How would you describe your personal style?

As cliché as this sounds, I wouldn’t say I have any definitive style. When it comes to life, I try to lead and not follow. However, I love following trends because my taste changes so often that fashion gives me a way to try new things and new personalities season to season. One season I can be totally boho-chic, and another I can be decked out in black and grunge to the max. But regardless of the trends, or even the time of year for that matter, I am the most comfortable in a great pair of skinny jeans, Adidas, and a solid black tee.

How would you describe your personal style? My personal style is a little bit of everything. I love the minimalist and classic look, but I’m also inspired by the more edgy, bold, and statement styles. I enjoy monochromatic outfits with a pop of color, I also enjoy trying out new things and mix and matching. I guess you can say my style is minimalistic with a twist. 

What is the inspiration for your looks? I get inspiration from a lot of things–the weather, my mood, a piece of clothing, other people.

Where do you like to shop, and why?  Don’t like to limit my shopping to just one particular store. By shopping at various places, it inspires my creative mind, and it also allows me to see what things are available out there. With that said, I do have some go-to stores that I check-up on regularly which are H&M, Forever21, Asos, Mango, & Zara.  I also do a lot of thrifting =) 

What are some of your favorite pieces in your closet? My favorite pieces are definitely my essentials: blazers, skinny jeans, booties, blouses. I wear them a lot. 

What does fashion mean to you? Fashion, to me, is not only a form of self-expression but it’s also a creative industry, a form of art, a part of history. Fashion allows people to create, to inspire. I believe that humans are creators and fashion is an outlet for many people to create and share. I also think fashion has always been a part of history–how people dress have changed over the years and how the emerging of different culture’s have effected and is effecting the fashion industry.

What do you think of UCOF’s mission and presence in the fashion industry? I think what UCOF has to offer is exciting. It definitely opens opportunities for students to learn and to be involved in the fashion industry. I also think it’s great that UCOF also raises funds towards humanitarian causes

City/Hometown: Manila, Philippines
Occupation: fashion blogger and artist; creator of Unwrinkling

How would you describe your personal style? Currently in transition. I used to dress very girly, but have found myself wanting to look less and less palatable of late. I’m trying to find my way into a style that better reflects the sharp edges in me—something all my pretty florals and sweet colors wasn’t really doing.

How would you describe your personal style?
That’s such a tricky question! Throughout the years, I’ve tried so many different styles that my
style is a weird blend of every single style. I guess if I could try, I would say it’s basically Pretty
and Pink meets Clueless that meets The Craft.

How would you describe your personal style?
This is always such a difficult question for me. I love and appreciate all styles, so every day I enjoy trying something different. I guess I can best describe it as vintage with a modern twist. I really enjoy going for the classic-vintage styles and also very bohemian styles, they’re both equally me!
