Clear your calendar on 1.31.2014, ABILIDAD Clothing is teaming up with VENTRI Clothing for a year-starter! We’re not just selling merch, we’ll also be featuring Bacolod’s beautiful local bands amidst the booze and the artful nightlife at the Art District. See you there! ABILIDAD, THE DEFINITION noun. A Hiligaynon (the dialect in Bacolod) term meaning “ability.” ABOUT ABILIDAD CLOTHING Hailing from Zip Code 6100, Area Code 034 Islas de Las Filipinas, ABILIDAD CLOTHING is a two-piece tandem (that’s me and my husband) in sync with Negrense artists aiming to bring and preserve the local scene and its objet d’art into the folds of your classic T-shirt. With its tagline “VIVIR LA VIDA DURA,” ABILIDAD Clothing hopes to represent the struggle and strength, potential and talent, and the determination and zeal in our culture, society, and daily lives through something that exists next to our very skin – our clothes. So check out the scene, and check out our merch. LIVE LIFE HARD. Proprietress: Vivien Marie Lopez of Spit Or Swallow Resident Graphic Designer and Co-Proprietor: Edman Chris Dominique Jorillo of Anonymous RELEASES 1. Ciudad De Bacolod/Santa Muerte Tee (October 2012) Born from the designer’s penchant for diamonds and sugar skulls.
2. ALMORANUTS Tee (November 2012) The offspring born from the sex of the words “almoranas” meaning “hemorrhoids” and (yes) nuts.
3. KARNE, DUGA, DUPLA = SABOROSO! (December 2012) To translate, “Meat, juice/excretion, spit – delicious/flavorful!” You get the gist. It’s a hungry panda, too.
