Filipinos are fashion aficionados by heart. Admit it or not, we love putting our best foot forward, or rather putting on our best outfit forward, whenever we go out, may it be for a special occasion or just for a simple stroll inside a mall. It’s no wonder why in the recent years, more and more big names in the fashion industry are making its way into our shores, from high-end brands like Vera Wang to casual fashion like H&M.

But before swiping your cards on the stores of these international names, don’t forget that a lot of Filipino brands are also stepping up their game and giving these big guys a run for their money. These local names have been giving Filipinos more fashion options that are affordable and made with great quality material too. And what’s more, because they are made by Filipinos, they know what we want and need when it comes to fashion and style.

This week, we asked you our readers about your favorite Filipino fashion brands and we have the results. Check out who made the list and give them a quick visit on your next shopping spree.


9. Uba Laba

Witty shirts for the Ilonggos by Uba Laba


To start our list is Uba Laba.

Whenever the two started to lose interest over their professor’s ramblings in class, they drew and created witty comics and banters to pass time inside the classroom. After graduating and spending some time in the corporate world, the two decided to go back to their passion of drawing and creating wordplay that has now touched the hearts and funny bones of many pinoys. Their hugot-filled t-shirts and other items such as key chains, pens, and stickers became a hit among the youth enabling them to expand from a simple online shop to having eight physical stores in Metro Manila.

It can be said that Linya Linya started out of boredom of two friends, writer Ali Sangalang and artist Panch Alvarez while still in college. Whenever the two started to lose interest over their professor’s ramblings in class, they drew and created witty comics and banters to pass time inside the classroom. After graduating and spending some time in the corporate world, the two decided to go back to their passion of drawing and creating wordplay that has now touched the hearts and funny bones of many pinoys. Their hugot-filled t-shirts and other items such as key chains, pens, and stickers became a hit among the youth enabling them to expand from a simple online shop to having eight physical stores in Metro Manila.
