SONA 2011: When Politics Meets Philippine Fashion

Politicians and celebrities are expected to make a fashion statement in this year's State of the Nation Address (SONA) that was held last Monday 25 July, 2011 afternoon at the Batasang Pambansa in Quezon City. The dress code at the Batasang Pambansa for the SONA is quite tricky—there are only so many fashionable ways to wear the barong, baro’t saya, Filipiniana, and Maria Clara while still keeping to the formality of the event.
Despite the emergence of new designs each year, the classic terno (primarily composed of a blouse, long skirt and a shawl) remains a mainstay in the so-called SONA red carpet of Philippine Fashion. Check out the following photos taken at the SONA 2011.

now open: multiply, the country’s biggest digital mall

Safe, convenient and hassle-free, Multiply connects virtual shoppers to 88,000 online stores

July 7, 2011 – With 88,000 shops accessible with just a click, Multiply has officially become the country’s largest digital mall that offers everything from today’s hottest fashion finds, gadgets, mobile phones to the latest in beauty, mommy and baby products.

What began primarily as a social networking site where millions of people went to share photos and videos, Multiply has evolved to become a fully functioning e-commerce site that not only connects shopping success for virtual shoppers but also real-life business success for its merchants.

“When Multiply made the shift into becoming an e-commerce site, one of the first things we wanted to accomplish was to be able to offer more than convenience and variety to the Multiply shopper,” said Jack Madrid, country manager of Multiply Philippines. “We also wanted to create an e-commerce platform that was reliable and secure that will be able to connect entrepreneurs to their market,” he added.

Safe, hassle-free shopping for virtual shopaholics

Do heavy work hours prevent you from visiting the mall? Trying to find that unique item without
success? Have you ever dreamed of shopping with your PJs on? Whether you’re looking for that perfect dress, the coolest gadget or a one-of-a-kind product, Multply’s 88,000 shops are open for shopping 24/7, and you won’t need to dress up to shop.

But more than convenience and variety, Multiply also offers a secure, easy-to-follow payment scheme through its partnerships with BDO Virtual Card, BPI, Paypal and G-Cash. To lessen purchasing disputes, Multiply also has a Buyer Protection Program for merchants that protects their customer’s purchases.

Sifting through 88,000 on-line stores can be exciting but for those who have no time to ‘window shop’

Multiply has a listing of its 17 product categories: Beauty and Fragrances, Baby and Toddler, Clothing, Shoes and Accessories, Collectibles, Computers, Electronics, Food, Flowers and Gifts, Health and Personal Care, Home and Garden, Jewelry and Watches, Movies, Music and Books, Professional Services, Sports and Outdoors, Toys and Hobbies, Video Games and Everything Else.

Real-world success found on-line

Packed with all kinds of features, the new Multiply site makes it easy, affordable and safe for any would-be entrepreneur to start and sustain his/her own business online, and possibly expand in an offline setting once the business becomes well-established.

Alwin Aguirre has been a successful Multiply merchant since 2008. His site features unique, customized hand bags for men.

Alwin said, “I’ve always had a fascination for bags and setting shop in Multiply was one of the best things I ever did. It’s quick, easy and convenient and saves me time to do other things I enjoy such as maintain a lifestyle blog on the side.”

Jonie Cheng agrees as she’s been a Multiply merchant for two years. Her digital shop focuses on maternity wear and she has been happy with the growth of her business.

“When I began, I was hesitant to put out such a big investment because I wasn’t as familiar with the mommy and baby market. Now I bring in about two collections a year. I’m very satisfied.”

Alwin and Jonie are two of the 2,500 new sellers that register and set up a business in Multiply every month. This number grows everyday and successful user experience has made

Multiply the most preferred online digital shop in the Philippines.

So, why wait? Sign up and start the business you’ve always wanted to put up.

Philippine Fashion Designers Pays Metrowear Tribute to Filipiniana

One hundred designers presented their interpretations of the terno and barong Tagalog in a Philippine Fashion event last Thursday night June 30, 2011. Participating in "Metrowear Filipiniana" are designers from all major design groups. The event, organized by Metro magazine, aims to commemorate the Philippines’ 113th year of independence.

Different interpretations of the traditional Filipino dress are expected to be seen during the event. The Young Designers’ Guild will present avant-garde, while the Fashion and Design Council of the Philippines and the Fashion Designers Association of the Philippines will take on red carpet gowns and cocktail dresses, respectively.

International Filipino designers Albert Andrada, Cary Santiago and Ezra will showcase theatrical creations. Those from Cebu will present bridal interpretations, while independent designers will do modern pieces. The show will also have a men’s wear collection, featuring designs by Anthony Nocom, Gerry Katigbak, Aries Lagat, Joey Samson, Jerome Lorico, Jeffrey Rogador and Barge Ramos, among many others.

A segment during the show will also showcase the works of Filipiniana masters Mike dela Rosa, Loreto, Patis Tesoro, Danilo Franco, Efren Ocampo, Greg Centeno and Nolie Hans. Other well-known designers who will take part in "Metrowear Filipiniana" include Rajo Laurel, John Herrera, Randy Ortiz, JC Buendia, Fanny Serrano, Avel Bacudio and Francis Libiran.

On top of these is an exhibit featuring jewelry, bags, accessories and shoe designs by Amina Aranaz-Alunan, Rocio, Ana Rocha, Nicole Whisenhunt, Michelline Syjuco, Cesar Gaupo and Mich Dulce. The terno is primarily composed of a baro (blouse), saya (long skirt) and panuelo (a cloth placed over the shoulders and back, just like a shawl) of the same pattern.

Initially considered as daily wear, it has become the attire for formal events and state occasions in the Philippines. The barong Tagalog, meanwhile, is an embroidered formal garment usually made of piña, jusi or banana fabric.
