Teen Vogue recently gave a shout-out to seven Filipino designers that are taking over the fashion world, and we are living. The list included Rajo Laurel, Rosenthal Tee, Carl Jan Cruz, Mich Dulce, Seph Bagasao, Monique Lhuillier, and Furne One.
The article highlighted how each designer created clothes that local and international celebrities have worn on the red carpet. For example, Leighton Meester wore a Mich Dulce hat on Gossip Girl and Furne One collaborated with Beyoncé in the past.
It also mentioned how their designs serve several purposes—from Carl Jan Cruz’s modern take on pambahay to lavish Monique Lhuillier gowns. “The range of designs within the Filipino community is unlike any other—and what makes them extra special is the subtle nod each artist makes to their culture,” Teen Vogue notes.
It’s great that Filipino are finally getting the international recognition that they deserve. Maybe now we’ll see more of their designs at red carpet and fashion week events.
