Who doesn’t love a good buffet? I mean, it’s all the food you can eat for a set price. Sign me up for that any day! But what if you could do that with clothes? No, I’m not going crazy. I swear! Think about it: you pay a set amount then get to hoard all the clothes you want. I know, it’s almost every girl’s dream isn’t it? Well, that dream is about to come true with Season 1 of Clothes Buffet Manila happening this October!
For a fixed price, you’ll get the chance to snag (and bag) as many clothes as you want in 15 minutes! All you have to do is remember these three steps: Pick it, Zip it, and Keep it! Want to know more? Read on to find out all the details, plus the chance to win a FREE PASS to Season 1 of Clothes Buffet Manila!
Every CBM participant is given 15 minutes. Within that time slot, you get to choose anything you want from over 30,000 fashion pieces from top brands! Need a new pair of chic jeans? Snag them! Want a new dress for that perfect date night? Grab it! Dying for a new, cute top to wear to a party? Snatch it!
If you want to know what to expect to find at Clothes Buffet Manila then make sure to regularly check out this page.
All CBM participants will be given a 32×23 cm “Buffet Bag”. This is where you’ll be stuffing all your fabulous finds. How much you can cram inside your bag is up to your folding skills! The amount to beat is a whopping 15 pieces! Think you can do better? If you’re a folding master, you can even fit up to 18 pieces! Just remember, you must be able to close your bag properly before you can leave!
Once you’ve managed to fit everything inside your bag, it’s yours to keep! That’s it. No questions asked! So in that 15 minutes, why not bag yourself either an entire outfit or a whole new wardrobe?
So, I bet you’re wondering how much this is all going to cost you. Don’t worry, you won’t be breaking the bank because for just PHP1,999.00 you get the following: the 15 minute shopping wave where you grab all you can, a 32x23cm Buffet Bag, plus a surprise loot bag of goodies! Selected waves are also sponsored by certain brands and you can win prizes from them, so book strategically as well as early. And since CBM is so generous, expect to find exciting items like planners, gift cheques, and beauty products too on the buffet floor! Yup, it won’t just be clothes that are up for grabs!
What if you’re not yet satisfied at the end of your fashion haul? Don’t fret because you can sign up for as many shopping waves as you want as long as slots and tickets are available! Plus, every wave is fully restocked so if you sign up for multiple ones then you’ll be sure to get what you missed the last time!
If you’re already as as excited as I am, then keep reading to find out how and when to book tickets as well as learn essential tips on how best to conquer at Clothes Buffet Manila!
Tip #1: BE early and BUY early!
Whatever time your shopping wave starts, be there at least 30 minutes to an hour before! Keep in mind that you need to purchase your ticket, get your buffet bag, then deposit your own personal bag/s. You don’t want to waste time queuing up for everything! It’s also best that you purchase your tickets online as early as possible. You can do that here!
Tip #2: Quality and quantity
The key to conquering your shopping wave is to know your STYLE and your SIZE. If you blindly grab and go, you might end up regretting what you picked out simply because the clothes don’t flatter you. Don’t you think it’s better to pick out a few good pieces that suit you rather than an entire bag full of clothes which you won’t end up wearing?
Tip #3: Travel light
Wear light, fitted clothing and comfortable shoes. Make sure you also have pockets to securely store your valuables because personal bags won’t be allowed on the buffet floor!
Tip #4: Prepare your ticket
Don’t forget to print and bring your ticket voucher. A valid ID is needed too!
Tip #5: Bring a friend!
What better way to bond with your girl friend than a shop-all-you-can experience like this? Not only does it make the whole thing more fun, but you can even help each other out during the wave!
Bonus tip: Bring extra cash!
If you think the Clothes Buffet Manila is all the shopping you’ll need to do for the day, then think again because there’s also going to be a mini bazaar where you can purchase all kinds of trendy accessories, bags, and even more clothes. Think of it as the cherry on top of a perfect shopping day!
