AFDS Fashion Ambassador – JOHN ROBERT DELA SERNA – Erjohn Dela Serna House of Designs

INTRODUCING ASEAN Fashion Designers Showcase #AFDS #new #fashionambassador, John Robert Dela Serna from Philippines.

DESIGNERS PROFILE:

Being a grandson of a community dressmaker and having relatives who are in the garments industry, John Robert Dela Serna of Erjohn Dela Serna House of Designs once dreamt of having his name and designs being worn while at the same time promoting his Cordilleran roots.

A tour de force of the fashion design industry of Nueva Ecija (Philippines), he is starting to be known for his passion and ingenious attempt to marry his signature aesthetics of texture, modern, edgy and asymmetrical designs with the use of indigenous woven fabrics from the Cordilleras (northern mountain region of the Philippines).

This bold move to introduce to the modern society the products of his roots, the local weaving communities, was not left unnoticed by the press, which won him entry to the wider arena of fashion design in the Philippines and eventually earning his spot in one of the coveted fashion design organizations in the country: the Designers Circle Philippines.

His collaboration with an international brand has indeed jumpstarted his career as in 2017, his House of Designs made noise in a New York show and also got the chance to dress up International Candidates for International Pageants, a feat he still considers his biggest break to date.

John indeed has come a long way from his humble beginning when he started his fashion design journey back in 2016. He remembers that he financed his design school expenses from his income from small design gigs. Currently, his fashion design house employs full time staff and a small squad of trusted sewers.

From a clientele of mostly friends, Erjohn Dela Serna House of Designs now caters a wide range of clients and projects like pageants, corporate, social and wedding events. He was also able to dress up personalities like Catriona Gray (Miss Universe 2018), Athisa Manalo (Miss International 2018 1st Runner Up), Angelia Ong (Miss Earth 2015), and Venus Raj (Miss Universe 2010 4th Runner Up) to name a few.

Right now, other than the Igorot and the Cordilleran weaves, his designs have expanded to include other woven fabrics that are indigenous to the Philippines such as the T’nalak of South Cotabato, the Inab’l of Ilocos and the Hablon of Iloilo. With passion and attention to detail, his designs and garments are carefully studied and made to suit your taste. No two works are identical but his identity as a creator translates to his works.

Despite these many accomplishments, he still stays within his vision for his designs that is for them to continue having relevance and style even after five or ten years have passed.

Indeed, his keen attention to detail and his vision for the local textile industry has made him arrive to what acknowledgments he enjoys today. As what one of his mentors used to say, “His eye for prints allows him to deconstruct, at the same time, convert a piece that transcends time and place.”

John Robert Dela Serna is an esteem member and fashion ambassador of the ASEAN Fashion Designer Showcase representing Philippines.

AFDS Fashion Ambassador – EKO TJANDRA -Olanye by Eko Tjandra

INTRODUCING ASEAN Fashion Designers Showcase #AFDS #new #fashionambassador, Eko Tjandra – Olanye by Eko Tjandra from Indonesia.

DESIGNER PROFILE:

Eko Tjandra is an Indonesian designer who has a deep love for Indonesia’s traditional cultural heritage. His name may not be as famous as other designer beauty pageants, but his work in the world of beauty pageants has long made achievements for Indonesia.

Born in 1982, Eko Tjandra is a native of the Bojonegoro region. When Eko was in high school, he was influenced by his classmate’s mother, who offered to teach him sewing. That was his starting point into the world of fashion design.

Before becoming a professional fashion designer, the young Eko Tjandra was a stage singer. In 2010, he and his business partner, Mas Tjandra, agreed to establish their fashion brand – Olanye by Eko Tjanda. Eko is the collection designer while Tjandra is in charge of marketing. The two men were originally friends in the TVRI singing competition and the friendship that started 8 years ago, developed into the fashion business because both Eko and Tjandra have an interest in the world of fashion.

The Olanye label was founded in 2010. This name was taken because both of them like the color orange. With the aim of creating a label named catchy, came the word transformation into “Oranye` Olanye. Eko and Tjandra founded Olanye at first not specifically for stage costumes, but for cocktail dresses. Everything changed since Olanye’s stage costume was worn by Hudson, who was then a participant in the Indonesia Looking for Talent contest.

The entry of Olanye’s stage costume design into the entertainment world then brought Eko and Tjandra a special interest in stage costumes. Eko admitted that he became increasingly interested in making stage costumes that were more unique. “When designing costumes with character I feel incredibly happy. I really prefer something decorative.” said the designer who was not satisfied enough when working on ready-to-wear clothes.

In 2013 Eko Tjandra was later introduce to the world of beauty pageants through Miss Scuba Indonesia, this is where Eko Tjandra entered the world of beauty pageants, he started making evening gowns and national costumes for the pageants.

In the Miss Scuba International 2013 event in Malaysia, Indonesia, represented by Nadhira Ulya Suryadi, made it into the top 5 and won the best national costume with the Minangkabau theme. And continued in the following year 2014 through the same event Rima Demensah won the best national costume. A tittle that Eko Tjandra won back to back. The national costume is a modification of the Tapanuli South-North Sumatra costume with the theme “Batak Mandailing”.

The Best National Costume for Miss Earth 2014 for the Asia region was presented by Anissa Ananda Nusyirwan (Miss Earth Indonesia 2014). This national costume is a modification of West Sumatra culture with the theme “The Glory Of Sparkling Minang”. Best National Costume Supermodel International 2014 was presented by Sophia Fionnita (Supermodel Indonesia 2014) with the theme “The Enchanting Princess of Borneo”.

Best National Costume Miss Eco Universe 2016 was presented by Olvah Alhamid (Miss Eco Universe Indonesia 2016 and Top 5 Puteri Indonesia 2015). This costume takes the theme of Bird of Paradise with various meanings in each element of the national costume. The headpiece symbolizes the Honai of the traditional Papuan house, the wings on the right and left are made long with a length of 1.25m. The clothes that Olvah wears are made of gold-colored materials, symbolizing Papua which is rich in natural resources. Black orchids on the right and left sides of the chest, want to introduce to the world that black orchids are the most expensive flowers and come from Papua. Tifa musical instruments are traditional instruments on the right and left hip where Papua is rich in arts and culture. Bird of Paradise in hand symbolizes the beauty of Papua, which we must protect and preserve the population.

In 2016 Eko Tjandra made evening gowns for Dikna Faradiba at Miss Tourism International, and the two of them returned to the conversation with different evening gowns with fringes or tassel motifs.

Later in 2016, Eko Tjandra dressed the Indonesian representatives in Eko Tjandra’s design with a Lampung tapis cloth motif for the Olympics.

In 2018, Eko Tjandra became the official designer for Miss Supranational 2018 – Wilda Oktaviana Situngkir who won 3rd runner-up and best supermodel.

In 2020, Eko Tjandra developed a ready collection to wear collection with a touch of traditional Indonesian fabrics and aims to develop the OLANYE by Eko brand Tjandra to the international market.

Eko Tjandra is an esteem member and fashion ambassador of the ASEAN Fashion Designer Showcase representing Indonesia.
