R-U-A is a start-up clothing streetwear company that is inspired by enduring traditional
forms. R-U-A’s finely crafted apparel is made with quality materials by passionate
makers. 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 public 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 personalities who are known for expressing their personal style
beyond gender norms-- Andre Drilon, a young man who is breaking norms by wearing skirts, and JP Singson, a fashion buyer and stylist based in Paris. Panelists will be asked to share their personal journey towards discovering their personal style through funny, revealing, and shocking anecdotes of their experiences.
The second part is a styling demonstration of androgynous looks. A male and a female
model will be styled by a fashion stylist, Kris Cruz using clothes of R-U-A. Each look will be described by the stylist and practical tips will be shared.
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.
