Hello Rainbowholic friends and かわいい shopaholics in the Philippines! OMG!!! ;_;
I proudly present to you… KAWAII PH STORE, a kawaii brand collective based in Manila, Philippines.
All of us here at KPH Store are dreaming big that someday… we will be able to start exporting our made-with-love handmade items and let this “kawaii movement” create livelihood opportunities that will also provide employment among our Filipino brothers and sisters (ex: Kawaii Factory). We used to aim to bring Kawaii Japan to the Philippines, but now, since that has been successfully achieved already,.. we are ready to take bigger risks and scare ourselves with our crazy dreams. We would like to bring Kawaii PH to the world by using all our local resources and maximizing the power of the web. : )
This project was made possible with the help of our talented friends over at Mediaflakes + Little Miss Paintbrush‘s mad kawaii illustration skills! Thank you so much Earvin, Candie, Janel, Jillian, Kaye, Francis, Eric 兄さん, Mica.. everyone~! ;_; I consider this as a milestone in my kawaii career together with my friends, huhuhu!
There might be bugs here and there.. but no worries, we are working on those! Kindly bear with us for a while. : )
What is the Kawaii PH Store?
It is a store-slash-collective made up of artists, designers and dreamers who wish to start pursuing bigger dreams of establishing their own brands one day by tapping on this platform’s leveraged power – an idea called “collective marketing strategy” that is based on the ideals of helping and inspiring each other for common good.
We believe that collective hype is much more effective in marketing local talent and earning eyeballs in the increasingly competitive global marketplace for new, innovative and quirky ideas.
What are the goals of this community-based platform?
First of all, the direction of this collective is geared towards leveraging the talent, potential and capacity of Filipino artists, creators and designers towards achieving global acceptance and recognition of what is called as the Filipino talent and creative (noun) disrupt as our contribution to the development of the worldwide Kawaii-lifestyle movement.
