“Ingrained in what makes humans human is the concept of choice. Science acknowledges that in the most primordial, animalistic parts of our brain, we function based on two choices: fight or flight. Us humans, we can’t help it. It is in our nature to stand for something.”

“The Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest particle accelerator, was first switched on in 2008. Since then, we witnessed flat-earthers, the takeover of the Kardashians, and about six Sharknado films.
Now, we are not saying that the multiverse is real. It is just that there is no denying we live in strange times.”

“Times are changing. Mutation is a real concern and giraffes are listed as vulnerable—a step below endangered—on the list of threatened species. Much, much scarier than ghosts.
Thankfully, also on the rise is the concept of zero-waste. It is a practice where people commit to producing as little trash as possible by choosing reusable products and not wasting resources in the first place.”

“Jojie Lloren. James Reyes. Dennis Lustico. Jo Ann Bitagcol.
If you think we’re listing down some of the best in Philippine fashion, you are 100% correct. But, these people have something else in common. They can be your instructor if you enroll in a course with Fashion + Arts + Business Creatives.”
