Designer to Watch: Cen Hontomen He envisions the future of fashion to be multifunctional.

Cen’s deep-rooted passion for fashion lies in his love of ladies in beautiful clothes. Long before he graduated from the Fashion Institute of the Philippines, Cen honed his creative side at a young age by sketching women in dresses and shoes straight out of his imagination.

Below, check out the look Cen created that decsribes the future. 

AESTHETIC

“My design aesthetic favors silhouettes cut away from the body, giving more priority to comfort and ease.”

INSPIRATION

“I created this mainly based on my mood that day. Today, everyone is all for things that are quick and easy. I imagine in the future it will be faster. This garment was intended to be an all-in-one piece: a coat, jacket and dress all at once.”

MUSE

 “Someone who is confident, strong and [is] a leader. I would love to see Iris Apfel wearing this piece.”
