For a fashionista, it is always a breeze to find the most exciting and trendy pieces in a nearby shopping destination.

This year, the Davao City-based Ayala mall brings everything which the international fashion authorities have identified as the latest trends. These include the sparkle, fringe, silk and satin, tie-dye, tight pleats, neon, Bermuda shorts and waterproof outerwear. Of course, the mall’s tenants also have different pieces of the Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year - living coral.

Together with the Davao Fashion Design Council (DFDC), Abreeza Mall brought on the runway the Outline Fashion Forecast 2019 recently.

The show has proven once again the world-class creativity and ingenuity of Davao’s homegrown designers. Thus, DFDC’s outgoing president, Aztec Barba, was recognized during the event for leading the group that has been championing the indigenous culture. It was then announced that Dodjie Batu is taking over in leading the group to further heights in their journey. Congratulations to you both! And thank you as well for serving the fashion industry unselfishly!
