Between BAYO‘s credibility as a local fashion brand for the discriminating Pinay, and Len Cabili’s commitment to celebrating traditional weave (and weavers!) through beautifully-crafted and impeccably designed clothes, what one can only expect is the wonder that fashion interwoven with nationalism. Pinoy pride has never looked this good, really.
What I like about this is that it’s not just any other campaign or print material that targets on the Filipina because this one is a deep collaboration with a designer who used materials and employed Filipinos to create these pieces.
Fashionalism is nothing short of fantastic. With a common rootedness in nation, Len Cabili and BAYO are coming together with a limited edition FILIP + INNA for BAYO fashion line, that can only speak of Fashionalism like no other. Each of the eight pieces in this collection features hand-embroidery by T-boli women from Lake Sebu in Mindanao, which can only set the bar higher for ready-to-wear fashion. No fashion collaboration has ever dared do what FILIP + INNA for BAYO seeks to achieve. No fashion collaboration can stand for nationalism like FILIP + INNA for BAYO.
And with intricately crafted and superbly designed clothes, Fashionalism has never looked this good. And by good, I think it also has a potential to be global with it’s very unique and classy designs. The items immediately sold out in the Bayo store in Glorietta during the launch.
