Fashion and Millinery Collection inspired by memory and nostalgia of growing up in the Philippines

Now is the time to celebrate the Diversity of Culture. In this day and age we have been torn apart by different social, political and ethical issues all over the world. It is a pity to start being selfish about each others’ cultures especially that people are more intertwined now with the technology, social media and travel. But I am not an activist, I am an artist, I am a fashion designer. I am not political. But I feel sad to see how

cultural exchange is crumbling that stimulated me into making this yet another colorful fashion & millinery

collection.
My Spring-Summer 2019 Collection, “Pinoy Pop Life” is yet another autobiographical excerpt of my life growing up in the bustling City of (Metro) Manila where I was born and raised. Over the years that I had been privileged to represent my country in various fashion occasion, personal travels and research I have learned to appreciate the colorful hodgepodge of Filipino Culture that I represent. I am a Filipina. The smile in my face that lights up any room and that joyful energy I bring in, it is because, I am a Filipina.
I grew up with the guilty pleasure of sneaking some servings of “Dirty Ice Creams” on hot Manila afternoons. I grew up feeling the pink petals rains of Bougainvillea Flowers over the urban streets of Manila. I grew up taking curious interest over Taka Horse Paper Mache Toys which I would look forward to during provincial town fiestas. I wanted to join the Girl Scouts of the Philippines wanting to wear their cool uniforms not knowing I would often be soiled with outdoor camping activities. Filipiniana Day in school would always be a fashion challenge trying to make Filipiniana look more hip than everyone. Even back then, I must say that I already have the knack for fashion in very odd ways.
These are all personal memories that I draw inspirations from, celebrating the unique nostalgia of our different backgrounds, different descends but not exclusive alone to mine. I am making this collection with a big heart of sharing my beautiful culture in the form of fashion. I want to share the undeniably show-stopping beauty of the Philippines. This time around, I want to present both the nostalgic essence of growing up in the Philippines and at the same time moving forward towards promoting the unique hodgepodge of Filipino Pop Culture that has yet to be discovered. More often than not, Filipiniana Clothing would often feel too traditional and old that the younger generation may feel disjointed with the culture. I would like to exhibit a fresh creative perspective to the Filipiniana Clothing that hopefully, someday soon wearing Filipiniana would not be just limited to formal occasions and national holidays... But be appreciated as an integral part of the daily street fashion of the youth not only for Filipinos but open to be appreciated by the whole world. This is my long term as a Filipino Creative, to stimulate the appreciation of Filipino Culture not only to the global audience, but more so the Filipino Youth all over the world.

Now is the time to celebrate diversity as a Filipino, despite different regional origins,

roots and traditions... This collection is meant to celebrate that despite the internal diversity, each culture can be appreciated and celebrated by the world and also worn by every woman who

wants to feel the spirit of the good old jolly Pinoy Pop Life. Let me shout out to the world that despite the hardships of life, Filipinos are one of the happiest and warmest people you will meet in
the world.


Christian Louboutin launched “Manilacaba Multi-Pattern Tote Bag” using Philippine made local

materials and quickly sold out. How about that? How about seeing a

whole range of fashion collection proudly made by a Filipina fully charged

up by the festive Filipino Culture?
