. But it’s time to breathe some new life into it. Pair your combat boots with some rolled up trousers to show them off and put on your best smirk because it’s time to revel.

Walking on the wild side 



Have animal prints ever really gone out of style? Choose one that’s as subtle as snake print or big and bold like leopard or zebra and you’ve got yourself an outfit that catches the eye and envy of everyone else in the room.

Going green 

 

The colour of the season is jade green or a dark teal, but whichever way you look at it, it’s a gorgeous shade to wear this fall. Add a pop of colour to your look with a ruched skirt, denim pants or a beautiful structured bag and you’re ready to step out.

Make people do double-takes with this understated style of sequins by incorporating them into casual daily looks, or make them scream fabulous as you turn heads with a full-length sparkling number. Either way, it’s fun, flirty and totally sexy.

It started out with hairclips. Now, we're seeing more and more sporting them in their bags. What are they? Beads. It's safe to say that the beaded bag trend is back. This classic design helps punctuate outfits and give them a more elegant and vintage vibe (think Lana Del Rey). We're definitely onboard.

Named after the Filipino word for fabric, Tela is the newest sustainable brand in town. It's designed by 19-year-old Alyssa Lagon, daughter to the forces behind popular Filipino fashion brand BAYO. "For BAYO, since everything is done in-house, I could see first-hand the textile scraps that are produced every year," Alyssa shares. "I thought to myself, 'What can I do to transform this waste into something useful?' And that's where the idea of creating a sustainable brand — which is now Tela — came to mind."

From the first step to the finishing touches, Tela's vision is to cultivate a mindful connection between the makers and buyers by engaging local craftsmen, through their partner, the BAYO Foundation. Excess fabrics from BAYO and other affiliate brands are donated to the foundation and is forwarded to weaving communities like the one in Argao, Cebu via ANTHILL Fabrics. Once these scraps are made into useable woven fabrics, BAYO Foundation buys them back and sells them to fashion brands. Thus, a cycle of sustainability is fostered.

Another daring move that Tela makes in the name of sustainable fashion is its decision to steer clear of buttons and zippers, which can add to environmental waste. When asked what could be done to fasten the dress and shape it to the body, Alyssa says, "We designed the pieces to fit the bodice through the use of adjustable fabric straps which you can tighten."

Tela kickstarts their debut with three collections: Refresh (spotlights natural fibres), Revive (highlights traditional weaving), and Renew (special upcycled pieces made from fabric scraps).

Aside from producing chic minimalist clothing, Tela also puts thought into the little things like its hang tags, which are made of mint seed paper that you can plant.


From 17 August to 16 September, Tela will be opening a pop-up store at the retail section of Manila House. Afterwards, Tela's pieces will continue to be available on Instagram at @tela.mnl.
