Making a difference has never been this fashionable!

The quirky and inventive Kyna Gem Sy finally launched her own clothing line, Ámen!

You probably know Kyna through her unorthodox way of designing clothes, that she and her pets both wear (yes, she dresses up her pets too, matchy-matchy levels).

Now, Kyna finally shares her unique designs to everyone who wishes to wear such avant-garde and scene stealing pieces. She describes it as stylish yet comfortable couture wear presented in an extremely authentic and no filter way: no photoshops, real friends as models and clothes that are made with a purpose.



Fashion with a purpose

It has always been a dream for Kyna to start her own clothing line and now, she has finally kicked the ball rolling! Ámen features unique, imaginative and rare pieces that are perfect for women who are not afraid to express themselves and make a mark. Amen aims to inspire women to just go out there and flaunt their style because at the end of the day, you are beautiful and you do 'you'.

Aside from this, a percentage of the profit from every piece sold will be donated to Kyna's chosen beneficiaries. Take note, these beneficiaries are individuals that needs assistance and support.



"We are real people behind the screens and we genuinely care for our customers and our staff members. We believe in ethical fashion and slow trade; our staff members are family and we won’t compromise their wellbeing for profit”, says Kyna.

Kyna also stressed that a lot of people contributed and helped her in order to build Ámen. From quality control and production, whom her brother in law, Dakota Lin helped her out with, up to Manang Lolly and Kuya Rey who helps her in the creation of the pieces. Kyna admitted that she was so scared at first but her family and friends encouraged her and cheered for her throughout the process. Ámen's first collection consists of nine exquisite pieces that Kyna described as,"15th century monarchs enter modern day space time continuum".

The clothes are limited to 7 pieces per design while the size ranges from XS to XL, making sure that anyone would be able to wear it.

The price ranges from Php 2,200 to Php 4,400.In a few weeks, Ámen will soon release limited edition pieces so you better watch out and keep yourselves notified.
