How It Started

Some say to avoid politics if you want to remain friends. In this case, it was because of political ties that a friendship and a business venture began. Their paths crossed because of their affiliation to the Congressional Spouses Foundation, Inc. (CSFI) during the 16th Congress.

While their fathers were busy at the House of Representatives these two ladies were just as preoccupied with their families, their day jobs and their roles as dutiful daughters and representatives of their Congressmen fathers to CSFI. 

It was during a CSFI Lakbay Aral trip to Clark in September 2015, while they shopped for twin handmade wooden mannequins that Joy Belmonte and Looie Lobregat stepped out of the furniture store with an interesting fashion idea.
