Fashion Weekend Davao 2017 sizzles Menswear with Tribal Flair

As teased during the launching forum, Fashion Weekend Davao’s culminating fashion show Cruise 17| 18 sashayed virilely stylish collections of men’s wear for dapper yuppies on this year’s 4-ply climax show, Abreeza activity center, August 6.

Follow through the captions for the CLOSER’S STYLE REVIEW : This Kadayawan tribe inspired DODJIE BATU menswear collection was personally the show’s spotlight.

Two parts were dedicated to the opportune celebration of Kadayawan 2017. Davao Fashion Design Council members paraded their garb creations inspired by the 11 Kadayawan tribes of Davao and their garment interpretations of the globally awarded furniture masterpieces of Davao jewelry and furniture designer, Ann Tiukinhoy Pamintuan.



BAMBA LIMON CRUISE 17 I 18 COLLECTION: The usual formal shirts with pleasing tints and tribal patterns. Deals smooth closing ahead when you’re wearing these.


ARMY UTILITARIANISM by WINDELL MIRA:  Who would have thought that there’s a glamorous robustness appeal from the coalescence of tribal patterns and army prints in one wear?! Impressive mix!



DODJIE BATU CRUISE 17I18 COLLECTION: Paisley details, rear fashion twists and collar wing twitches. My favorite collection amongst.



Shirt jack Barong with a tailcoat length like that of a Tuxedo. I covet wearing Barongs with the modern styles especially the shirt jack type. Had at least 3 of such style in my closet for work closing fat accounts. Though, personally ain’t too convinced yet with the twitches on the collar wings, seeing Batu’s fad twist on the rear of this piece somehow is a grabber of excitement and fascination to one of these days to close more deals donned with this.
