After centuries upon centuries of fighting for equal rights, women are finally starting to make themselves heard and prove that they are just as, if not more, capable than men. You can see this everywhere, from women rising to power in political and corporate positions to them being empowered in the household. Fortunately, this new era for females is palpable not only internationally but also right here in the Philippines.

As a way of honoring women, the entire month of March is designated as the National Women’s Month. It is a special time when extra emphasis is put not only on women’s triumphs, but also on the ongoing fight for equal rights and against injustice. If you have yet to attend any socially relevant event this Women’s Month, one simple but effective way to show your solidarity is by supporting local fashion brands by women for women. Not only do these stores offer trendsetting finds, all their products are also proudly made here in the country.

Read on to know the top five local fashion brands in the Philippines where you can score amazing finds!
