PhFW: the ramp

philippine fashion week opened last night with the ramp, a section of crossings department store that features different brands of trendy women's wear. one of those brands is their own house brand, which is the ramp—which is what they showed, i presume. this week's collections are all supposed to be for holiday 2012, but knowing this market—filipina fashionistas—we can't wait till october to wear the clothes! some of the pieces shown last night are actually in stores now, with more being delivered in the coming weeks. some trends spotted on the runway (and no need to put on your glasses, the photos are really malabo!!):

a lot of metallics:

peplum for day, peplum for night:

peplum top + metallic shorts + sheer black maxi skirt = eveningwear - sheer skirt = late night!

big girl and little girl matching paisley ensembles—cute!

let's get animal! zebra prints and feathers galore:

there were men too—but i want his trous!

finally, the finale: graphic black-and-white dresses with metal toe-cap heels:
