Our blood is blue, our heart is gold. Yes, we are proud Atenistas. Being an Atenean isn’t a mere title, it’s a way of life.
A-Fash collaborated with IgKnight, a student-oriented entity whose primary goal is to substantially boost Ateneo de Naga’s School Spirit. When we knew about this collab, we were utterly excited because this is our chance to showcase our individual sense of style highlighting our school pride.
Ateneo is outstanding and timeless. That sums up why we chose a classic motif. Before we elaborate on our outfit details, may we acquaint you first to the aforementioned company who produced these appealing shirts, IgKnight. (info from their official Facebook page as linked above)
IgKnight (ĭg-nīt’) – to set the Knighthood, nobilified by Magis, in every Atenean on fire
IgKnight Inc.’s primary purpose is to provide apparel and merchandise to encourage students to be Pro-APE: Ateneo, Pinoy, Environment.
The company envisions itself to someday be a household name and globally competitive, having been withstood economic, political and internal setbacks.
The company name IgKnight is a combination of the name of St. Ignatius of Loyola, a former knight himself and the founder of the Society of Jesus, and Knight which are vital symbols of the Ateneo de Naga University. IgKnight, being a homophone of the word Ignite, partially takes on its definition. And thus to “IgKnight” is to set the Knighthood, full of chivalry and valor, in every Atenean on fire.
It provides from head-to-toe apparel and merchandise both ready-to-wear and customized. Together with all its aspirations, the company seeks to provide a product line that offers quality, affordability and identity all at the same time.
