SOMA Stores: Emerging Brands
Spotted SOMA Stores a few days ago with Patrick at the Green Sun hotel along Pasong Tamo Extension, Makati City.
SOMA Stores is located on the first floor of Green Sun hotel. What’s there to see? The SOMA Stores is a pop-up collective featuring the fashion brands of young Filipino designers who had started business fresh from or still in school.
Put on a spin to your everyday wear edgy designer pieces from the SOMA Stores.
Here are some of the amazing brands I’ve captured at the SOMA Stores.
2. ROISINE by Rosenthal Tee
3. Tipay Caintic
Care for some made-to-order knitwear?
4. Proud Race
5. Undo Clothing
Lots of #denim.
7. S/S Supply Goods
8. Bangggo Niu
I got giddy seeing the Je Tuex Te Voir collection of Banggo Niu during the Manila Fashion Fest at the SOMA Stores.
Too bad I missed taking a photo of another brand, Salad Day they have really cute and quirky pieces that I would love to add to my pile. There are a few more great brands placed at the SOMA Stores.
I was able to talk to Anne, one of SOMA Stores rep and asked about the collective pop-up store. Apparently, rental to the SOMA Stores is free. They're just on a commission basis.
I love the fact that there is a place like this for Filipino designers. It’s a great venue for burgeoning brands and renowned labels in the industry. It encourages appreciation and growth for local retail, arts, and design entrepreneurs.
Thanks to SOMA Stores there is more exposure for young Filipino designers (which I hope to be part of, yes pleaseee!).
Patrick and I enjoyed looking through the racks filled with awesome designs by the brands of different Filipino designers. We both felt so inspired! Be inspired too! Check the store out if you’ll be going to the area or if you live near the place.
