Dorothy Perkins x Burton Launch at SM Fashion Hall

Dorothy Perkins celebrated its 10th anniversary in the Philippines by opening a store in the newly constructed SM Fashion Hall. It was actually a joint celebration, with Burton Menswear opening its first store in the Philippines. Both were brought in by RSSI (Robinsons Specialty Stores Inc.), the same group that brought Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Warehouse, and River Island to the country. 

We were treated to a British themed tea party and a fashion show that featured pieces from the latest Spring-Summer 2014 collection. The event was hosted by TV host and DJ Aaron Atayde. Oh, and wait, I won GCs for answering a question correctly in their Twitter contest, yay! 

In choosing my outfit for the day, I made sure that I would be comfortable (no heels!). Since the event was held in a huge mall, I anticipated that there would be a lot of walking, and I was right! We had to walk from the third floor, where the stores were located, to the ground floor for the fashion show, then back again. When the event was over, we did some shopping, and I met up with a couple of friends for a movie date. :)

Here are my top picks from the fashion show:

Mango jacket
Forever 21 shorts
Burberry bag
SM Dept Store shoes

  1. Heels or flats, you still look perfect! I am also eyeing at those jumpsuits, I love the prints! However, they're too big for me
