Now this is evening glam.

There's something so inherently decadent about swathing yourself in velvet come nighttime. It's almost conspiratory, as if you're cloaked in simultaneous excess and mystery: It's plush yet wearable, opulent yet subtle. Cebu-based designer Mike Yapching's collection for Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival is out to convince you that there's simply no other fabric suitable for your next grand occasion!

Though not done in the aforementioned velvet, another dress in particular also happened to catch our eye. There's a ton of things about it we love—the trailing cluster of buttons, that high slit, the ultra-flattering tie-waist detail—but most of all, it's the showering of shimmer.

The rest of Mike's latest line follows suit, strutting one surprisingly understated, light-reflecting look after the other. Check out the runway show below!
