The New Faces of Philippine Fashion: Get to Know Them

The New Faces of Philippine Fashion

Read Time: 2 minutes


Eighteen faces, brand new eyes

Flipping through local fashion magazines today doesn’t feel the same as it did five, ten years ago. Or, since shifts in the industry have turned the tides in the digital direction, consider the difference between scrolling through digital editorials now and thumbing through decade-old glossies. 


The difference lies not only in the platform. The difference has a face, or an army of fresh new faces.

The world is at a crossroads. By-the-book definitions of beauty are facing a major overhaul, with all from the fashion giants to the trend-driven retailers recognizing the appeal of the atypical, awarding gold stars to the bearers of chipped brows, shaven heads, prismatic manes. This magnetism has trickled over to our side of the world, pushing a wave of palate-cleansing models to the forefront of the fashion scene.


These are the new faces of Philippine fashion.
