  1. button down shirt

this shirt caught my eye whilst i was shopping in one of the very huge malls in the Philippines, on a recent trip there. i must say i was impressed with the fashion there, very inspiring. very eclectic and the designers (at least the ones that i came across) weren't afraid of colour!! i loved it!

OMG really? thats y it looks like Barong! Our national suit for men! :D NICE!

yeh i got it there. i was left scratching my head hoping i was the one that designed it! i've seen very interesting takes on Barong, i'm planning to head back there and get the same fabrics they use for it that i could use on my designs. so exciting! :-)

Paolo Castro
thanks for the links. wow, they do look like the Barong!! i'm sure the people at Valentino would've indicated at some point that they got inspired by it. it's a beautiful design and a beautiful fabric. definitely something to be extremely proud of!
