It was only a dream a few months ago, 4 months to be exact. I knew that I wanted to do two things: 1) help aspiring fashion designers make their own collections and build their own brands and 2) help build a name for the Philippines in terms of fashion. I also knew that I did not have the skills to teach designers how to create fabulous clothing (they are even more knowledgeable in this aspect), but I knew that my experience in marketing and business will help these designers greatly in building their own brands. With all these things in mind, my partner and I started Hot Young Designers with Fashion Face Off as the main model behind the brand.

Fashion Face Off is in its first year. It’s a competition among 5 designers, who are starting fresh in the Philippine Fashion industry. They are to create 3 collections in a span of one year, ending this year in June 2012. The winner will be the designer that earns the most revenue. He or she will be awarded Php 100,000 worth of prizes.
