MUST HAVE: Dresses for the party that you never want to end

Spring 2018 leans into the glitz and glam of vintage wanderlust: late afternoon martinis lounging by the pool in resplendent gilded frocks, painting a picture of a tropical Philippine paradise through a sunkissed lens.




"Mestiza" means a woman of mixed ancestry, as the brand embraces and celebrates the co-founder’s shared Filipino-American heritage. Alessandra and Louisa have created a label that leans into the glitz and glam of vintage wanderlust: late afternoon martinis lounging by the pool in resplendent sheaths, painting a clear picture of a tropical Philippine paradise.



Vintage photographs of their mothers and grandmothers in the Philippines in the 1960s have been the recurrent source of inspiration that fuels every Mestiza collection.

Each garment is designed in the Mestiza New York studio in the Flatiron District, and produced locally in New York City. Alessandra and Louisa use the same couture pattern makers and sewers that have worked with some of the most upscale fashion houses in the United States, and source all of their intricate fabrications and embellishments from the same suppliers that are used by high-end designer brands.
