Many viewers, mostly steadfast #DonBelle fans, would frame Donny as the "perfect man" (a "walking green flag" as Gen Z likes to put it). Though, it takes more than just sweet internet interactions and fictional characters for one to be called an ideal gentleman in today's world.

Perhaps someone who does have firsthand intel on the 24-year-old's poise and attitude is his stylist John Lozano. For two years now, John has been in charge of making sure Donny looks all spiffy for his red carpet premieres, talk show guestings, and whatever else is in the itinerary of a dynamic Gen Z leading man.

John Lozano on Being Donny Pangilinan's Fashion Stylist

Please describe the first time you met.

"Donny and I met way before I was hired as his stylist. I also style his uncle, Gary Valenciano, so we've met in the past at some point."

How did you end up working together? How long have you been working together since?

"I was referred to him by tita Angeli Valenciano, wife of sir Gary, about two years ago."

How would you describe Donny as a client?

"Donny is a dream client. He knows what he wants but also gives you the freedom to play. That's very important for a stylist, to be allowed to execute their vision. But more importantly, Donny is a friend more than just a client, and I think that makes our working relationship better."

How has working with Donny impacted your career as a fashion stylist?

"I guess it has made me a lot busier, but in a good way. He currently has projects left and right, so [our] schedule is pretty hectic. It has [also] opened my horizons to his generation, and that's good, 'cause the last thing any stylist wants [to be] is to be left behind."

As his fashion stylist, what can you say about his personal style/aesthetic?

"Donny is a very classic guy. He likes to keep things simple, easy, and timeless. He knows what he wants [and] what works for him, and that's very rare for guys his age. It's so easy to get caught up with trends and [to] try everything, but he is able to really define who he is in terms of style."

Has your personal relationship developed since you first met? How would you describe Donny as a friend?

"I guess we clicked [right] off the bat, otherwise, I wouldn't still be his stylist. I mean that literally since [during] our first ever job together, we immediately found common ground and started chatting away. Donny is very easy to be with; he's warm and fun at the same time so it didn't take long for us to bond. He always made me feel welcome and appreciated, [and] that shows how good of a friend and a person he is."

What’s your most unforgettable moment working with Donny?

"We have a lot of fun moments at work. But if there's a moment I wouldn't forget, it would be something we did outside of work. We looked at some properties outside of Manila and bonded in the process (we even took a 30-minute hike to one of them). It's quite memorable because we managed to do that [even] in the midst of our crazy schedules, [proving] that there's more to us than just work."

What’s something interesting about Donny that his fans don’t know?

"I'm sure they know everything already. But one thing I'm in awe of is the fact that, at an early age, Donny is very mature especially when it comes to his finances. He knows how to invest his earnings and that's very rare for guys his age. In fact, it has also inspired me to do the same."
