MANILA – Korean pop star Sandara Park, who has been dubbed by Vogue as a woman who “has stepped into high fashion’s big leagues,” is setting a trend with her new bag from the Philippines’ very own Divisoria.
The former 2NE1 member recently shared a photo of her holding a “Bayongciaga” bag, which she got from Manila’s bargain shopping district.
The humble shopping tote looks similar to Balenciaga’s $2,000 multi-colored leather bag launched last year.
In an article published online in September last year, Vogue said: “With even more hair colors, skate merch, and designer goods to try on and test out, it’s only a matter of time before Park is setting trends on the runway.”
The magazine also praised the Korean pop star as she “consistently pulls together outfits that mix the best in insider labels.”
Park started her showbiz career in the Philippines in 2004 as a contestant of the ABS-CBN talent search Star Circle Quest.
