    A brainchild of Wilson Limon who nurtures an affinity for architecture, NIñOFRANCO features collections that are mostly adorned by geometric frills. The native touch to them is hardly missable as well, as Limon has founded some sort of reverence for the ethnic groups in the country after he reinvented the traditional garment of the Bagobo Tagabawa for his thesis back then.

    From everyday wear to the formal pieces and now to the latest lines of face masks, NIñOFRANCO openly collaborates with different local artists and brands alike hence a diversity in its offerings—all while staying truthful to the essence of the brand.

    Nina Inabel

    Nina Inabel is a brand that embodies not only the weaving community of Ilocos region that molds every fashion piece but also the farming sector that supplies the raw materials. The atelier centralizes on the ‘Abel Iloco’ fabric or more widely regarded as ‘Inabel’, an Ilocano dialect that translates to handwoven.

    While it originally creates everyday wear for women, Nina Inabel has also upped its game during these trying times by offering face masks and fashion PPEs of the same caliber.

    This premium Nina Inabel mask is reversible in a nice waterproof dark gray fabric. It's like getting 2 masks in one. ❤ #ninainabel #fashionablefacemask #washablefacemask
