Joining Shaira's coveted pieces are a mix of pre-loved "clothes, shoes, and accessories" straight from the closets of stylists, photographers, set designers, art directors, makeup artists, and fashion writers, making it the ultimate shopping destination for every stylish cool girl next week.
Not to mention with this eclectic mix of sellers you can definitely expect to sniff out designer bargains for your next OOTD. Who knows, you might finally find the perfect piece to recreate your fave celeb's look, a la Shaira channelling Julia Barretto's style. All this for prices as low as P25!
"I personally don't have a lot of designer brands, but other sellers, especially stylists Rabbit Hole Creatives, have lots of vintage designer clothes that they just used for shoots!" Shaira tells Preview. "Last year, they had Prada, Fendi, Hermes, GF Ferre, and more! The other sellers are celebrity stylists, so lots of the clothes were probably used just once for a show or a shoot - both high street and designer brands." She also promises for there to be quite the selection for men as well.
Now if you're not adept in the ukay-ukay game a.k.a. mustering up an endless amount of patience and energy to rummage through mounds of clothes, you may want to take advice from the pro herself, here.
