    In July, Marks & Spencer’s (M&S) opened its flagship store in the Philippines at Central Square, the newest retail destination in the heart of Bonifacio High Street, Taguig.

    The grand launch featured a fresh collaboration with the SoFa Design Institute by means of style-off competition held at the Central Square Atrium. Eight creative student stylists from the SoFa Design Institute were tasked with creating key looks from the Marks & Spencer collection based around three sartorial themes: Stylish work wear, Laidback casual weekend and Stylish night out.
