MANILA, Philippines - Thirty one (31) of the most talented young designers showed how spectacularly world class Filipinos is during the Philippine Designers Gala 2018.
The first to conquer the runway is Maestro John. Maestro is known for his love for the culture infused with his designs. It’s like you are embracing Filipino symbols and cultures while watching his creations slay the runway. His designs were not just spectacularly elegant but you will definitely love the richness in culture of the Philippines shown on it.
Next is Nhoy Tenerife. Sir Nhoy’s creation showed elegance, class and realness’ of a woman. His creations will not just make a woman a lady but a true queen.
The third designer to grace the runway is Edwin Uy. Sir Edwin is known for dressing beauty queens like Parul Shah and Sandra Lemonon. He proves that whoever wears his creations will surely transform into a confidently beautiful and elegant woman. His creations of men’s wear, on the other hand, show simplicity yet very manly in style.
The fourth designer to take the runway is Marllon Tabangcura. His creations of women’s outfit are very classy, modern and sophisticated while his creations of men’s wear were very unconventional. In my personal opinion, his men’s wear collection is his signature.
Marvin Garcia’s collection emphasizes power, more particularly on elegantly powerful queen. It is such a brilliant idea to infuse elegance, power, and a queenly aura in a design. Sir Marvin did a great job in combining those elements in his designs.
If you want to look like a gem and still feminine and gentle at the same time, Leah Eroy’s collection is the perfect choice. Every woman who will wear her collection will definitely look like a gem with instilled femininity and gentleness. Her men’s wear collection represents a millennial debonair, very refreshing to the eyes.
Black is beauty while white symbolizes purity, combining the two will make a great masterpiece. DANNA’s collection is the 7th to take the runway. The collection is an elegant black and white masterpiece for both men and women. For those who love neutral, DANNA’s collection will be the perfect choice.
Jan Louie Soliman
A very inspirational designer is the 8th to conquer the runway. Jan Louie Soliman is a disabled talented designer. His masterpieces brought calmness for the summer season. His creations were truly blossoming on stage. The inclusion of floral designs made it more refreshing to the eyes. Anyone who will wear his creations will surely blossom.
Feminine, classy and powerful, those words are the best words to describe the masterpieces of the 9th designer of the night, Ralphie Joseph. Sir Ralphies collection elevates woman empowerment with class and femininity attached on it.
Sofia Jude Palmejar
Inspired by the Japanese culture, the 10th designer to conquer the runway, Sofia Jude Palmejar collections somehow brought us to a tour from the land of the rising sun. The designs are somehow very risky and mysterious but very effective. What I really love the most about the collection is that, it embraces the LGBTQA community. The collections can be worn by anyone regardless of gender preference.
Watch out for the part 2.
