Heads Up on "La Copa"!

Four girls on a constant hunt for unique clothes - that will still suit each one's peculiar personality - found themselves always drawing a blank. To them, the seemingly futile exercise was like searching for the Holy Grail. It was a struggle because "...everything seemed to be so commercialized and common. So when Melanie chanced upon a great opportunity, we all decided to pursue it."

Therein lies the story of La Copa, a concept that is all about introducing a unique and distinct sense of style to the local fashion retail scene. "We firmly believe in injecting one's individuality in the way one dresses up, we are all for genuine self–declaration. But with the rapid spread of overly familiar trends, many find it exhilarating just to be themselves. La Copa is offering them an opportunity to do so by offering pieces, which boast of an individual style, allowing them to dress according to their personality."

In short, their clothes will appeal to women with a strong sense of identity. Those who want to stand out from the crowd, if not tired of running away - before the bandwagon catches on. "We cater to those women who are self-assured and confident. Those who know themselves and who are not easily swayed by the majority. We also reach out to those who have forgotten themselves because they became too busy with their own families and jobs. Through La Copa, we wish that they may come to terms with their own sense of individuality again."

The store will be carrying their in-house brand, with clothes sourced from different countries. To keep that sense of individuality, items will be offered in limited quantities. They will also be stocking on designer pieces, that is, if they find particular designs that stand apart from the rest. The La Copa pieces will range from Php1,000 and up, depending on design and construction.

As it is La Copa's mission to constantly introduce something new and different, the girls guarantee that customers will be sure to find distinctive pieces on their racks. "More than our pieces, we are focused on the experience which we will be giving our customers. We are also thinking of coming up with small activities in our boutique from time to time. We will make sure that it will be an experience which will keep our customers coming back for more. To show how serious we are with our commitment, aside from our ever-present boutique, we will be creating unusual events in the near future wherein each will be completely different from the other."

La Copa will be opening shop on July 2007 at Penthouse 2 Mancor Corporate Center, 32nd street, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City (beside the Mercedes Benz showroom). In the meantime, you can look forward to wearing these truly unique dresses from their collection:

Loving the gold detail!
A modern Jackie O.
Nice LWD!
Its the coat that makes this a winner!
I want this...
and this!!!
A sweater dress and a crocheted shrug never looked this sexy!
Great structure and very unique indeed!
This top would look great with mannish trousers too!
What to wear to work to set you apart from the long-sleeved shirt, black trousers and pointy pumps wearing crowd.
Wear this over skinny jeans if you can't go short like this! My friend Carissa did and she was getting compliments all day long!
