MANILA, Philippines - When you think of Philippine fashion, what usually comes to mind is a variety of gowns: for weddings, debuts, and for the Star Magic Ball. But while there is little difference in talent, fashion industries abroad are much larger because of one crucial ingredient: ready-to-wear.

 

Don’t get me wrong. There are RTW designers here — some pretty good ones, I might add. But there are just not a lot that you see regular people wear. Online retailer Miz+Moxie aims to change that. Online shopping isn’t new, even for Manila, but what differentiates this label is a desire to put young, local fashion into daily wardrobe rotation. It’s pretty accessible, too, logistics and price-wise. What’s most exciting about it is that they’re doing collaborations with new designers to bring something different with a local flavor.

With the traffic only getting worse and the Christmas shopping season approaching, it’s only smart to save on gas and effort and get some new digs with just a few clicks. Hit two birds with one stone and #supportlocal while you’re at it.
