Among the lively shops of Bonifacio High Street, this ambition began to take shape in 2014. With the help of Vitality Pet Food, Hobbes & Landes, and my first pet fashion show, I debuted it there. In that brief but electrifying moment, I saw a glimpse of the future I had always dreamed of, a place where style and companionship flourished in perfect harmony. The event's success hinted at a future revolution and showcased the unrealized potential of the Philippine fashion industry.
Alabang Town Center contacted Alpo just a few months later to announce that they would be sponsoring a show, which would further solidify the growing interest in pet fashion. The path we were on was clearly a growing movement, not just a passing fad. Pet fashion may have been commonplace in other parts of the world, but it was a somewhat uncharted territory for us. Others' hopes and dreams of a pet fashion industry revival have already been dashed. Still, I wouldn't back down. My goal was to revolutionize and take pet fashion to new heights in the Philippines, not only introduce it.
