Zinnia Towers – Green Condominium for Your Fashionable Lifestyle

Choosing a condominium can be compared in choosing a clothes to wear or accessories to flaunt. Just like clothing and accessories new condominiums are sprouting not only in Metro Manila. Also the latest design in clothings are more greener and earth friendly, and it is good to know that there are those which are still concerned with our environment by being 'green' like Zinnia Towers.
After having recently awarded by DENR for Sustained Good Performance in the Implementation of Republic Act 9003 last March 6, the expectation of Quezon City residents is for their city to live up to it. This proves that a good place to live is like wearing a good clothes, residents are more confident that Quezon City is probably one of the better cities in the metro.

I also noticed that DMCI Homes developers are like innovative fashion designers, they try to be different with others but they are still making sure that it complies with Quezon City’s commitment of green building programs. Given this, DMCI ushered in the Lumiventt Design Technology in Zinnia Towers, a new project, which is a first in the area. This project is incorporating DMCI Homes‘ signature green design that allows ambient lighting and fresh air to and fro the building. Something that is not very common in old school condominiums.

By the way, the Zinnia Towers has 2 high-rise buildings embraced by luxuriant greeneries, blending with its synchronic tropical-themed structural design. So if you are looking for a Condo within the vicinity of New Manila, Quezon City, this is the one place you might want to head over and consider. Also, here are its features that will surely influence your liking:

  • Close to where it matters
    • While everything may be nearer, the hassle brought by the daily metro activities can take its toll on the urban dwellers. With residential condominiums budding right next to the busy city streets, wearied urbanites are finding it harder and harder to have their peaceful nook in the city. Good thing DMCI Homes has resolved this by offering Zinnia Towers.
  • All the Space You Need
    • DMCI Homes definitely had the young families in mind during the conceptualization of Zinnia Towers. Open spaces have been strategically planned for everyone to enjoy: swimming pool complex, several play areas, garden trails and parks, podium amenities and roof deck gardens as well as wonderfully designed Clubhouse.
  • A Sanctuary of Ease and Security
    • Condo living is made worry-free at Zinnia Towers with a tested Property Management Office (PMO) to take charge of the everyday operations ensuring the security and maintenance of the property and its facilities.
  • Contemporary Tropical Community
    • The Zinnia Towers project is designed to attract end-users and upgraders from Quezon City and the surrounding cities like Manila, Navotas, Malabon and Caloocan who are planning to upgrade their lifestyle to the current state of modern condo living.

So if you want to have a greener lifestyle not only on your clothing and accessories but also with your future residential place, for sure there are many Condo for sale but always consider Quezon City where the Zinnia Towers is located. Read more information about it at (Photo Source)

Philippine Fashion at SONA 2012

The President’s State of the Nation Address is one of the most anticipated events of the year, not just for political junkies but for fashion lovers as well. Solons and celebrities graced the red carpet in classic barongs, ternos, baro’t sayas, and maria claras—a colorful display of the richness and extravagance of Philippine Fashion.
Accompanied by two friends, actress and political spouse Assunta de Rossi stood out in a beige terno covered in paisley lace. She wore her hair in a simple bun. Congresswoman Lucy Torres-Gomez was a vision of grace and elegance in a pink terno designed by Randy Ortiz. She entered the Batasang Pambansa through the north wing entrance with husband Richard Gomez by her side.

Actress and Cavite Rep. Lani Mercado walked the red carpet in a teal, yellow, and orange Mindanao-inspired gown by Rajo Laurel accompanied by her husband Sen. Bong Revilla. Senator Pia Cayetano attended the event in a grey, 1950s-inspired gown with modern sliced petal sleeves. Her champagne-colored gown was embellished with feathers on layered tulle, and had a 1920s-style hem. Congresswoman Imelda Marcos, who set fashion trends in her conjugal dictatorship heyday, is still elegant in her 80s and was dressed in a blue terno with green beads on the bodice. The President’s sister Kris Aquino was also spotted inside the plenary hall clad in a green, off-shoulder Randy Ortiz gown and accompanied by friend Boy Abunda.

