GVN the Label

GVN, formerly Giovanne the Label, was founded by sisters Keisha and Kaitlin Lao who are both from Ateneo de Manila University. "We actually get our inspiration from the bags we see while walking around the mall, in the Ateneo campus, on Instagram, Facebook, or random ideas that float around our heads," they share in an old interview with Candy. The brand carries classic pieces from footwear to bags.
