A relief dress known to be a second handled dress from the previous owner and maybe re-use again by the new owner. These came from donations for other nations or nearby countries to extend their help to the unfortunate country who recently suffered by a disastrous calamity.
But apparently here in the Philippines, relief dress is a dang good business, change its name into "ukay-ukay dress", a tagalog form of digging from a file of all relief or second hand dresses. And this time it is not free and you have to buy it from ukay store or relief stall who make this as their business. Usually this is more patronize by many because it is more affordable and yet branded too. Downside is you have to be careful and persevere in digging a good dress because not all is in good condition and in good style.
I am a fan of ukay ukay, just like what I am wearing below!
How about you, do you have a second hand dress too? If you haven't go out now and dig for it!
