That Tartan track inspired runway came back for another round of designer .

For the second installment of Inquirer Lifestyle Fitness.Fashion series geared towards promoting Philippine fashion , Inquirer teamed up with Samsung and Waterfront and trooped down South-way, way down South to the city of Cebu.

Cebuano designers Jun Escario, Arcy Gayatin, Oj Hofer, Cary Santiago, Protacio Empaces, Philip Rodriguez, Edwin Ao, and Lord Maturan were joined by a few of Manila's fashionable names-Louis Claparols, Joey Samson, Lulu Tan Gan, Rhett Eala, James Reyes, Randy Ortiz, and Anthony Nocom.
These heavyweights once again jolted their creativity by partnering with eight big-name brands to bring forth the best of activewear, with some of Cebu's high society taking to the catwalk for the show. Cebu City Vice Mayor Mike Rama and socialite Amparito Lhuillier were just a few of the name-dropables that strutted their stuff.

This brand new set of collaborations resulted in contrasting, distinctive takes on activewear. Spotted were body-skimming, cut-out dresses and tops in rich velour by Cary for Folded & Hung, and loose wide-leg Hakama-inspired pants by Oj in his collaboration with cult flipflop label Havaianas. Philip's pieces had a decidedly womanly feel, what with the ruffles and tiers, while Joey executed his androgynous POV masterfully. Lord stimulated the visual sense with bright neon colors for You magazine and Penshoppe, while James, Randy and Jun went for a strictly black-white-gray minimalist palette for You magazine, Folded & Hung and Speedo respectively.

Enough talk. Go check out the fashion for yourselves.
