Meet the two Kathys
Kathy Gregorio-Añover and Kathy Sarabia-Babst are the designers behind their namesake brand Kathy & Kathy. The Ilonggas have a long-standing love affair with handcrafted keepsake heritage jewellry and after four years in the business, they’ve decided to finally have a showroom in Manila to accommodate their growing number of customers. Their pieces are pretty but not too precious that you can’t wear them everyday, even with a t-shirt and jeans; in fact, styling them casually lends a cool girl vibe to the otherwise traditional designs inspired by your lola’s heirloom pieces. I got invited to the launch two Saturdays ago and enjoyed trying on the pieces along with a very enthusiastic group of power women while munching on Ilonggo-inspired pica pica and glasses of Hendrick’s gin. Scroll below to see how the guests wore their Kathy & Kathy pieces and a glimpse of the permanent gin cart because shopping is just so much more fun with cocktails.
Their showroom is located at G/F Metrostar Bldg., Metropolitan Ave., Makati City. By appointment only at 0917-7199224 and 0917-8279056.
