There are so many fashionable clothes out there, but only few are award-winning. I am happy that two of the talented young designers that my partner Geo and I have come to love have won their respective design competitions recently, and that is certainly something to be proud of.

A few weeks back, ROLAND ALZATÉ has done it again by bagging another design title - this time he took the Grand Prize at the Look of Style Awards presented by Philippine Daily Inquirer and Look Magazine, and sponsored by the British Council. Roland bested 10 other finalists who competed in a fashion show featuring eco-chic-inspired looks, and will be on his road to high fashion as he flies to Central Saint Martins in London very soon. It can be remembered that Alzaté also won last year's Weaving the Future: A Social Design Competition organized by FDCP. Award-winning ka talaga Rense!

Eco Chic. Here are the winning entries of Rense using eco-friendly materials.

Winner takes all. Rense being overtowered by his muses while wearing his winning pieces.

On the other hand, the fast-rising JEFFREY ROGADOR made our country proud by winning Jeansations 2 Best Jeans Award that was held in Monte Carlo, Monaco. His jean designs bested other 22 international multiple entries. A few weeks back, we tapped Jpoi to do the chic menswear clothes used in our Milanos fashion segment during the most recent Philippine Fashion Week. So proud of you sis!

To Rense and Jpoi, congratulations! I should pullout from both of you very soon, hihihi! Keep up the awesome work. :-)
