“House of Laurel’s Davao trunk show”
In a Preview magazine interview, Rajo describes his couture line as “made-to-order couture where each piece is referred to as a ‘mission’ dress designed to create a lasting impression” while he considers his off-the-rack line as “Designer Ready-to-Wear”.
A winner of several national and international awards including FashionAsia AFMA China’s Asian Top Fashion Designer of the Year (Pret-A-Porter Category) in 2010, Rajo was once a judge on the TV hit show Project Runway Philippines.
In contrast to the previous spring/summer 2016 collection, The Monast, which had a clean and minimalist vibe, the Magpie Memphis colllection is more playful with its exuberant design and color. “The calm vibe has become busy. Yet, both collections share common denominators with their well-balanced scale and genre”, details the House of Laurel in its press release. Aside from women’s clothes and accessories, the trunks show also offered something exciting for the men and kids with the Rajoman and Rajito line.
