The first day of Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival was a generous indulgence of sartorial pieces. The entire evening caught us in a woven web of luscious styles that depicted an amalgammation of varied stories and inspirations that gave life to breathtaking collections. There were trendsetting day to night casuals for the power playing cosmopolite, sensuous prints and fabrics that signified seduction and power, there were innovative yet comfy pieces, a selection of wearable art injected with couture techniques, deconstructed and reconstructed materials and an exploration of colors with ethereal hues also came to fore. Everything was a delight! We debated which ones would make it as the Editor’s top picks and we finally settled for these.
