As Christmas draws near, the shopping opportunities get better and better. More than the usual spots that offer up holiday treats, the season is also when unique finds and exclusives are available. That hard-to-find designer that you save up for every year? Those special edition products that you can’t find anywhere? Or even just brands that don’t usually hit your radar but turn out to be just the one you need.
Over the past weekend, a lot of pop-ups and trunk shows went down, but don’t fret! There are a lot more coming and ongoing so we listed them down for easy reference. Block out these dates and brace yourself!
Lanai x Halo Halo
Better be a little smart and clear out your schedule for tomorrow if you want to catch this one. It’s a one-day trunk show featuring bags, accessories, and home accents from Halo Halo. If you love their woven goods that are all-Filipino, you won’t have any excuses to miss this.
Carl Jan Cruz Pambahay Launch
CJ Cruz is a favorite of the in-crowd these days. So if you don’t want to be left out, get ready for Thursday as the designer presents his Pambahay collection. It’s also special since this is the first time CJ partnered up with a store for a launch as opposed to his previous ones held at his atelier.
Fete at the Park
Currently ongoing until Dec. 31, you can visit Fete at the Park to avail of the different upcoming brands such as Mantou, Shop Gala, Bare Essentials, Smell Chic, and a lot more. It’s best for those who want to shop for everyone in their list in one go.
The Designer’s Holiday Bazaar
Find your favorites from Joel Escober, Ken Samudio, Joyce Makitalo, and Arnel Papa at this bazaar. Piece of advice: Prepare some serious moolah and for the possibility of finding a gift for yourself this Christmas.
Minkle Craft Bazaar
If you need some fine leather goods, tassel, and semi-precious earrings, novelty food items to stuff those stockings this season, pop by Minkle Craft Bazaar from Nov. 24 to 26. Bring the whole family if you’re up for it so you can make it a full-on shopping party.
Cura V Presents Au Courant Trunk Show
