The recently concluded Philippine Fashion Week was more than just about clothes, with Rusty Lopez providing the shoes for 22 designers this season. Enrico Carado, Happy Andrada, Jaki Penalosa, Kenneth Chua, Noel Crisostomo, M Barreto, and Joel Escober were just some of the participants given shoes to complete their collection exhibit.
Lito Lopez, president, of Rusty Lopez, shares: “We understand how difficult it is to make a name in the fashion industry, having undergone the same process which started some 33 years ago. Rusty Lopez, and Centropelle for that matter, went through the same birthing pains that our young designers are now experiencing. Hopefully, with support from established brands like ours, we can help this talented and creative group of people and together, bring attention to the local fashion industry.”
It’s great to know that we have local brands helping local designers. For the show, most of them used platform skyscrapers, but they do have equally show-stopping flats as well. Here are my top picks:
