Here Are Our Favorite Runway Looks From Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival Days 1 To 3
From Dodjie Batu's killer tri-color look to Edgar Buyan's ribbed and ruffled camo dress, see all of our top runway picks here!
Just as expected, Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival gave us everything we’ve been missing since the pandemic. PMFF is one of the most prestigious runway shows in the Philippines. Days 1 to 3 were indeed a visual feast of Filipino talent and design!
On the first day, Avel Bacudio opened the show with his statement athleisure pieces. Inspired by the country’s greatest athletes, we can’t help but see these pieces on the likes of Kiefer Ravena and Hidilyn Diaz. Stealing the show with their head-turning ensembles, Designers Dodjie Batu and Melvin Lachica painted the runway red with each of their strongest looks. You can already tell that we are oh-so-obsessed with Dodjie’s tri-color ensemble, can we please talk about the over-the-top sleeves on this look! To cap off day one, it was only fitting to get our resortwear fix from Designers Windel Mira, Mark Yaranan, and Camlu x Creative Definitions. Linen, deep v-necks, and cut-out dresses are clearly here to stay all year long.
If day one was a vivid show of colors, day two was a celebration of the lack thereof. The strongest neutral-colored ensembles designed by Ann Semblante, Bamba Limon, Joshua Guibone, and Ziggy Savella took the runway by storm in full throttle. From tailored blazers, tulle mini dresses, to utilitarian looks, day two’s lineup definitely did not fail to give us outfit inspirations this upcoming season. Just in time to give us a quick breather from all the neutrals, Dino Lloren presented a love letter to Filipinas in the form of looks that are inspired by the colors of our flag. If you’re wondering which look wowed us the most, take a good look at the photo down below and see for yourself! Edgar Buyan’s ribbed camo-esque look came in as our hottest pick because of the dress’ cut and detail. There’s no doubt that the cherry on top of this dress is the ruffled detailing on the sleeves!
On the third day, all 24 PMFF designers collaborated for the first time with Japan’s world-leading fashion suppliers, Stylem and Yoshioka & Co. Each designer was given the opportunity to make three ready-to-wear looks using fabrics and materials from Stylem. If you’re eager to see all of these looks in real life, the PMFF x Stylem collection will be exhibited at the Gallery Space in Greenbelt 5, Makati City from June 5 to 13.
