He appreciates the art of fashion and wholeheartedly believes that celebrating beauty can come at a very affordable price. He understands that the dresses he designs must be catered to suit his client’s personality, be it traditional, romantic, or avante-garde, he can come up with a design that will suit his clients’ taste at a price they can afford.

Jorda is one of six Ilonggo designers featured for this this year’s Indigneous Fiber Fashion Fair, an annual tourism event that aims to support and preserve artisan cooperatives while spreading the beauty of handmade, eco fashion.

Given the huge amount of design talent here in Iloilo, the annual Indigenous Fiber Fashion Fair is an excellent fashion platform for Ilonggo designers to participate in. Through this, the Provincial Government is also helping the fashion community in Iloilo, and Iloilo has a lot of people in the fashion community helping each other out.