The men may not have as wide a range of sartorial options as their female counterparts, but that did not stop a few from making fashion statements of their own, sometimes literally. Just like last year, President Benigno Aquino III wore a barong by designer Paul Cabral, but this time without a yellow ribbon pinned to it. Bayan Muna representative Teddy Casiño (left) continued his tradition of wearing his sentiments on his sleeve—or in his case, his entire front, as his Edgar San Diego barong was emblazoned with the words “Presyo Ibaba” as a protest against rising prices in the country. Other politicians espousing their advocacies through their outfits include former Akbayan Rep. Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel, whose gown had a “north meets south” concept—a T’nalak butterfly bolero paired with an abel Iloco gown by Joel Acebuche.
Acebuche also created Akbayan Rep. Kaka Bag-ao’s forest-green silk gown, which mirrored her love for the environment with its petal paillettes, gold embellishments, and embossed flowers. Casiño’s fellow Bayan Muna Rep. Neri Colmenares wore a barong from Bacolod designer Renan Ortiz, painted on the front with a call for freedom for political prisoners. Sulu Congresswoman Nur-Ana Sahidulla walked the red carpet in a hijab and an extravagant, blue and purple Muslim gown embellished with Swarovski crystals and multicolored sequins. Beside her, Ifugao Rep. Teddy Baguilat Jr. accentuated his barong with an Ifugao Pungot headdress traditionally worn by upper-class men and a sash made of Ifugao cloth

Miss Selfridge - Flirty British Brand for Philippine Fashion

The internet has been great for Philippine Fashion, given the growing number of local style blogs and easily accessible websites of international retailers and brands. And, as more foreign labels put up their stores in major Asian cities like Manila, fashion retail is perhaps becoming more fun in the Philippines. These things are good enough for a British brand like Miss Selfridge to re-enter the Philippine market, through the help of local retail group Robinsons Specialty Stores, Inc. (RSSI)
“We actually had Miss Selfridge here in the Philippines but we closed it a few years ago,” shares Oliver Solomon, the brand’s international visual merchandising coordinator, during the opening/re-launch day of Miss Selfridge at Greenbelt 5 in Makati City recently. “I think there was nothing wrong then but it was more of the direction of the brand and the business.” While Miss Selfridge was unsuccessful at its first attempt to entice Filipino shoppers, RSSI is now “confident” that the brand will work in the Philippines the second time around.

According to Vanessa Domingo, RSSI’s brand manager for Miss Selfridge, the Philippines is fast becoming an emerging territory when it comes to fashion. “More young females are into technology, with blogs and other media. They’re adapting to things, and they can also see fashion bloggers wearing glamorous outfits.”

Domingo adds that social media provides “faster connection” to consumers and that Miss Selfridge aims to step up the country’s fashion scene by offering more on-trend styles to Filipinos. Solomon explains that every Miss Selfridge store looks into being the destination for “young, feminine, and flirty” clothes. “We want to make sure that we [always go] with a little bit of girlishness and a little bit of sexiness,” he says, adding that the brand’s items are designed in-house to ensure uniqueness.

“Another thing about Miss Selfridge is that we don’t have any basic products,” relates Solomon. “There’s nothing bland about our merchandise. Everything has some embellishments, or details like fringing or pleating or paneling.” To illustrate, the Greenbelt 5 store currently has a line-up of pastel, candy, and neon colors, along with ostentatious animal in “multicolored brights”, floral, and digital prints.

There are rock-inspired pieces, defined by studs, fringing, biker jackets and printed leggings. Dressier and more polished ensembles come in soft pastels and florals while cutout and bodycon dresses and full, tulle skirts are noticeable for nights out around town. Envelope clutches and high-heeled shoes are just some of the latest accessories.

“We are tapping on going out styles,” says Domingo, “but at the same time, we also offer casual and smart formals for young professionals. It’s a diverse range.” Solomon also shares that the brand carries petite-sized clothing, which is apt for Asians with a usually smaller body type than, say, Europeans. Asian girls, as he observes, “love to dress up. They love to feel good about what they’re wearing and it’s a really important part of the business.”

Miss Selfridge first came into fashion in 1966, as a youthful line of British department store Selfridges. Through the years, it has aimed to incorporate pop culture trends into every girl’s wardrobe, having worked with Gossip Girl stylist Eric Damon and supermodels Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. The brand’s girly aesthetic is about “just having fun every day,” says Domingo.
