On Saturday June 15th, the final bash for PLDT Canada Philippine Fashion Week took place at the chic boutique, GOTSTYLE boutique in the Distillery District of Toronto.

 

The brand new expansion of the noted GOTSTYLE Menswear store, opened in November of last year and was the perfect backdrop for this evening. Merging fashion, awareness and commerce, the goal of this evening’s boite was to introduce the fashion designers who flew in from The Philippines with the leading buyers of top notch Canadian boutique retailers in the hopes of forging a friendship and possible collaboration and business ventures.
