We’re going back to the big leagues to represent Filipino fashion and design.

        We took center stage at New York Fashion Week on July 13, 2017, as we presented Bench Body’s all-new lineup of summer-ready styles. Held at Studio Ten of Industria Studios NYC, the presentation of Bench Body’s Spring / Summer 2018 Collection marks our 30th year in the Philippine retail industry.

Following last year’s presentation, Bench continues to represent the best in Philippine fashion in the global scene. Created in collaboration with New York-based brand and CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund finalist, Cadet, our new Bench Body collection boasts underwear and swimwear that go bold in more ways than one.

        The Spring / Summer 2018 Collection explores the tropics with pieces that merge collegiate cool and a sultry, summer state of mind. Botanical prints and bright, bold hues come together to show the best of the sunny season.

        Check out all the looks from the New York runway and see how we brought the Manila sun all the way to the East Coast.
