These days, Vania Romoff is the darling of Philippine Fashion. Her designs are worn by the cream of the crop, and are seen on everyone from A-list celebrities to the society set. She also recently launched her own e-commerce website—and if that doesn’t show demand, we don’t know what does. Yet, what makes Vania so particularly enamored by her clients is her ability to dress the feminine form and make it more beautiful than it already is. Highlighted by a ladylike yet forward thinking aesthetic, her designs are constantly sophisticated with an undeniable sense of ease. “That’s a very difficult question. I get asked that a lot,” she says when talking about her inspirations. “It changes from time to time but my point of view and aesthetic remain the same. I make clothes to make women feel beautiful. That’s always the bottom line for me.” Vania’s brand of sweet isn’t in the saccharine, but rather in the subtle showing of skin and the silhouettes that flaunt a woman’s curves. Her success lies in the fact that she understands what women want, and is also not afraid to bring back a sense of softness in today’s power dressing.
