Filipino Designers

As the 29th member of Vogue, let’s take a look at some Filipino designers! 

Meet Caroline Mangosing, a Filipino designer that is putting her culture at the forefront of her work! Mangosing held multiple fashion internships, hoping to break into the industry. She tells Nylon, “After a while, I stopped pursuing fashion. Instead, I pursued being Filipino,” she says. In 2009, fashion seemed to make its way back to her, and she began to build the early stages of Vinta Gallery, which eventually launched in 2016. Now, Mangosing’s brand serves as a beacon of pride by turning to the Philippines’ classic attire for inspiration. Merging her love for both fashion and Filipino culture.

Another Filipino designer is Annette Lasala Spillane, who taps into her heritage with gold. She tells Nylon that “Filipinas love gold, but we especially love pearls.” What carries a more incredible tie to Filipino heritage are the materials used and the artisans behind each item, and all the material is sourced from the Philippines.

We are elated that the Philippines is becoming the 29 edition of Vogue, and we hope that it will open the door for other Southeast Asia countries to be included. It will be exciting to explore their style.  See you in September!
