When asked about his style inspiration, Miko said, “My style’s inspired from different hybrid cultures and inspirations I’ve been through in my life. sometimes I can be preppy, sometimes I love wearing sporty outfits, sometimes I love wearing hip-hop urban street styles and sometimes I just wear something I can see inside my closet and just work it out. I guess my personal style is not how I style myself in a certain kind of way but how I carry these different styles and inspire others. I even sometimes mix both styles in one.”
2. Ira Giorgetti

Asked about his style, Ira replied to When in Manila, “My personal style is a modest blend of eclectic and functional, with classic silhouettes matched with wild colors and accessories. I try my best never to constrain myself to any single particular style, although I draw a lot of inspiration from punk, millennial pop culture, and a little bit of goth tossed into the mix. I often try to mix and match my styles between time periods, and I sometimes theme my looks according to my current interests (could be anything from a special kind of Japanese burger to an episode of American Horror Story!) If I had to pick my favorite designers, they would have to be Gareth Pugh, Riccardo Tisci, and Christopher Bailey.”

Here’s what he says about his style: “My personal style is very random. I don’t have specific style, like I’m not focusing into basics, dapper look, and other looks. Some people say that my look is very versatile. Because as you can see on my blog my styles are mixed up. But most of the time, my style is more on street style. Not too edgy at the same time not too basic. Because I like layering clothes and mix it with few prints to make the whole look happy and not look boring.”
4. David Guison
On his website, David Guison introduces himself as the founder of the top fashion blog DG Manila.

David is a little thrifty, sharing, “I’m a big fan of mixing high and low pieces together. I love a good challenge so I often go to thrift stores (ukay ukay) to shop for clothes. Take this baseball jersey for example which I got for only 50 pesos! Such a steal right? This concept started when I was in college when I wouldn’t have enough money to shop for clothes since all of my allowance would always go to buying food lol. I started buying from ukay ukay stores, department stores etc!”
About his personal style, David tells When in Manila, “My personal style is a fusion of preppy and rugged. I like going for structured, well-tailored clothing and mixing them with grungy pieces.”
