And we all should be, too! Yes we should start Backing Asian Designers!
And this is just a handful! There's a lot of very talented fashion designers than there is fashionable people here in the Philippines you know.
Shopthemag.com, the world's first luxury retail website dedicated entirely to showcase top fashion names in Asia, recently launched the B.A.D. campaign.
The B.A.D. or Backing Asian Designers campaign is aimed to bring new awareness to the growing list of premium designers in Asia and the site's unique proposition of being the world's only retail site dedicated to top names in Asian fashion.
The B.A.D. campaign kicks off with a series of exclusive interviews with 10 industry insiders who are part of the Asian fashion industry support system - from a celebrated photographer duo, to one of Asia's most respected fashion directors, to the founder of one of Asia's most successful sites. Fashion insider interviews will be uploaded twice weekly at Shopthemag.com's BLOG. In addition, a picture collation entitled I'm B.A.D. will be uploaded at Shopthemag.com's Facebook PAGE where real people will be shown wearing a piece or two (or more!) items of clothing and/or accessories from their favorite Asian designers! One outfit will be uploaded and highlighted on a daily basis.
In conjunction to this, Shopthemag will run their first time ever $1000 wardrobe giveaway with top Australian blog, karencheng.com, aimed at giving online shoppers the chance to back Asian designers by literally putting the clothes and accessories on their hands and in their closets.

Now Shopthemag.com showcases designs from Japan, Singapore, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Hong Kong and none from the Philippines so far. That's why I'm taking this opportunity to extend a shout out to these Filipino designers who are creating such an impact on both the local and international fashion scenes...
