There is no stopping American brand Forever 21 and SM Retail Group from branching out all over the Philippines. They just opened their fifth store today in SM Mall of Asia. Their other branches can be found in SM Makati, SM North EDSA, SM Cebu and of course, SM Megamall.
After loads of savory and sweet treats, we were all ushered to witness a fashion show featuring the latest pieces Forever 21 has to offer, and after that, the shopping party began! The 2000 square meter store was filled with Manila's fashionable shopping to their heart's desire.
We love how everyone dressed up for the event,. We spotted host for the night and MYX VJ Joyce Pring wearing a metallic jacket that we all lusted over paired with cut-offs and wedge pumps.
Brand Ambassador Lissa Kahayon exuded a sweet '50s vibe in her bright pink eyelet dress cinched with a belt. We also saw Danah Gutierrez wearing a draped orange top paired with gold accessories.
Andi Manzano opted for a simple shopping outfit of a neon knit top paired with shorts and Aztec-print ballet flats. Comfort in flats is key when standing in the queue for the cashier!
Our very own Pauline Suaco-Juan, who was the Stunner of the Night, was in a pleated animal print dress finished with bright yellow tassel earrings, while Daryl Chang, one of the night's best dressed, wore prints on prints paired with her multi-colored wedge sneakers.
Fashion bloggers were also in full force for the opening. We saw Tracy Ayson in an all-white ensemble along with Kaye Awatin who was in a monochromatic outfit complete with cape, and also Dani Barretto who paired her stripes with bright trousers.
