The re­sult of all of th­ese is a cre­ation that is the very def­i­ni­tion of max­i­mal­ism and show-stop­ping design. The re­galia of the em­bel­lish­ments, rich­ness of fab­rics and forms is eas­ily bal­anced with the per­fect pro­por­tions and fit. Each piece is a spe­cial piece cre­ated for women who are not afraid to stand out, much like Tessa Pri­eto-Valdes who has be­come one of his big­gest sup­port­ers. “She first saw me when I com­peted for Project Run­way Philippine­s and in­stantly saw my po­ten­tial. Since then, she has been in­stru­men­tal in pro­mot­ing my work to a wider au­di­ence. She would come to my shows, be the first to buy my pieces, and in­tro­duce me to her circle of friends,” he points out. Her other muse, he men­tions, is his mother who has al­ways been an in­spi­ra­tion to him, start­ing his fas­ci­na­tion with women’s fashion.

In his lat­est col­lec­tion, he hon­ors the old masters of Re­nais­sance art. From full ball gowns to chic pantsuits and dresses, he uses dig­i­tally printed fab­rics of Re­nais­sance fres­coes and paired th­ese with del­i­cate lace, sheer, and em­bel­lish­ments. His love for art is clearly seen in the col­lec­tion, but most im­por­tantly, each piece can be a pièce de ré­sis­tance while eas­ily meld­ing into a co­he­sive col­lec­tion of a grand scale.

To­day, Cherry Sa­muya Veric flies around the world to show­case his artistry. From Asia, Africa to Eu­rope, and Amer­ica, he has gar­nered the ap­plause of the whole fashion world. It is in this jour­ney where he finds him­self most grate­ful, see­ing a brighter fu­ture for him and his ate­lier. It is in this jour­ney where he re­al­izes that he will al­ways be in search of artis­tic in­spi­ra­tion and beauty. And it is in this jour­ney where he finds the words he will forever live by: “Do not com­pro­mise your art. Be brave. Lis­ten to your heart. Fol­low your dreams.”

DO NOT COM­PRO­MISE YOUR ART. BE BRAVE LIS­TEN TO YOUR HEART.FOL­LOW YOUR DREAMS
