MYTH Lifestyle – Organika: Hopeless Romantic

Surely you’ve passed by MYTH Lifestyle‘s Greenbelt 5 store before. It’s hard to miss. It is one of the few stores that carries designer clothes in ready-to-wear sizes. In a lot of ways, this store is heaven-sent, especially for fashion-forward individuals who want to support and wear Philippine fashion but don’t have the time to have a design made for a specific occasion. While it is quite special to have a dress custom-made by your favorite designer, not all of us have the luxury of time to go through the process of consultation, fitting and final fitting. Sometimes the idea of buying something off the rack is more appealing, especially when you don’t have to sacrifice design, fit and custom detail. And when it comes to price, well, there is an actual price tag to look at so you wont get shocked after you get your dress. Lets make this clear though that this wont happen if you talk to your designer about price and budget from the start. But I can imagine it can happen to some people.

MYTH Lifestyle invited a few fashion editors and bloggers to view their newest collection called Organika: Hopeless Romantic. The collection was born out of the direction of designer Randy Ortiz to represent a woman’s ethereality and innocence in this fast-changing world. A roster of veteran and celebrated Filipino designers showcased a fresh, inspiring collection that falls under this theme.
