A Leg Fashion Show Like No Other

People close to me know that I am a lover of stockings and socks. Back when I was working, I'd buy stockings and socks more than shoes and bags. I was very to glad to have attended A Leg Fashion Show Like No Other upon the invitation of one of the designers, Ferdi Salvador.  The wonderful, fashionable line up of designer socks and stockings has once again sparked my longing to wear one.

The show was presented by Manila Bay Hosiery Mills Inc. (MBHMI), makers of Leg Love by City Lady and Elements by Gold Toelast Wednesday at Zuellig Building entitled Leg Love Fashion Show.

The goal of this event is  to further strengthen its position as the market leader in fashion hosiery in the country.  MBHMI showcased four diverse designers, who are in their own right, proved that fashion is not complete without this leg necessities.

Renan Pacson's I Love Hue  collection is inspired with his love of street style , interesting mix of materials and by the feeling of being young, which he wanted to celebrate with bursts of colours.  Renan took his collection to a new plane by taking his inspiration from three different patterns that evoke his youth. By combining pressed fossilized flowers, melted crayons and confetti his collection is a myriad of fresh new patterns and colours.  The celebration of Hue-th is truly a Renan Pacson signature.

Multi awarded Pablo Cabahug's City Lady’s Leg Love Designer Series evoked more emotion than geometric patterns this season.  The Central St. Martins educated designer drew inspiration from the emotions of a black widow.  His patterns became bolder and stronger which has become his new aesthetic.  The collection gives a new twist to women who command power and are strong willed and does not compromise when it comes to fashion.  Pablo Cabahug encapsulates wearable emotion with his collection for Leg Love Designer Series.

Bianca Valerio's Leg Love Couture is inspired by the glitz and glamour of her world, her collection this season is all that and more.  The use of rhinestones and crystals lends the wearer the illusion of a longer leg and little surprises that titillates the eyes with sparkles. Leg Love Couture line is directed to the fun and sophisticated woman that doesn’t mind being a little adventurous with her fashion.  Little curiosities like an arabesque pattern on the ankle add the right spice to the woman that wears .

Ferdi Salvador's Elements by Gold Toe is inspired by his travels abroad.  The street preps of London, the conservative but fun “suits” of Hong Kong, and the colorful palette of Barcelona’s laid back fashion culture. But more than that he is inspired by his sock loving friends like Martin Wisniewski, Enrique Lopez, Enrique Yupangco, Siggy Manglapus, and David Celdran to mention a few that are leaders in their industry but are not afraid to be fashionable and add that fun twist with their - SOCKS.  From subtle polka dots to mondrianesque patterns, Elements by Ferdi Salvador gives you another season of wearable fun and fashion that is forward.    

Leg Love by City Lady and Elements by GOLDTOE are available at SM Accessories and other leading department stores nationwide and online at  and
