If designer labels are what you're looking for, head to the Ayala Center in Makati City. Greenbelt 3 & 4 have upscale brands like Gucci, LV, Bottega Veneta, etc. Nearby there's Rustan's Department Store which has heaps of designer apparel as well as top end fragrances and cosmetics.

Luxury goods are more expensive in Manila compared to other Asian cities. Manila is a shopping haven for non designer labels.

As mentioned Manila's designer area is in Makati, particularly Greenbelt, however prices aren't really that reasonable. A place of interest that might be a bit out of the way, is Tutto Moda in Alabang Town Center where discounted designer stuff can be found at sometimes really low prices (its off season stuff from Greenbelt 4 like Gucci, Prada,Tods,etc...)

If youre into a good shop and you arrive in Manila, theres one place you really need to head for-

Mall of Asia!

Its over toward the Bay area in Pasay and its grossly huge. Although I'm not too sure about how good it is for designer gear, but you could spend hours there wandering around taking in shops, restaurants and watching some entertainment via bands, etc. All the best and enjoy the phil.
