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.

Also present were Cebu designers Arcy Gayatin, Jun Escario, Edwin Ao, Oj Hofer and Philip Rodriguez.

The young guns and millennial designers also showcased their own renditions. Present were Daryl Maat, Paolo Miguel Jaofar, Patrick Lazol, Thian Rodriguez, Michael Leyva, Joseph Bagasao, KC Pusing, Vania Romoff, Wilbur Lang, Rei Escario, Andrea Lopa, Riza Bulawan, Joel Escober, Tipay Caintic, Caroline Alaba, and Bon Hansen.

Designers picked professional models and personalities—even clients—as muses and to exhibit their creations.

Celebrities Julie Ann San Jose and Benjamin Alves were named Converse Female and Male All Star winners while Rhett Eala and young designer Michael Leyva were given special prizes courtesy of Ideal Vision.
