The Coral Story
Established in 2015, Coral Manila was founded 8 years ago by Patricia Gonzalez and Margaux Alampay, two newlyweds and young moms who were united by a shared passion for empowering women through fashion.
The goal was to create a Filipino swimwear line with designs that could provide comfort, coverage, and style to the beach loving citizens of our tropical islands.
To meet the growing demand for their products, Pat and Margaux set up shop in Cainta, Rizal and hired a small team of sewers for the business. Providing a steady source of income and a positive working environment for their staff is a source of pride for this women-led business. Many of the company’s sewers are the bread-winners of their families, the majority of which are women, and each have their own unique stories to tell.
Empowerment through dignified work and design has always been the core mission of the brand. And this holds true for all of Coral Manila’s community. From the staff and to sewers, down to the customers who continue to support the brand through the years.
Through intentionally designed swimwear and clothing that uplift and empower, Coral Manila hopes to remind every woman of her intrinsic strength, dignity, and beauty.
