Popular Filipino swimwear designer Domz Ramos has added another feather to his cap after several shows in the United States. From Houston, Texas to New York, the designer bowed out after presenting his 25-piece La Corazon collection to the delight of Filipino audiences.
The designer is known to many Filipino pageant fans as a quick-witted and lively humorous swimsuit designer for the Binibining Pilipinas pageant. He designs swimsuits for the most prestigious national competition since 2016 as well as for a multitude of regional competitions in the country. And after outfitting hundreds of wannabes and pageant queens, he’s now ready to expand his brand beyond swimwear.
“I’m so happy because NYFW is every designer’s dream,” Domz said, moments after the prestigious fashion event.
Proud Taguigueno, Domz wanted his love for all things Filipino to reflect in this collection. Her La Corazon collection was inspired by former President Corazon Aquino and included outfits ranging from dazzling swimwear designs to sweet children’s tailoring to pretty designs for ceremonies.
The collection was divided into several sections, including the diva-esque swimsuit section adorned in black and gold paired with Valkyrie-appropriate feathered headpieces, as well as the yellow Gumamela section which exploded in tulle and embroidery. floral. He ended the show with a return to the traditional Filipiniana and a finale of a Filipiniana Muslim-inspired wedding dress.
Even his choice of music stayed true to his roots. He used a Philippine Madrigal Singers rendition of Levi Celerio’s classic “Ang Pipit.”
His wide range of clothing is as diverse as the people he says he wants to dress. Domz did not go the usual route of castings and this was reflected in his choice of different models – so inclusive that he selected models with Down syndrome, models of different race, transgender models, as well as women from different ages. Domz makes no distinction with who wears its clothes. Instead, he prefers people to feel good wearing his designs.
Thanks to her manager Mary Ann Santiano and with the help of producer Zim Lovern, Domz was able to present her collection during the recent New York Fashion Week… a far cry from her humble beginnings as a designer in Taguig.
