Local Brands You Should Meet Now At The “Shop & Lounge” Spectrum Fair
The country’s first and only premium “Shop and Lounge” experience is happening this weekend! Social icons, lifestyle connoisseurs and avid shopping fair goers got a treat of a unique indoor-outdoor encounter with emerging local brands at Spectrum Fair Manila.
First ever indoor/outdoor fair in Manila
Very home-y, as I’d describe it. Over the weekend, guests were charmed by the whimsical, fun and relaxing ambiance created by a mix of the spirit and energy of the outdoors with the warmth and comfort of the indoors. At the bazaar were the country’s freshest lifestyle brands with emerging brands from the food category. Yum! Here are local brands I discovered over the weekend:
Grace Home Manila
Whiff Fine Fragrances
A favorite scent from Whiff is Nectarine Pearl. It smells so fresh plus they have travel sized bottles perfect for ladies on the go!
Snackbox Brownie Crunch
The brownie bites are so good, I wouldn’t be surprised if customers would pick it up by the dozen!
With the brains behind Spectrum Fair Manila, Alyssa Arellano
Spectrum Fair Manila’s brainchild of mother-daughter tandem, Pia and Alyssa Arellano, put together a clever and immersive showcase of their favorite elements from all the fairs they went to both here and abroad.
Bucketfeet and Petite Jolie
Simara by Ia Golfo
Beautiful tutu skirts, anyone? These are made by local designer Ia Golfo who also happens to be my good friend from college. Go, Ia!
Yuki Tansengco and Nicole Ty in Simara
At the bazaar, you could also register at Raja Tours and make your dream vacation come true! Contiki tour – I am coming!!! :)
Fatherly bonding with Jason Magbanua
Aside from the very welcoming owners of each booth, Spectrum Fair Manila was also graced by Manila’s top influencers and personalities. I found Jason taking his son around for some food and shopping!
With Arisse De Santos
Spectrum Fair Manila successfully curated brands that showcase Filipino homegrown talent with their exotic, elegant and exquisite artisanal creations. From great lifestyle finds at a bargain price, to sensational bites – Spectrum is a holistic experience that will keep your senses busy for the whole day.
Boqueria Lifestyle Market
Love the ambiance and the whole positive vibe – we need more fairs like Spectrum! For more information and get updates on the NEXT fair, like Spectrum Fair Manila on Facebook and follow them on Instagram via @spectrumfairmanila.
