ANNALIE EDDAY'S POST:

MARLENE PO - "Marian Pastor Roces PLEASE WRITE A LETTER TO THE EDITOR! Or post something on FB. I deeply regret having introduced Len to the Tboli weavers and embroiderers."
"Marian Pastor Roces ME TOO I AM VERY ANGRY. Do please write. Also about unfair trade and how indigenous designs have been appropriated but not properly acknowledged and compensated."
MARIAN PASTOR ROCES - "Marlene Po I am very angry. But I will write something."
SARA JANE TODI CAYUGAN - "It's Filip+Ina collection Ate AnnalieEdday, Kung kami nabastosan sa Kegal pairing it with jeans how much more this one � this is too much. �"
TESSA CUTE CONSTANTINO - "Inappropriate. Insensitive. Disrespectful. I feel sorry for our tribe. Will take necessary action about this, gang. ☹️"
ALICE SUANA LANGE - "That is very extreme BAD to the superlative. A degrading scene and insult to us.�"
ARJHO CARINO TURNER - "Agree Mayor Tessa Kyut Constantino. I just woke to see this...what are they thinking when they put all this together? We have not seen IP folks wearing their traditional wear this way, they covered up their body...the total opposite of "sexualizing" the blouse paired with bikini. It does not look sexy at all...so horrible."
ECARG GY - "Omg, maam Marlene Po, sobra na talaga. The blouse looks familiar to me."
MARLENE PO - "Ecarg Gy oo sure ako kilala mo. Walang compensation ang designs nila."
APOY EJ JACINTO - "Please push po natin ang complain. Mga walang paggalang sa kultura ay dapat managot!"
Despite our struggles for CULTURAL PRESERVATION, we as indigenous people support CULTURAL EVOLUTION but not ever any form of CULTURAL PROSTITUTION.
MULTIPLE CHOICE - Luis Espiritu jr. (The Philippine Star) - April 8, 2018 - 12:00am
Fashion is sizzling haute as the scorching temperature escalates. Style is sailing the high seas with on-the-radar oceanic hues that are set to beat the heat.
Bringing statement style in the blue is Filip+Inna, a homegrown brand that is currently making a name in the international scene and is relevantly promoting Pinoy identity into retail fashion.
Filip+Inna’s capsule collection of blues is a narration of patriotic impressions of fashion in the now. It is a style narrative that displays artisanal work and heritage fused into the contemporary wardrobe. The brand’s distinct creations meticulously made by hand present a look of authenticity and modern eccentricity in refinement. A variety of tribal patterns and iterations displays masterful handiwork and presents contemporary graphic appeal. True blues come in a variety of ultra-chic shades and summer-ready fabrications such as denims, cotton and linen.
Made-by-hand fashion unfolds in a range of wardrobe ideas. A sea of endless blue in casual to formal pieces is seen in dresses, pants, skirts, tops, jackets, coats and accessories that can be practically mixed and matched.
These meticulously made works of art showcase the importance of handicraft as they celebrate couture-like craftsmanship, outstanding workmanship reflective of culture and tradition.
Filip+Inna is rethinking wardrobe essentials into forward-looking fashion that doesn’t go over the top. In limited edition or one-of-a-kind pieces, these summer blues are visionary references of local retail. They are also a noteworthy style declaration of fashion in context.
(From April 10 to May 31, Filip+Inna will have a pop up at the second floor of the newly opened wing of Power Plant Mall in Rockwell, Makati City.)
