Ia Coca, a Cebu-based designer, recently debuted a new collection that supports vaccinating against the COVID-19 virus – the Cold Shoulder collection. Joined by the tagline "Pabakuna but make it fasyon,” the new series hopes to bring awareness about the importance of the vaccine while also providing a practical and chic outfit to wear. Pieces from the collection include unique silhouettes including cold-shoulder cutouts, off-the-shoulder neckline, one-shoulder silhouettes, and arm slits.
“With the textile design, I took visual cues from what has now become the biggest fashion accessory this vaccination season: band-aids,” the designer, Ia Coca, says. “I really liked wearing these checkered band-aids back in the day and thought that using a similar print with bold and bright colors could add a fun factor to the collection.”
