The nomination period for The Multiply Origination Awards ends in eleven days. Multiply is an online shopping mecca but LBR, finding something original can be hard! Most merchants/sellers offer clothes and accessories from Bangkok or China or re-sell makeup that isn’t available in local stores. If you’re like Joyce who is having a hard time finding a merchant to nominate… well, let me help you!
Here is a list of eligible (meaning they have the trusted badge) merchants who offer their own original designs:

Beach couture! SOAK SWIMWEAR started in 2007 debuting its capsule collection with just a handful of styles. Upon its release, it immediately captured a cult following among fashion-forward beach loving women. Today, it continues to make waves in shores world wide.
The School of Satchel
Contemporary design values meet traditional craftsmanship. SOS supports the Philippine leather industry, employing only local manufacturing and local materials for their products (made of 100% genuine leather).
Handcrafted shoes. Soles made out of recycled tires. Made in the Philippines.
Milea Orchard and Bee Farm
Milea offers beauty products made out of bee honey, using natural beeswax as a major ingredient in various natural and organic products. They also strive to continually cultivate the enthusiasm of our local farmers to nurture their own honey bee colonies that may pave the way towards natural and sustainable agriculture.
The Designer-RTW brand is a good mix for the fashion scene. Not only are they up-to-date with the latest trends but the brand also keeps in mind the accessibility and convenience in buying a piece. Known for its unique use of elements and quirkiness with every classic and glamorous piece, Moonshine sells limited designs and pieces for those who don’t want to bump into someone with the same outfit.

Hope that helps!
