These are the words Ulysses King use to describe his collections. One of the budding fashion designers in the metro, Ulysses is focused more on men's wear and has vowed to make the face of men's fashion more posh and stylish giving young professionals a wonderful time at work and feeling good about how they look & feel trendy at the same time.
Ever since his first invite at the Fashion Week last May 2010 everything is getting to its proper places for Uly. Considered as one of the "New Generation" designers in the locale, he wowed audiences then with his wonderfully crafted designs for men. Edgy, modern and interesting are some of the praises he has received and is continuously receiving up to now. And what else would make you admire Uly? Not only is he a true great designer and a passionate artist, he is also a professional and a business oriented person. He is a Certified Public Accountant and an alumnus of Ateneo Graduate School of Business where he completed his Master in Business Administration. Wow!
And aside from that he co-founded "Bobon", a designer shop , collaborated by the most sought after designers in the country such as Puey Quinones, Eric delos Santos, Roland Lirio, Yako Reyes and Estien Quijano. The shop is located at the 4F of The Podium in Ortigas City.
In his own words: “Fashion is an instrument that I embrace on my quest to perfection and beauty. There is a science that you have to follow for guidance but one thing that may not be written in stone is my inclination to art and the passion to bring out the best in every idea. It’s so dynamic that you have to keep abreast with the changing trends but the foundation of it emanates from your values, beliefs and creative thoughts”
Truly a class act and a someone who is very good at his craft. See more of him at the Philippine Fashion Week today at the SM Mall of Asia Main Atrium at 6:30 PM.
