Veteran Designers Toni De Ramos and Nica Nava, AND’s mentors helped in the preparation of the designers. Bacolod’s Finest Wedding and Events Specialist Dwight Moraña Jr., the brainchild behind the organizing of AND, says he helped in gathering the designers until they formed themselves as a group. Moraña directed the Fashion show at “The Launch”.

Designers came up with their respective designs that made a significant statement in the fashion industry; Edwin Benitez, Jes Daquila, Kathryn Gustilo King Li, Javon Dawa, John Rondain, Tia Lacson, Nica Nava, Brylie Hiponia, Rennie Braza and Adrian Colmenares.

The successful launch kicked off for yet a much bigger and bolder event on December that will showcase the designers’ collections that have imprinted their names in fashion sense and style.*
