By an unexpected twist of fate, HTP Clothing began as a spur-of-the-moment online selling of pre-loved clothes by its founder and owner, Ricca Del Rosario, only in an attempt to replace the Php3,000 she lost on that seemingly ordinary night in March 2014. She was simply trying to make amends but to her utter surprise, all the pre-loved clothes were sold out in just a day. That's when it all began. Ricca saw this as a rare opportunity and since then started the shopping marathon that rocked her Instagram account every Sunday night. Every time she saw the excitement of the customers on who gets to comment “mine” first to snatch that rare dress for so cheap a price. So every Sunday night, it was a date with her girls. Ricca felt a strong connection to what she’s doing. It felt just right. Like it was meant to be.
From her own second-hand clothes to her friends’, the clamor for affordable fashion was far from over. She then transitioned into selling handpicked outfits from various local and international tiangges so she could offer a wide and interesting selection of clothes to her dear customers. But over time, she realized that outfits from tiangges can sometimes be found in other stores. This is where she made a bold move to finally create HTP Clothing's original and exclusive pieces to set its brand apart from others.
This birth of a new era was inspired by its customers who personally shared their own style and preferences to Ricca. It was important to consider the people who helped HTP Clothing become what it is today. Ricca made it a point to make that her driving force. Now, HTP Clothing has grown and evolved from featuring quality second-hand clothes to passionately creating its own exclusive designs that cater to every Filipina, here and abroad.
HTP Clothing since then started creating fashion pieces that are basic, practical, and most of all, stylish. Original designs are available in solid and neutral colors, as well as interesting patterns that catch the eye. The designs noticeably feature a common inspiration: clean lines, unique cuts, and fashion-forward elements that make them stand out. Now the HTP Clothing catalogue is bursting at the seams with different clothes and accessories that anyone can wear anytime, anywhere.
From its humble beginning on Instagram, HTP is known for its quality products and superb customer service. Nothing has changed now we’re here at our own website. We design our own clothes and we partnered with our local seamstresses to make our ideas come to reality.
