What happens when two chronic shoppers decide that they want to travel to Paris regularly? They make it their business to do so.
It all started when Kat Lim came back from a Paris trip and told her friend Christine Dychiao, "We have to think of a reason to travel to Paris regularly, like a real reason and not just for leisure." Tin’s answer? "That's easy, we should do buying trips!" Currently living any fashion girl’s dream, they decided that there is a way to travel more, shop more, and be productive all while feeding their wanderlust. Rooted in their shared passion and natural inclination to shopping online, the two turned the dream into an opportunity to bring the brands they love to Manila. As luck would have it, two more friends, Pat Ramos and Emily Yap, were also interested and the four launched Tilda together.

If you’re on the lookout for unique pieces by some of the most sought-after-but-hard-to-come-by labels (here in the Philippines, at least), then we suggest you head to shoptilda.com. “We choose items based on what we personally love, that we feel our customers would appreciate as well,” Tin shares. Their shopping philosophy? Thoughtful choices, quality fabrics, and materials that can last at least a decade.

They decided to name the brand after Tilda Swinton who they felt summed up their style aspirations: functional fashion that’s effortlessly chic. If you’re a busy woman balancing life between work and family but still make time for date night or bonding with friends all in the same day, then you’re probably a Tilda woman.
