A most promising young talent ready to take the fashion industry by storm, Mr. Veejay Floresca wastes no time in his efforts to make an impact. At the early age of 19, he was already professionally designing gowns for brides and entire entourages and has worked as a designer under Accent & Detail Apparel. He has also joined numerous competitions where his designs were noticed and applauded. Most notable of these competitions are Councours Internationale des Jeunes Createur de Mode 2005 in Paris, France where he represented the country; and the MEGA Young Designer’s Competition 2006 where he landed a spot as one of the finalists.
His most recent work was in ABS-CBN’s Pinoy Dream Academy, where his designs were worn by the Scholars in their Gala Shows and the Grand Finals Night. Veejay foresees that a modern and edgier look will be prominent this year. “It will have a very androgynous feel. A touch of romanticism but with a tougher look,” he explained. Elements of minimalism and asymmetry will also be evident, which will result in a sleeker fit. Veejay is now turning 22 years old and has recently opened his own atelier, Fashion Glory, Inc., located at 3608 Bautista St. cor. Edison St. San Isidro, Makati.
