Its good to know that PH is not Third World Country anymore when it comes to imported fashion brands coming to Manila one after another. The retail fashion cult favorite Canadian brand Joe Fresh recently opens at Edsa Shangri-la Plaza on May 28, 2016, brought to you by the SSI Stores Specialists, Inc., a division of SSI Group, Inc..
Celebrities, Joe Fresh execs, and fashion bloggers attended the opening of Joe Fresh flagship store in Manila. with DJ David Callum provided music on the background.
I took pictures of DJ David Callum and some cute celebrities. After taking snapshots of the womens apparel, childrens wear and mens wear, I decided to shop, given that we had our budget for the day. The jogger pants at the 2nd floor are cute and comfy, too bad though that they dont have my (small) size.
I went up and down to shop for anything that would caught my fancy, until I saw a mens jacket at the second floor. I asked for an xs size, but they only have "small" at the rack. So I looked for some dressy shirt, after what it seemed like an eternity, I got myself 2 tops and one casual dress. I got 3 for the price of that one jacket. Ill be back next week wishing that mens jacket has my size na.
