Blossoming brand Guerra Manila held a private sale last December 13, 2014 at The Saint Francis Shangri-La Place. With Manila’s best and brightest set to attend and have first dibs on the exciting new collection, Guerra is looking at a very profitable evening.
Part of the proceeds will be donated to GawadKalinga as Guerra aims to reach out and touch the land it will always be home to.
Rooted locally and admired globally, every single piece in Guerra’s line is a proud product of the Filipino mind and spirit. A homonym of the Tagalog word for war, ‘Guerra’, faces the beautiful battle of influences daily. From the traditional designs and traditions of the Philippines to standards and techniques learned and mastered around the world, every bag becomes a child of this harmonious merging of creative armies, a seamless marriage between culture and world-class standards.
Led by Designer Carla Sta. Cruz, the group of fashion world outcasts that comprise Guerra Manila are committed to not only creating quality products, but also to attract eyes the world over towards Filipino skill, ingenuity, creativity and heart.
"Designing, creating something beautiful from scratch, it's always been a passion of mine. I've been blessed to be able to do what I love and by giving back to a charity like GawadKalinga, we're hoping to use our gifts in order to help someone in the future do what they love as well. That would be the most beautiful thing we can create", Sta. Cruz shares.
All that will be in display on December 13th as Guerra Manila hosts their private sale; an opportunity to purchase a unique piece of fashion that’s not only close to home, but also aims to help build homes that will shelter new generations of Filipinos rooted locally and admired globally.
