Freeway x Vicente Manansala

DSC_0282

I was invited by a couple of blogger friends to attend the Vicente Manansala tribute by Freeway in Glorietta 5. I like it that brands like Freeway and Solo have used the clothing industry as a medium to offer our national artists  in a consumable format, whereas more people can see and appreciate it. Let’s admit it, some people are appalled by the thought of museum (though I really really love to go to museums.) By putting it into clothing, people do not just use it – they buy it because they appreciate the design and the artist himself.

White polo with button detail: Solo, Striped white-blue cardigan: F&H, Reversible jeans: Oxygen, Military boots: Thrifted

I took the chance to use my Solo shirt which I haven’t used for a while. Was going for the preppy x little edgy look but I think the stress I have to get myself into before coming to the event really did me bad. Haggardo versoza lang :P

Bloggers on a photo frenzy!

I love Freeway x Solo x Ensembles’ boutique in G5! So warm and welcoming. I also like their chandeliers and most importantly – their clothes! I plan to buy a few pieces.

Then there was a fashion show… I could swear, the models looked beautiful in those outfits. I wonder how will the men’s pieces look. Yes, Freeway told us there will be a men’s version! I’m excited for it!
