Filipina Triumphs at London Fashion Week

Inquirer.Net, Posted: Mar 17, 2010

MANILAYoung Filipina fashion designer Mich Dulce is this years winner of the International Young Creative Entrepreneur (IYCE) award for fashion at the recent London Fashion Week.

Dulce faced stiff competition from among young forerunners in the fashion industry, but her unique creativity and international outlook gave her an edge over the other short-listed candidates. Dulce will receive grant money of 5,000 pounds to be used on a collaborative project with the British Council.

As the official Philippine entry, Dulce was sent on a 10-day all expenses paid trip to the UK where she met industry professionals and toured leading organizations in the fashion industry. The UK trip culminated with her attending London Fashion Week, together with fellow contestants from Bangladesh, India, Libya, Lithuania, Russia, Sri Lanka, Syria and Turkey. It was there that she was announced the winner.

A permanent fixture in the fashion scene since 2001, Dulce has studied in the best fashion schools around the world like Central St. Martins and London School of Fashion in the United Kingdom and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. She has interned for such big names as Marjan Pejoski, Jessica Ogden, and Susan Cianciolo.

Since studying the art of hat making in 2005, Dulce has launched a flurry of delightful headpieces. All her hats are handmade, exquisitely molded, and always with a whimsical touch that makes it distinctly her own, whether its her geometric experimentation, her unusually sculpted fabric, or her unconventional use of materials. In 2009, Dulce expanded her skills by studying the art of period corsetry to complement her entry into the bridal market in the same year.
