Stylista Challenge at The Off Price Show 2012

The Off Price Show is a new concept in discount shopping. The presentation of non-moving inventory of branded merchandise all in one venue, will provide the visitors with the chance to be able to purchase the brands they want at an off price. Different activities will highlight the buying experience with a creative showcase of different fashion forward concepts and ideas.

Stylista is an attempt to provide the attendees of the show with different ideas on how to dress up using the shows merchandise (non moving inventory). 4 of Manila’s upcoming fashion stylists will provide a fashion concept being used by today's fashion conscious consumers such as casual wear, streetwear, business/smart casual, and sportswear. These concepts will be displayed in the center of the she venue. The displays will consist of mannequins and wearable merchandise of the show. A small launch happened during the first day of the show announcing the winner of the contest.
