Favorite Song as of the Moment:
Radio by Lana Del Rey

What are your major influence or aesthetics?:
My aesthetic is Minimalism with a twist, I’m kinda like Alexander Wang and Gaultier’s Love child. Oscar Dela Renta is my God-father and Donatella is my God-Mother. Less is definitely more, but we all get that ‘I think I wanna do something bizarre’ kinda day.
What is your biggest fear?:
The fear of Rejection, I mean, who’s not scared of rejection.
What is your dream country to visit?:
South Korea, I wanna see cute Koreans and snuggle them.
What was the last dream you remember?:
It was with the guy I’m currently dating and we were running away from a swarm of bees. I can’t clearly recall why, but maybe because we were too sweet.
Do you have any Guilty Pleasures?:
Hannah Montana, I just can’t resist anything Hannah Montana. I have a Hannah Montana bag and a Hannah Montana Tumbler, and Hannah Montana DVD’s fresh from Quiapo. I dreamt of living that double life.

How did you started what you are doing:
I am a Fine Arts Major from the Far Eastern University, along my journey as an art student, I found myself meeting a lot of people from the industry and that urged me to enroll in the Fashion Institute of the Philippines who equipped me with the skills and connections I needed to pursue my couturier dreams.
Favorite Fashion Icon:
Grace Coddington. Who doesn’t love the Punk Grunge Queen?
If you will be featured in any magazine, what it would be:
Vogue Korea, just because I wanna work with Koreans and snuggle them.
What’s your most memorable fashion moment so far:
Seeing Heart Evangelista wearing my dress is my latest Fashion Nirvana.
What’s your favorite fashion city and why?:
I always believed in what Manila has to offer but the sad thing is, MNL isn’t a Fashion Capital yet. So I have to say London, my style pretty much reflects what the city has to offer.

Advice for other up and coming creative on your field:
Never doubt your skills but know when to stop believing, no one likes arrogant bitches. This industry is superficial and cut throat; you always have to look your best. Only the beautiful and talented will survive.
“Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking.” Everyone loves Miss Priestly.
Aside from what you are doing now, what else you want to do/achieve?:
I want to walk in the park with Cara Delevigne and Naomi Campbell wearing my creations.
