This time last year, one of the pioneer designers of Manila Fashion Festival, Cheetah Rivera, took inspiration from her fascination with birds and created a swallow-printed collection. For Fall/Winter 2016, she decided to take us to outerspace via a composite of constellations translated into a collection called Andromeda. Opening her futuristic troop were black, star-printed mini dresses that set the tone and solidified her stand as a designer who knows her prints. Followed up by flares, galaxy prints that twinkled on boxy shirts and skirts, and a whole lot of sparkle via sequins on strappy dresses and vests.
Launch the gallery to see the full collection.
