Fashion followers in the Filipino community are tickled pink in anticipation of seeing the work of their favorite Filipino designers during this weekend’s 69th Golden Globe Awards. Monique Lhuillier, a sought-after designer in A-list couture, dressed up Mandy Moore and Catherine Zeta-Jones for last year’s awards gala. Fashion watchers are on edge to see what styles Lhuillier will dish out this year and more importantly, who her muse(s) will be.
Another Filipino designer who wowed with his fresh creations last year is Oliver Tolentino. With a steadily growing following among members of young Hollywood, Tolentino awed fashionistas with a completely sequined creation worn by Glee star Amber Riley. During a pre-Golden Globes event earlier this month, actress Sophia Bush was seen in a cream Tolentino short dress made of pineapple fiber. Tolentino has been showcasing original creations that raise awareness about one of his deep personal passions: Sustainable Design.
