Liz Uy for Rags2Riches ARTEsenal Luxe

I've always been fascinated with the collections of Rags2Riches. This renowned brand isn't only famous for their beautiful and fashionable works, but also for their advocacy (which I really admire) of helping the less privileged communities in the Philippines. So when I got invited to the launch of Rags2Riches' Fall/Holiday 2013 Collection, I said yes in a heartbeat! I knew I can't afford to miss it! ♥



This season, Rags2Riches collaborates with their latest Style Advocate, one of the country's most influential fashion icons, and my girl crush, Liz Uy.


The collection of Liz Uy for Rags2Riches ARTEsenal Luxe makes a bold statement that glamour can be good for the world, and that style can have soul and substance. Each piece in this collection illustrates the tactile richness of different handmade textures, as well as the artful interpretations of the lives and values of the artisans. Mind you, everything they produce focuses on eco-ethical fashion and home accessories out of recycled scrap cloth, organic materials and indigenous fabrics. 



The launch was held at the Ayala Museum last October 17. The venue was packed with stylish people; everybody was excited to get a glimpse of Rags2Riches' latest collection.

Here's a preview of Liz Uy for Rags2Riches ARTEsenal Luxe:

What makes Rags2Riches bags extra special from others in the retail industry? It's none other than the artisans who strive hard to weave better futures for their families and communities where these skilled individuals hail from.



Of course, I didn't miss the chance to have a photo op with my girl crush! Congratulations, Liz Uy, for this brilliant collaboration with Rags2Riches! :)
