Vin Orias has already made a jump start, if not an established name, in the local fashion scene. It came as a bit of a surprise for me when it first came to my knowledge that he is a contestant in the season four of Project Runway Philippines, I thought “Isn’t he already a really really good designer?”
This for the fact that I’ve already seen some of his amazing looks specifically on Pilipinas Men’s Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2014 and its special edition Pilipinas Men’s Fashion Week ALL-IN last September 2014. I can very well remember those sharp, well-tailored and contemporary suits on the runway, his collection was among, to be honest, the stand-out and a personal favorite during that season. His participation in Project Runway Philippines explains why he’s missing from Pilipinas Men’s Fashion Week S/S 2015 show last January.
His first challenge look for Project Runway Philippines clearly shows his exceptional menswear discipline and at the same time an interesting creativity that pushes the envelope.
His broad background in fashion, not just in designing, but from styling, merchandising, production and packaging makes him a huge contender in this season of Project Runway Philippines.
Do you think he got what it takes to be the next global Filipino designer who’ll conquer international fashion?
