Designers present their take on #OOTD: individualistic, creative, fashionable
For its 2017 edition, Inquirer Lifestyle and Lookbook’s Face-Off took on the #OOTD millennial phenomenon, and brought the country’s veteran and young designers together in one exciting—and Instagrammable—show.
Held at Shangri-La East Wing last March 2, 2017, the fashion show also featured the iconic Chuck Taylors and Converse’ new designs to match each outfit. Statement and practical daily leather goods courtesy of Fossil were also seen during the show.
