business attire for job interviews and work in partnership with Welcome
House Good Shepherd Sisters Inc. – a crisis intervention center.
Suit it Up Manila will be suiting up celebrities, influencers and business
luminaries during the event in the finest collection luxury cloth from
England and Italy to serve as inspiration and insight into the upcoming
trends in men’s fashion. Performances from top DJs and entertainment
personalities (Foreign & Local) will be featured at the party. Guests are
encouraged to donate their old suits and/or clothing during the event as
part of Suit it Up Manila’s advocacy.

Suit Social was founded by Suit It Up Manila’s COO, Franco Ongkingco.
Pitti Uomo in Florence, is described as the, “world’s most important platform for
men’s clothing and accessory collections and for launching new projects in men’s
fashion.” This Event offers multiple facets of exploration for attendees, from

SUIT SOCIAL, SHAPING THE SUIT CULTURE IN THE PHILIPPINES
“I have always envisioned more and more Filipinos Suiting Up. We really want to
create and feature reasons, places and experiences where one can wear a coat
or suit in both casual and formal settings. That is #TheSuititUpLife.
To look good, feel good as well as to provide a platform for self-expression that
resonates with all.
By starting Suit Social we hope to strengthen the Suit Culture here in the
Philippines as well as to inspire all Generation of Suit Enthusiasts to gather and
celebrate their passion of Tailored Menswear every year.”
- Franco Ongkingco, COO of Suit It Up Manila
