This Filipino designer once shared that she went into the darkest place of her life. Later on, she realized that she “wants to shine even in the darkness”. She learned to “toughen up and believe more” in herself. As a result, her bridal gowns are being featured in prestigious publications including PH Tatler, Teen Vogue, and Lifestyle Asia today.
Soleil Igancio (@choleil)
Ever since Ignacio was a student, she knew what she’d become: a fashion illustrator and an artist. Through her passionate soul and perseverance, she became her own boss. She’s currently receiving collaborations with big retail stores like Sfera and Forever 21.
Heart Evangelista (@iamhearte)
A wise man once said that you can’t please everybody, and actress turned singer and artist Evangelista knows that. Despite criticism, she was able to climb the ladder to success and satisfaction. Today, she’s working with her favorite luxury brands Hermes and Sequoia Paris.
Kim Cam Jones (@kimcamjones)
For someone who started working as a bank teller, Kim Jones proves that hard work pays off. From having odd jobs to collaborating with Louis Vuitton and Dior, she’s the epitome of a career woman.
Mich Dulce (@michdulce)
Dulce is recognized internationally, yet she never forgets where she came from. She usually promotes the local artisans behind her handmade hats. These playful hats were worn by Leighton Meester in the hit series Gossip Girl and by famous singer Lady Gaga.
