Project Runway and Marie Claire’s creative director Nina Garcia headlined the JAG ORIGINS show for the 2013 Philippine Fashion Week at the SMX Convention Center.
The renowned fashion journalist and style icon will provide a sneak preview of JAG ORIGINS – a series of talks on fashion, marketing and creative thinking that targets the industry and art/fashion students.
As the inaugural speaker of JAG ORIGINS, Nina brings to the fore her over two decades of experience in the fashion industry, whose highlights include being fashion director at Elle magazine for 17 years, and at Marie Claire for four years.
With degrees from Boston University and Fashion Institute of Technology, Nina has written four books about style, and presently hosts Decoding Style on AOL. She also enjoys strong following on social media, with millions of supporters on her Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Tumblr accounts.
JAG also invited three of the country’s most promising designers Jerome Salaya Ang, Norman Noriega, and Jeffrey Rogador to create a special collection, which will be presented at the event to inspire budding creatives. Then, JAG ORIGINS will culminate with the launch of its Holiday 2013 collection, in a fashion show that features Ankle Cut Jeans for women and Stretch Denim for men.
