The designer experience in the Philippines is unique in that clients or wearers actually have a personal relationship or connection with creators of their garments. In pre-COVID times, clients would visit the atelier of their favorite designer, have a chat, collaborate on a new piece. Sometimes, client and creator would even step out for coffee or cocktails. This is high fashion in the Philippines—intimate, personal and perpetually imbued with affection. Clients are friends and vise versa. Fittings with designers are as special are the events themselves. In fact, the process of finishing your ensemble is, in itself, a special event.

Intrinsically, the local fashion landscape is anchored on craft and all things bespoke. Once in a while, a regarded designer would launch a ready-to-wear line, but never fast-fashion market. Pieces would consistently be limited and handcrafted. Transitioning to a digital realm has also been an ongoing conversation in amongst industry players, but it was only during the recent pandemic that it had become an inevitable and immediate prerequisite for moving forward into a new world order.

Envisioned as an online marketplace for exceptional Philippine ready-to-wear pieces, NEW MOOD, launched in July 25 as a response to the current climate in the fashion industry. Its founders, Cathy Binag, Puey Quinones and Dong Ronquillo wanted to create a venue that would “showcase Filipino craftsmanship to more Filipinos here and abroad.”

Four of the country’s most forward-thinking fashion designers will usher in the site’s launch: Ivarluski Aseron, Jaggy Glarino, Dennis Lustico and Lulu Tan Gan. Each collection, according to New Mood Creative Director Dennis Lustico, was decidedly “functional, classic, investment pieces that are very much anti fast fashion.” The main idea, said the team behind New Mood, was to bring practical, thoughtful and well crafted pieces more accessible to clients. Designs are likewise conceived to complement new lifestyles and mindful consumption. Pieces go beyond trend or season. They are instead more transitional in that they are crafted to function as style staples throughout the year.

Here, are look at wardrobe essentials from The New Mood.

    Good day,

    My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

    What for?

    Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with thenewmood.online definitely stands out.

    It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

    There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

    So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

    More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

    Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

    Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out thenewmood.online.

    CLICK HERE http://talkwithcustomer.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    It could be a game-changer for your business – and it gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately (and there’s literally a 100X difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes.)

    Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

    Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective.

    You could be converting up to 100X more leads today!

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number.

    The new text messaging feature lets you follow up regularly with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

    Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.
