Bonne Bouche: A slice of elegance
MANILA, Philippines - It's September — known around the world as fashion month; the month when Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2013 jumpstarts in New York, quickly followed by London, Paris, Milan and, soon, by other key fashion cities around the world.
The month has seen fashion events in Manila left and right, and the local fashion scene isn't about to slow down.
We celebrate fashion month here at RAPPLER with a week of fashion designer features — from clothing, to jewelry, to bag and shoe designers; from indigenous fabric to fashion that reflects our country's colorful culture.
Meet some of the fashion designers who do our country proud.
It is a French term that means "an elegant treat," and the words "elegant" and "treat" will definitely pop into your head when you enter this quaint boutique at the Filipino Zone of Greenbelt 5.
Bonne Bouche is a "collective effort" of 4 designers:
- Elena Bautista designs the jewelry
- Michi Calica designs the clothes
- Lupe Saenz manufactures the shoes designed by Stella Quimbo
- Nicole Sheker designs the handbags
Elena spent one afternoon with us to tell us more about Bonne Bouche, to show us their store and to share with us some of their latest offerings:
If you love vibrant colors and prints, then you'll definitely love our next designer. Watch out for her profile only here at RAPPLER. - Rappler.com
