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 – POOJA NANIKRAM – GÜVEN

INTRODUCING ASEAN Fashion Designers Showcase #AFDS #new #fashionambassador, Pooja Nanikram from Singapore.

DESIGNERS PROFILE:

Pooja has been in the fashion scene for 11 years. She started out as a wardrobe stylist for local shows such as SuperModel Me, In Cold Blood, Diary of Amos Lee, and other TV Commercials. Her experience and journey in fashion has allowed her to work with some of the most acclaimed, accomplished, creative and influential international designers and brands such as Manish Malhotra, Tarun Tahiliani, Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla & Anita Dongre. Her involvement in the Audi Fashion Week & Fide Fashion Week has refined her skills in styling and increased her passion for fashion.

Pooja has had an affinity for fashion and design since young. To her, fashion is never about a certain trend or style that needs to be followed. Instead, it is a way of redefining and expressing oneself each time.

Her meticulous and enterprising attributes, her desire to bring fresh, unique, and innovative designs that tell a different story each time.  Pooja believes that individuality speaks fashion.

Pooja is an esteem member and fashion ambassadors of the ASEAN Fashion Designers Showcase representing Singapore.

AFDS Fashion Ambassador – LISA FITRIA – LISA FITRIA

INTRODUCING ASEAN Fashion Designers Showcase #AFDS #new #fashionambassador, Lisa Fitria – Lisa Fitria, from Indonesia.

DESIGNER PROFILE:

Lisa was born on September 9, 1978 in Semarang, central of java Indonesia. She was raised in the world of design, learning her trade from the hands of her mother who ran her own dressmaking business. Lisa began making costumes for her song and dance shows since elementary school.

She graduated from high school in 1996 and when on to college to majoring in textile design. Lisa won the scholarship from Hanseung Textile Industries and she spent the next two years learning the Korean language and textile industry in the cities of Daegu and Gumi, South of Korea. She graduated in 1998, in the midst of the Asian financial crisis which severely affected Southeast Asia, leading to Hanseung closing down its factories in Indonesia, and thus releasing Lisa from her obligation to work for the company.

She went on to work as a merchandiser for Sai Apparel Industries, another Korean garment company that played an important position in the Indonesian garment industry, based in Semarang.

After 2 years, she moved to Textile One, one of the largest textile marketing and distribution companies. Because of her passion and hard work, Lisa quickly advanced in the company and after nine years, she rose to the position of general manager of the company.

“But then, I remembered that I had always reminded myself that I have to achieve my dream when I reach 30 years,”  And at the age of 30, she resigned and started making her dream a reality.

In 2011, Lisa debuted her women’s ready-to-wear collection in a show at Jakarta Food and Fashion Festival (JFFF) at Mal Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta. Since then, Lisa has been actively presenting her collections and has participated in fashion shows both in Indonesia and abroad.
