Gone are the days when the sight of steel gray suits and similarly cut womenâ€™s dresses dominated the streets.
The 21st century is all about building individuality and living by the â€œmeâ€ philosophy. That is, everything we do, everything we wear â€” from clothes to shoes to hairstyles and gadgets â€” is an expression of what we love and whatâ€™s important to us.

The 20th Philippine Fashion Week with official technology partner the Power Mac Center bring this philosophy to life with their focus on â€œwearable technology” in a series of fashion shows held last May 28 to 29, 2016 at the Discovery Primea in Makati City.
â€œIt is an honor for Power Mac Center to be invited a second time to the countryâ€™s most anticipated fashion event. The visual feast it provides is the perfect backdrop for us to introduce our own â€˜collection.â€™ This year, we made sure to carefully select functional pieces that complement the contemporary urban lifestyle,â€ said Joey Alvarez, marketing director of Power Mac Center.
Designers today know that not only are we preoccupied with expressing individuality, but also that technology has become an inseparable part of our lives, and the world of fashion is definitely no exception.
