Touted as one of Asia’s most influential designers, Avel Bacudio presented his newest collection titled CYCLES at the Style Origin 2015 Fashion event held last month in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. The exhibition is a follow-up to his successful DOORS and CHURCHES collections.

According to Bacudio, the new collection reflects a similar digital print aesthetic from the previous ones, but this time with jewel tones as accents. Perfectly tailored mash-ups with sportif that are for the modern urbanite man.


The celebrated fashion designer, who was born in CamSur, jump-started his career in Manila at age 17. Armed with sheer talent and determination, Avel Bacudio joined different fashion tilts, consistently topping every competition he participated in. These exploits led to a lot of opportunities for the intrepid designer. Two of Avel’s finest recognitions were 2012 METRO magazine’s “Breakthrough Designer of the Year” and “Asia’s Most Influential Designer 2014” during the Mercedes-Benz Style Fashion Week.

Having designed for different platforms through the years, Avel Bacudio has evolved from an excitable avant-garde fashion artist to one with a clean, tailored, and classic aesthetic, albeit with unmistakable traces of his inimitable sense of humor.

Supporting the world class Filipino designer during the annual event is long established gentlemen’s brand McJim Classic Leather.  The brand provided the essential nuance to the collection, completing the looks for the stylish and contemporary urban male.

“For years, McJim has been providing quality leather products that suit the modern man. This identity complements Avel Bacudio’s ‘Cycle’ collection so we were delighted to be part of show,” McJim said in an official statement.


McJim continues to focus on creating world-class leather products that are at par with foreign and international brands just as he holds up Filipino artists who can stand tall alongside international talents. The brand considers as its mission and its legacy to be a steadfast supporter of numerous noteworthy causes that promote Filipino talents in the global arena. Among their projects that further this cause is the Original Pinoy Music movement, Dreams Get Real, which helps aspiring artists thrive in the competitive music industry.
