Why You Should Get Excited About Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival | Clozette

This year, Manila Fashion Festival (MFF) is bigger than the last with the power of Panasonic. On its eighth season, and now dubbed Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival, the event embraces the theme Infinite Style, which aims to blur the line between high tech and high fashion. The fashion festival also aims to continue its tradition of sharing stories through fabrics and design. 

What else is coming to the festival this year? Keep on reading to find out. 

World-class tech

Art Personas’ CEO Ronnie Cruz believes that this partnership shapes an innovative and revolutionary transformation for the fashion industry, resulting in a world-class show where trends and technology combine.

From heightening the use of technology in every show — from backstage to the catwalk itself — to embracing firsts in the form of a photography and videography forum called Point of View (where known personalities in the industry will share their tips and secrets on getting the perfect shot with Panasonic Lumix) this year's PMFF invites everyone to see how Panasonic's cameras, televisions, and beauty tools and the festival's ever-constant nod to the world of design seamlessly intersect. 

More diversity in the lineup

With technology comes evolution and with evolution comes diversity. This is why the partnership between the tech giant and MFF champion passionate souls of varying ages, inspirations and stories. Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival will capture raw Filipino prowess more vividly, as talented designers from Cebu and Davao, along with some of MFF's regulars, will be participating to present their remarkable collections.

A celebration of new blood 

As always, another highlight of the event is celebrating new blood with SoFA Design Institute's graduation show running for the third time this year, where fresh creations from young designers will be showcased to raise the bar for Philippine fashion's next generation.

Here comes the sun, and with it is the sweltering heat that we have to face. As for us, we're keeping it cool by updating our stash of some summer essentials. From breathable sneaker designs to brightening cleansers, here are our must-haves for this season.

"Sneakers will always be a staple; they transcend trends. And that's why I'm always on the hunt for some good kicks. I want my sneakers to give both comfort and style, no less. The new Cole Haan 2.ZERØGRAND with Stitchlite™ technology is certainly right up my alley. It looks light on the feet, has a breathable design which is good for the humid summer, and the colour selections are really great — a perfect pick for this season!"




"I recently got started on a strength training program. Since I am one of those people who work out with music, I began searching for a sturdy pair of headphones to amplify my workout. The JBL Reflect Fit is designed to stay in place with its flexible neckband and ergonomic ear tips. It’s also sweat-proof and wireless so I never have to worry about fussing over tangled wires. It also comes with a heart monitor technology that is compatible with most workout apps. I’m calling it my workout buddy."



"When you have to leave the house even though it's super hot — that's summer for you! — the solution is easy dressing. My take on summer style with ultimate ease is a printed jumpsuit, and I already have my eyes on this emerald-coloured with floral print from Stradivarius' Spring/Summer 2018 collection."

"Shoes are all about taking us to great places and that's why I love mine with a hint of quirkiness without compromising comfort and style. The Rejina Pyo Barbara Suede Pumps from Net-a-Porter combines all that with its unique heel detailing mixed with a timeless red-and-black colour theme that can either mean business or casual fun. The carefree design is also perfect for the summer season!"

"The cleanser that I'm using right now is already running low, so I'm on the hunt for a new one. Since summer is fast approaching, I want to switch to an exfoliating cleanser that can help brighten my skin and prevent dark spots. The Snowise Cleansing Foam from Sulwhasoo appeals to me because not only does it promise to give a clearer complexion but the milky foam texture is something that I really prefer in my cleansers. Not a fan of harsh scrubs at all."

"As someone with pale lips, I am quite religious when it comes to applying lip colour. I love all kinds of lip finishes, from matte to comforting creamy lipsticks. Innisfree's latest range of Vivid Creamy Tints, which has 12 brilliant hues, is perfect for adding just the right amount of colour to my lips. Also, it features both bright and dark hues that can be matched according to my mood and outfit for the summer."

One of the most common backdrops for fashion photos is greenery — but it's definitely not a bad thing!  Foliage provides great texture and effortless elements in a photograph that works perfectly well with a well-curated outfit and we can't help but admire how the Community uses this to their advantage. 

Take our word for it as we share some of our favourite snaps using this template.
