closing for business: fibre

just got this text! "hi fashion fiends and friends—fabulous fibre is unfortunately closing its doors. everything must go. here's your last chance for YDG couture at unbelievable prices—up to 70% off! come pay final respects until january 31 only at 2/f doña consolacion building, 135 jupiter st., makati. thanks for all your support! :-)" after one and a half years, it's sad to see that fibre didn't do as well as expected. it was the only place where you could buy off-the-rack, honest-to-goodness, one-of-a-kind designer wear from members of the young designers guild—louis claparols, yvonne quisumbing-romulo, james reyes, ivarluski aseron, joey samson, ciara marasigan, and so many others. well, we did hear a rumor that fibre will be one of the shops opening at the "filipino zone" at greenbelt 5, which is set to launch in october. or maybe the designers themselves will open their own ready-to-wear boutiques. if that is so, then we can't wait!
