What’s more, there’s actually 2 categories: Soft OR Tailored. Which is good so that people can do their own forte and they would have to compete with the “same” kind of thing.

All you have to do is submit a dress prototype of your design together with an application form which is downladable from the Ensembles Facebook Page. Contest starts on April 1 and will end on May 31, 2014.

All of the submitted entries will be uploaded to Ensembles’s Facebook Fanpage for voting.

Ensembles presents Vania Romoff for Holiday 2013

First question that I had in mind was… who is Vania Romoff? Vania is a 24-year-old Cebuana who grew up around fashion as her grandmother is the first couturier in Cebu. Furthermore, here mom is a garment manufacturer and her brother is a designer as well. She studied Business Entrepreneurship at the Center for International Education in Cebu and developed her fashion skills as the School of Fashion and the Arts (SOFA).

Vania RomoffFollow her at Twitter.

This time around, she was chosen by Ensembles to collaborate with them. For this collection, she said that she considered 2 things. First, the pieces should be wearable and relatable and secondly, her designs should stay true to her design aesthetic while still reflecting the brand’s persona.

So this, Holiday Season, make sure that you pick one of her stuff from any Ensembles store.

For me, the best one in this collection is this dress with the swan print. It really, really looks great.

When asked if she had a hard time coming up with a concept, Pamela, the only one who didn’t take up a design course, said, “Not quite. I just thought of a concept that would fit a stylish woman in a corporate world and something that is understated yet elegant and would add a stylish twist to a normal office outfit.”
