Fit & Fab

A fashion show for the girl on the go.
Fit & Fab A fashion show for the girl on the go.

Following the likes of Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Yohji Yamamoto, the who's who of Philippine fashion have teamed up with big name active wear brands to design collections of chic and sporty pieces. In a move that fits right into the current fitness craze, this collaboration has certainly made fashion more accessible, reminding everyone that fashion doesn't just belong on the runways. Fashion most definitely can take center stage in everyday life.


As part of the Inquirer Lifestyle Fitness.Fashion series of shows geared towards promoting Philippine fashion, the first installment was held last July 28 at The Peninsula Manila. The twelve participating designers let their models loose on a tartan track-inspired runway. A few fitness-conscious icons like swimmer Akiko Thompson, gym-buff Ruby Gan, marathon running sisters Leica and Amanda Carpo, and squash enthusiast Tweetie Gonzales modeled for the show.


From the preppy golf sets of Anthony Nocom and Nike Golf; Ivarluski Aseron's's chic lilac hoodies and skinny jogging pants for Puma; and Rajo Laurel's glammed up bikinis, paired with safari-style trousers and rubber boots, for Aigle & Oxbow, there was something to make every desperate housewife and gossip girl get off their seats, hit the gym and take up a sport. Who knew you could still look so stylish and sexy while you sweat it out?
