The story of the Bayo Franchise started with the idea of Filipinos being known for their unique fashion sense which dates back to the early settlers, from the bahag to the baro’t saya and barong. As fashion styles keep changing, a Filipina can stick to their roots to a more clean and classic look made by BAYO. BAYO, a made-to-measure dress shop before that has expanded into one of the most classy ready-to-wear fashion brands today. Originally from Bacolod, BAYO which means “dress” in Ilonggo, has a comfortable and classic style which caters to the modern Filipina. Though BAYO’s designs make women look lavishly fashionable, don’t be deceived as the prices are reasonable and for sure, worth it.
