Designer Focus: Louis Pangilinan And Anthony Ramirez

What better way to celebrate pride but to put a light on one of our own: the Philippines’ true pride and joy, the god-level tailors of fashion.

June is the month of Pride. It’s the time of the year when you can be truly proud of who you are, embrace your roots and not be ashamed of where you came from. At STAIL.PH, it is our greatest advocacy to embrace talents regardless of gender identity, color, race, physicality, and creed. STAIL.PH is created to exhibit great style, beauty, and deviance.

What better way to celebrate pride but to put a light on one of our own: the Philippines’ true pride and joy, the god-level tailors of fashion.

Louis Pangilinan is the pride of Laguna. “The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old but building the new,” he wrote on his Facebook post, quoting the great Greek philosopher Socrates. His rise to the top was such a tedious and tiring process, but I couldn’t be happier with all that he’s accomplished through the years.

And look at all this glory! We will forever be grateful to him.

Anthony Ramirez is the pride and staple of Manila Fashion Festival, famed for his stellar cutout designs and draping technique.

When asked about his inspiration for his modern Maria Clara creation, he said, “The delicateness of femininity that deviates with the permissive modern society was the main inspiration for creating the dress. It captures a genuine, self-assured queen.”


On the technicalities of his creation, he said, “It is a two-piece ensemble consisting of a corset top with an exquisite draping in textured silk gazar and a voluminous tulle serpentina skirt with a ribbon accent. The whole garment took two weeks to finish due to its intricacy and my persistent effort at flawlessness.”

Ultimately, Anthony said that his greatest motivation as a designer is “the fulfillment of a dream that continues to prosper through dedication and communicating with clients. My goal is to bring out their individuality through sophisticated creations that empower every woman.”
