Remember when bandage dresses were all the rage back in 2008 courtesy of international brand Hervé Léger? We didn't have a store here then in the country but that did not stop the Filipina fashionistas from sporting the iconic dress. Celebrities, A-listers, stylistas, and even Barbie were seen flaunting them, and everyone else wanted to get their hands on them. Previously called the “bender dress,” the relaunched “bandage dress” created so much noise that it peaked for consecutive years just because women couldn’t seem to get enough. It's a great piece to flaunt your svelte silhouette and the ladies felt ultra-sexy in it.

Molding and enhancing one too many bodies, the dress has carried the brand into becoming a high-end go-to store for the powerful and modern women. (Ed’s Note: We even spotted Heart Evangelista on the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine’s March 2014 issue wearing a daring blue Hervé one-piece!) So imagine our joy when we learned that the brand responsible for pioneering the striking dress has made its way to our tropical shores! Yup! You heard that right, the Hervé Léger boutique is now open at Shangri-la Plaza’s East Wing and it is their first and only store in Asia! With all the fierce and fab Filipinas out there, we’re not surprised with their decision to make Manila their first home in the continent. This is your chance to finally get a piece of the pie that is currently exclusive to us on this part of the wold so be sure to check them out.
Hervé Léger is now open at Level 1, Atrium, East Wing Shangri-la Plaza, EDSA corner Shaw Blvd. Mandaluyong.
