Kring Elenzano talks about C.N.A. Philippines
“Teenage girls, kids, yuppies and even moms will surely love our high-quality yet very affordable products! The designs are all unique, cute and definitely wearable. Pinoys have become more influenced by East Asian fashion over the last couple of years so we believe it’s the perfect time for us to bring it here”, says Kring Elenzano, blogger, director, and a self-confessed Koreanophile, who, together with her boyfriend, Jimmy Kim, brought the brand to the Philippines.
