Daryl Amar Highlights Hablon Moda
From 2008, the annual Indigenous Fiber Fashion Fair did not fail to present talented young Ilonggo designers. The Event Center in SM City Iloilo is crowded with supporters, buyers, and designers. The event is designed to give those local talents a platform, upon which they can build. It gave them an opportunity to go up or participate in major local fashion shows and show Ilonggos what they can do. The event had done it eight times and young fashion designer Daryl Campanero Amar is the latest.
The Leon, Iloilo born fashion designer graduated with a degree in Bachelor of Science major in Fashion and Apparel Technology at ISAT University in 2014 and with Merit Honor.
As a student, young designer Amar had been joining school competitions and had won awards such as Best Designer-Craftsman Fashion Runway 2013; 1st Runner-Up in Modern Filipiniana 2010. His most memorable was when he won as Runner-up for the Robinson's Design Lab in 2014.
After that, invitations to events started pouring in, among them is the Masskara Fashion Week, Sinulog Fashion Week, Robinson's Campus Fashionista (dress-up modeling competition) Green Fashion Runway and Aesthetic Runway Guest Designer for a project at ISAT-University.
He is known for his with timeless, sophisticated and incredibly well-made women’s wear. His designs emphasize classic forms, chic details, color blocking and clean-cut necklines, ensuring the pieces are far from average. At times, his designs are filled with a medley of experiments, ranging from architectural, ornately patterned tunics to sexy, smart cocktail dresses with geometric cut-outs, mesh details and asymmetrical hems.
Amar will have his debut for the annual Indigenous Fiber Fashion Fair with a solo show entitled Hablon Moda on the opening day on August 3, 2016 at 6 p.m., Event Center, SM City Iloilo. The designer will be using hablon textiles woven from Barangay Indag-an in Miagao, Iloilo.
