Local Brands You Should Meet Now At The “Shop & Lounge” Spectrum Fair

Spectrum Fair Manila

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.

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

Spectrum Fair Manila Whiff

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!
