[WATCH] Buy A Dress And Help Out Through Vestido Manila's Charitable 'Shop For A Cause'
Here's how circular fashion continues to help Filipinos in need during this pandemic.
In a special episode of EIC On The Move, Metro Society Editor-In-Chief Raul Manzano interviews Pam Quiñones of Vestido Manila and Stephanie Kienle-Gonzalez of Fashion for Others with Metro.Style’s Editor-in-Chief Geolette Esguerra in a 30-minute webinar about Vestido Manila’s current shop for a cause that has helped three major beneficiaries during the pandemic.
Vestido Manila is a curated fashion rental site co-founded by Pam Quiñones in the hopes of pushing forward circular fashion through our mindsets as consumers. It currently houses some of the most coveted designer pieces, local and international, that are consigned or donated by designers or many women of style including Stephanie Kienle-Gonzalez.
Pam and Steph recently collaborated for Vestido Manila’s Fashion for Others in order to fund the Moment Group’s Project Nourish, the Rajo Laurel Group’s PPE suit production for front liners, and PAGASA (People for Accountable Governance and Sustainable Action). Taking part of this initiative is as easy as shop, choose a beneficiary, and support a community!

Vestido invites you to join #FASHIONFOROTHERS and shop for a cause. We sought out women and designers with good hearts and great style to open up their closets for a benefit sale wherein 100% of the profits will go to funds to provide and deliver PPE’s and food packs to our health workers and other front liners, and survival food packs to communities where families have lost their means of livelihood. Shop, choose a beneficiary, and support a community! Watch out for our Fashion For Others collection will be posted on @vestido.manila’s IG account starting today
The idea is rooted from passing down hard-to-get designer pieces at a reasonable price to a second owner that shall breathe new life to these pieces and at the same time, bring life to others in need as well. 100% of the proceeds are given to the consumer’s chosen beneficiary and every week, Fashion for Others releases an outstanding transparency report that features how much the proceeds has helped others.
