As Team Manila smeared shirts and wallets and bags and lanyards with their love and pride for all things local, little did the design studio think that their attitude towards Manila would spread city-wide. They started their clothing brand, Team Manila Lifestyle in 2005. Fast forward to four years later and we have a kind of Manila pride last heard from The Hotdogs. And just as pride for Manila is continually spreading, so is Team Manila continually growing.
To showcase this slow-but-sure climb to mainstream success, Team Manila is holding a month-long exhibit aptly called “Home of the Orig.” On display are some of the design studio’s works as far back as 2001 so there’s a lot of history there, too.
The exhibit started last October 16 but will run until November 20 so you have got time. Home of the Orig is currently at the Rockwell R1 corridor until October 31. It then moves to Trinoma on November 6, where it will remain on display until November 20.
If you are a fan of Manila, be sure to swing by. You wouldn’t want to miss the goodies—some of which are displayed in our gallery—too.
