Life in VR Recap (my time working at Vania Romoff Inc.)

life in VR recap

Disclaimer: long post ahead.

I never talk about my day job; I guess I’m just a private-person like that. But since August 2015, I’ve been working at Vania Romoff Inc. which ended this week.

And before you ask: No, there is no vacancy at Vania Romoff Inc.! I already found and trained a perfectly capable replacement to take over my duties. But if you are interested in applying, you can send your resume to info@vaniaromoff.ph so that you can get an email if in case something opens up.

Creature Comfort – Preview Magazine October 2015

PREVIEW_1

When Loris asked me to make an outfit inspired by “Nomadic Upholstery” earlier this year, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted a huge hood and something that showed that alot of effort and love went into the garment. Plus (faux) FUR FUR FURRRRRR.

This hooded vest/top/whatever definitely embodies my personality at best.

I was ecstatic to see that they used it more than once for the feature (that close up shot!!!). I had initially planned to create a collection based on this piece but of course, the plans have changed. Now I have something else planned and I can’t wait to share it with all of you!

Now I just have to start it.

But until then, stare at these photos, comment on my posts (tell me what you think!) and check out my other stuff. I truly appreciate any signs of human interaction so please feel free to leave a message! 🙂

I am so humbled to be a part of this group of inspiring and talented fashion creatives from SoFA. It’s odd to see my actual face on a glossy magazine page. I don’t know if I’ll ever get this opportunity again but if ever there is a next time, I’ll probably skip the heels and wear something more comfortable (a.k.a. more me).

First ever Mega Magazine Editorial – September 2015

MEGA 1

When I was first contacted by Nicole Ramos, a former SoFA student and currently a Stylist for Mega Magazine, I felt like I hit the jackpot. Mega Magazine is one of the top fashion magazines in the Philippines and I couldn’t help but get giddy by the fact that my designs would be a part of their big fashion issue! Everyone knows that the most important issue is September; all the publications give their all and lucky for me, I was going to be a part of it.

This was the first time that my pieces showed up more than once in an editorial/feature so you wouldn’t believe how excited I was when I finally got my hands on a copy last month! I love the fact that Mega went on location and brought my humble designs and shot it with this gorgeous backdrop.

I shared these photos on my personal Facebook account also and got a message from my best friend, Timmy which honestly, sums up what I had wanted for my collection.

Can I just say, and I’m not being biased, but your collection/designs are so simple but so versatile. I just thought of it after seeing them in different sets.

Versatile, honest and inspired: pretty much sums up what I envisioned for the collection and how I see myself. Hopefully, I get more opportunities to show more of my work and create even more.

Jasmine Curtis-Smith for Megastyle.ph

Hello all! September has been really good to me. I’ve been doing alot of things such as going back to the gym (ouch) and working full time for local designer, Vania Romoff. September is also the month of features! So a couple of months back, a stylist from Mega Magazine asked to pull out some of my clothes for two shoots; one for Mega Magazine and one for the Megastyle.ph (online counterpart of Mega Mag) cover story featuring Jasmine Curtis-Smith. They featured my all time favorite oversized fluffy white sweater.
