It was with a global perspective and belief in local design that vitostudio.com was conceived in 2012. The first read-and-shop platform in the Philippines, vitostudio.com aims to highlight, promote and support the most outstanding and prolific Philippine designers today. The site has two main components: the e-zine and online shop.

The vitostudio.com e-zine showcases local design excellence through all-access coverage of fashion shows all year round, editorial stories and many other features that not only inform readers about fashion but also help define one’s notion of fine living. Staying true to the ideals of progressive fashion, the site provides a highly-curated editorial interface where one can browse, read and ultimately, shop.

The online shop of vitostudio.com, meanwhile, is a result of varied collaborations with the country’s premier designers. Each season, vitostudio.com partners with the country’s most prolific and forward-thinking designers to come up with a series of capsule collections that are only available online at vitostudio.com.
