#MetroStyleWatch: The Best High Tea Outfits We Spotted At The Launch Of Mark Bumgarner's New RTW Studio!

ICYMI, this week's talk of Philippine fashion town was the launch of Mark Bumgarner's newest studio.

Located in Greenbelt 5, along the strip housing the ateliers of Filipino veteran designers like Francis Libiran, Albert Andrada, and Charina Sarte, lies BVMGARNER STUDIOS, the Metrowear 2017 designer's newly launched dust-pink-and-gold themed store. 

This dainty nook is also where the former race car driver and now designer-to-the-stars debuted his 73-piece luxury accessories line, alongside RTW dresses, hand bags, and shoes.
