The designs of Jover
This Hotel and Restaurant Management student bested two others when she became the grand winner in the Robinsons Design Lab Grand Finals held last July 4.
Her collection was inspired by water. During dawn, water comes in the shades of blue, plum and pink, according to Jover.
Design of Alfred
She received P10,000 cash, a junior membership in the Designers Guild of Iloilo City, one year membership in Winners Gym and some packages from Karat World.
Design of Paulo
The two contenders were Paulo Benito Tugbang and Alfred Jor-El Espina, whose collections were extraordinary as well.
They were judged by Manila-based and award-winning designers Tina Daniac (Concours Internationale des Jeune Creature du Mode) and Gian Romano (Mega's Young Designer of the Year, London and New York trained), Iloilo's bad boy of fashion Bo Parcon (one of Metropolitan Museum's Terno designer awardee), Robinsons Land Corporation Head Nilo Mapa and Mega's fashion editor Patrick Ty.
