Conceptualizing!

Character.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE GARMENT OR FASHION ACCESSORY?

My mom's dress watch.

ANY CURRENT TRENDS THAT YOU'RE FOND OF? ANY CURRENT OBSESSIONS?

It's not exactly a trend because it has been an Italian staple, but I just purchased a beautiful pair of Tod's Gamminos. They're timeless.

HOW HAVE YOU EVOLVED AS A DESIGNER?

Learning to edit and restraining my designs. Before, I used to sketch like I was making a dress for a Disney princess. Now, I've developed a certain taste for certain design approaches.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF IN YOUR CAREER?

Expanding to Manila without knowing what to expect, except for the occasional warning from random people saying "It's tougher than you think.” I've never gotten anything overnight. I worked hard for years to get to where I am now and I'm happy I've gotten this far at 22.
