Gingersnaps’ 20th Anniversary

Every time I pass by a Gingersnaps store, I squeal like a little girl and secretly hope that I can go back in time just so I can wear their clothes.

I’ve been a huge fan of the brand ever since I was in high school. Thanks to an intense desire to get one of their items, I discovered I could still fit in their biggest sizes after mustering up the courage to ask if I could use the kids’ dressing room. Shortly after, I found out about Just G which is owned by the same company.

Back in college, Crissey and I would often drop by the Gingersnaps at Shangri-la to ogle at their adorable skirts. We perfectly knew that they were made for kids, but we couldn’t help but get some for ourselves (example 1 and 2).

When we have children of my own, we will surely dress them up in Gingernaps and Just G. Until now we still check Gingersnaps for anything that might fit us, lol.

It’s not surprising how this proudly Filipino brand has managed to make itself global, with stores in Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Everything is just so classy and cute!

Below are some photos from the anniversary fashion show that was held last February 1st at SM Aura.

DANDA was born a natural model, thanks to her gorgeous parents Fatima Rabago and Hideo Muraoka. She was the model for Gingersnaps’ last campaign, and I first found out about her when her mom did my make-up for a magazine shoot (weird experience because in that moment, the make-up artist looked 10000000x better than the model a.k.a. me).
