This past Thursday I got invited to view Los Angeles based designer, Basil's runways show at the RAW Awards. After having the opportunity to attend the RAW before, I knew I would once again be overwhelmed by the amount of talent I found. Aside from fashion they also provide an outlet for young artists to display their work within Art, Music, Dance and more! And to top things off, they always hold their events at some of the fanciest venues around like, Hollywood's famous Chinese Theater (Home of the Walk of Fame).
So after taking in the style I got the chance to chat with designer Basil backstage and learn more about his current collection. Born and raised in the Philippines, Basil tributes his vibrant designs to his tropical homeland. He mentioned how being exposed to the colorful backyard and the booming fashion industry in the Philippines, has really inspired his collection. After moving to LA a few years ago to study Fashion Design at CSULB, he plans to continue to expand his business and one day debut at Jakarta Fashion Week. To learn more about Basil please visit his website at Atelier Basil.
