OUTFiT | The Stylish Streets of Manila

My usual weekend errand turned into something exciting when I saw these three young friends, chit chatting on the road, on my way to the grocery store. Their practical yet simple sense of style caught my eye. I ended up getting to know them a little and learned about their various definition of "fashion" and how they incorporate it with their kind of lifestyle. Listening to these kids suddenly inspired me to go on a hunt for Manila's everyday fashionista.

When "Everyday is a fashion show and the world is your runway", artistry is endless!  It was a pretty exciting project in which I am delighted to share with you all!

What is your sense of style?

What is your sense of style?

- "I can't say I have a particular sense of style because it differs, depending on my mood. Name it and I can go boyish, basic, girly even cartoonish! I meant, cosplay. Haha!"
