Proudly Filipino shoe label Annie & Lori is welcoming the new year with a bang! The homegrown brand, helmed by Faith Mijares, has joined the list of emerging designers featured in the January 2020 Fashion and Film issue of British Vogue.
Annie & Lori is the only Philippine name in the magazine’s Designer Profile section, which pays tribute to up-and-coming fashion brands.
Known for its minimalist leather footwear, Vogue UK highlights how Annie & Lori also takes inspiration from our peninsula's rich culture and heritage. Spotlit is the brand’s modern take on the traditional bakya and mules spun from unique indigenous textiles.
“We were extremely excited when British Vogue contacted us a couple of months ago to say they would like to feature Annie & Lori,” said Faith. “It’s a dream come true and this will definitely inspire us to continue creating more beautiful sandals for the Filipina and for more women in other parts of the world.”
Now, for a refresher: Annie & Lori’s sleek pieces have been worn by the famous likes of Kelsey Merritt and Catriona Gray, among many others. Faith was also among the five local Women in Fashion highlighted by Preview in March 2019.
