The designing sisters do wonders with denim.
Designer & Muse: Religioso The designing sisters do wonders with denim.

“Denim is the new White,” is the bold statement that clothing brand, Religioso, made at the recent fashion event, Privé. The duo behind the brand, Choc Religioso-Dayrit and Yvette Religioso-Ilagan, along with their entire creative force, celebrated their fourth year anniversary. And what better way to celebrate such milestone than launching a stunning new collection.

Religioso unveiled a denim line that's equal parts classic, cutting edge and superior in quality. Ten individuals whose style, personality, ingenuity and passion for life reflect the brand's philosophies showcased the new collection.

The pieces were worn by Grace Tagle-Arigo, Alexandra Rocha, Cheryl Tiu, AC Ocampo, Abby Cruz, Ingrid Chua-Go, Luanne Dy, Gigi Grande, Agot Isidro and Manu Sandejas.

The pieces have that signature Religioso flair for applying intricate design elements like draping, asymmetric silhouettes, and appliqué work on wearable retail pieces. Since its birth four years ago, Religioso is still about style, exclusivity and excellent workmanship.

The collection will be available this month in Religioso, Greenbelt 5.
