Rajo Laurel Celebrates 25th Anniversary In The Fashion Industry
Expect a lot of celebrations to mark the silver anniversary of the well-loved top designer Rajo Laurel. If he is not going to throw the party himself, several of his close friends and loyal partners will certainly host a few in his honour before his landmark year is over. Rajo recognises the value of a 25th and so, he has collaborated with friend Rocio Olbes in producing a documentary about this special year and the career that gave him many reasons to celebrate. Jason Magbanua is directing the film.
Philippine Tatler asked Rajo for any highlight of his career that the documentary will focus on and he said: “My design journey is a series of serendipitous events and having to point out a specifi c memory from the 25 years that I have been a designer is difficult. Let’s just say that I am looking forward and not backward. I have been given such a gift to do what I love to do and to have held so many precious memories whilst on my journey. For now, my mind is focused on what’s in store in the future and deeply excited about what lies ahead.”
