At R-U-A, we see ourselves beyond simply being a clothing store. We exist because we have a point of view to share with others.
One of R-U-A’s passions is to encourage people to dress in a way that reflects their personal style. This means never having men’s and women’s sections in R-U-A’s online store because of the belief that the way people shop for clothes shouldn’t be influenced by such categories.
To dive deeper into this advocacy, will be hosting a forum called “Everyday Androgyny: how (and why) to pull it off” on December 2, Saturday, 4pm at Hole in the Wall in Century City Mall in Poblacion, Makati, Philippines.
There will be two parts to the event. The first part is a panel discussion to be participated on by Andre Drilon (IG: @vrtualdump), a young man who is breaking norms by wearing skirts, and JP Singson (IG: @jponfashionspeed), a fashion buyer and stylist based in Paris. They will share their personal journeys towards discovering their personal style through funny, revealing, and shocking anecdotes of their experiences.
The second part is a styling demonstration of androgynous looks by Kristin Cruz, a young fashion marketing maven who built her repertoire in Singapore.
We will also have a pop-up store so you can feel and fit our apparels.
This event is just one of the ways that R-U-A will help to create a future when people choose to wear clothes that express their personal style rather than being told that one’s sexual characteristics dictate what one should wear. R-U-A makes beautiful clothes that are crafted by passionate makers. Anyone can wear them, however they want.
We hope to see you on December 2! Kindly RSVP on our FB event page.
