Here's to supporting local...


Top: Herman & Co. / Shorts: Apartment 8 / Earrings: Seek The Uniq

Lately, I've been gravitating more towards local brands over fast fashion -- I guess it's the appeal of exclusivity, of owning something a few (will) only have. One such brand and a new discovery of mine is Herman & Co., a clothing line which makes use of gorgeous, indigenous fabrics such as Yakan and Batik from Mindanao. The top I'm wearing in this photo set has a playful combination of both said fabrics and I just really adore the print and the colors. It might 'sound' cheesy but wearing locally-made pieces like this make me feel truly "Filipino" somehow.

Cheers to brands and consumers celebrating and acknowledging Filipino craftsmanship. Here's to supporting local!
