This Cebu-bred fashion designer made waves for her elegant and fluid designs which earned her a prom-project with The Ramp Crossings in 2011. Just like Camille, Vania's impeccable style also won her a spot in Preview's Best Dressed List last year. She’s currently working on two retail collaborations and her Fall/Winter 2013 collection for Philippine Fashion Week.
ON BEING PART OF PEFTA
Preview is like one big family and as a PEFTA alumni, you get to be part of that family, which means continuous support and love from everyone. The editorials and various features on both Preview and Stylebible.ph paved the way for my first collaboration with The Ramp Crossings. I was an out-of-towner so I didn’t know too many people in the industry, so PEFTA really helped a lot.
LOOKING BACK: HER GREATEST LESSON
Philippine fashion is growing and we all have to do our part and help each other out for it to prosper.
LOOKING FORWARD: 2013 PLANS
Lots of love! I'm excited for my Holiday collection for Philippine Fashion Week, because that’s where I really get to design what I want with no boundaries.
PAYING IT FORWARD: TWO CENTS FOR THE NEW BATCH
You are already part of PEFTA, and that’s a great honor and accomplishment in itself! All you need to do is grow. There’s no such thing as overnight success. Hard work is still the key.
