Once upon a style, Fashion and fairytale meet at the Shang

MANILA, Philippines – Just like magic, the Christmas season is upon us once again. And like a hypnotic spell slowly taking effect, the metro is beginning to don a more festive garb, punctuated by running lights and yuletide ornamentations much to everyone’s delight. With the changing of the season, the fashion scene at Shangri-La Plaza transitions into a celebratory mood with splashes of red, bold prints, fur accents, lace inflections, and a sweet deluge of intricate but soft embroidery.

The Shang — the country’s premier lifestyle destination — opens the holiday festivities on a mystical note with another “Shang Style Spectrum” fashion show at the Grand Atrium held November 12. The show, aptly titled “Magical Fashion Moments,” rode on the enchanting vibe of the season by reimagining our beloved characters such as Mulan, Tinkerbell, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood, and Queen Elsa in contemporary print-on-print iterations, tailored coats, lightweight cardigans, vibrant scarves, delicate florals, and bold jewelry from Shang’s impressive roster of world-class brands.

Here’s a peek at the different magical fashion moments that transpired inside the whimsical world of Shangri-La Plaza.

Scarlet adventures
