Recap | 2016 In Photos

The Working Class 2016 Recap in Photos

As we look forward to 2017 and all the possibilities it brings, here’s a recap of our 2016 in photos. All photos were taken by our creative team (Matt, Em2x, Zach and RJ) for The Working Class, ranging from events, features, as well as lookbooks. We would like to thank each and everyone for your continued support not only for us, but for the progression of Cebuano culture, be it in music, clothing, art, or lifestyle as a whole. We might be a small metropolis in a third world country but we have a history and heritage of talent that I believe is world-class and deserves attention. That is what we aim to motivate, cultivate and elevate.

Happy new year to all, and may you have a wonderful 2017! Bear with us as we bring you better content this 2017. We will do our best to provide more curated and relevant articles to you and continue improving this year. For now, check out a compilation of some photos we took last year.

Recap | Threadfest Manila 2016

Recap: Threadfest Manila 2016

Last November 19, Threadfest, an event that has been promoting original art, music, and independent clothing brands in the Philippines since 2010, was held at B-side, The Collective at Makati. The event featured merchandise from indie clothing brands well as performances from established veterans and up-and-coming bands. Even though it poured heavily on the first few hours, that did not stop people from coming to the event. The traffic and the rain was all worth it because the audience were treated to an awesome night of clothing and music. Legendary performances from legendary bands capped the night and entertained everyone who came from all parts of the country. The Manila audience surely knows how to appreciate and support their local brands and musicians and was on full display during this year’s Threadfest.

We are honored to be one of the media partners for Threadfest Manila 2016. It’s amazing to see firsthand the love that the people from the Capital show towards clothing brands and musicians from the South.

Congratulations to Cebu’s Dymphna, Drop Decay, Sirens, to the legends Gabby Alipe, John, & Russell of Urbandub, and Faspitch, for an awesome night of music. Mad props to Cebu’s clothing brands DEADWAYS, 6twelve indie, The Higher Class, and NICK AUTOMATIC™, and to Davao City‘s REVERE, as well as barber Willow Hoods.

Mad love and congratulations to the organizers sir Nicolo Nimor and sir Koi Busalla for an epic event.

Most of all, a big hand to everyone who came and showed that the rain and traffic can never dampen an awesome night of local, homegrown music and clothing festival. You are the ones who keep the local indie culture alive with your love and support.

Check out some photos we took at the event below.

Recap | Nick Automatic Parkmall Branch Turns One

Nick Automatic Parkmall Cebu Turns One

Last weekend, Nick Automatic, one of the pioneers in Cebu’s independent clothing scene, celebrated their first year at their Parkmall branch. After closing down the Doodle Store more than a year ago as well as their J Center Mall branch, the brand focused their presence at the Parkmall location, making it their only store in Cebu. For the unfamiliar, Nick Automatic has been an icon in the local independent streetwear industry for many years now and influenced other local independent clothing brands not only in Cebu but the whole country as well. They have been part of many collaborations with different lifestyle brands such as Eight Wolves and WIP Caps, making them one of the most popular and sought after brands in the Philippines. You can cop any of their merchandise not only at their store in Parkmall, but also online. You can visit the Nick Automatic webstore here.

We would like to congratulate the people behind Nick Automatic on their first anniversary at their Parkmall branch. We are looking forward to see them evolve and adapt to cater to the ever changing fashion market. Cheers to more years!

Check out the photos we took at their store below.

Recap | Color And Calligraphy Fair Cebu

Recap | Color And Caligraphy Fair Cebu

Last weekend, National Bookstore along with brands such as Zig Kuratake Philippines, Uniball, Stabilo, and many others hosted the Color and Calligraphy Fair Cebu, held at SM City Cebu Northwing Atrium.  The event’s goal was to showcase Cebuano calligraphers and artists and give exposure to the craft. It also aims to make the tools more readily available in the market for calligraphy artists and enthusiasts alike. The activities included a live mural as well as booth and stage calligraphy demo that featured local artists AJ Tabino, Janot, Chan Cane, Hansoy Jurado, Gian Solamo,  Sandee Suan, Chinchin Trinidad, and Meream Pacayra as well as other artists from Manila. National Bookstore also provided walls with drawings where anyone can color the artwork using the pens from participating brands at the fair.

Events like this provide a much needed boost and exposure for our local caligraphy artists and we are thankful for National Bookstore and especially Zig Kuratake for showcasing these talented Cebuanos and spreading the art of coloring and calligraphy in our city, especially to the younger generation. Check out our photos from the event below.
