Twinky The new superb shoe store opens in Glorietta 5.

It's great to see how burgeoning local designers are popping all over town. It gives hope to the fashion industry in this era of financial crisis and shows all the more that Filipino talent has a place in the world stage. The latest to hit Style Bible's radar is Twinky, a footwear line that combines trends, comfort and affordability all together.

Twinkle Samson, who hails from the OTTO shoe clan is the genius behind the shoe store, has a vision of revolutionizing the shoe industry. She says, “Twinky ought to be different in the Philippine shoe retail industry. We want to see women with different personalities proudly wearing Twinky footwear, able to express their individualism through their shoes.”

While it still has a way to go before it sits at par with the Choos and Rossis of the world, the designs are fun and trendy, not to mention pocket-friendly, enough to satiate those spur of the moment shoe cravings. Apart from an interesting mix of flats, sandals, heels, wedges and boots, they also carry bags and accessories that are just as easy on the budget.

Watch out for the opening of Twinky at Glorietta 5 this March.
