Dubai-based Filipino fashion designer Jef Albea showed his bridal collection at the House of Ikons on September 16, 2017. It was his first time to join the London Fashion Week and he was delighted to display his creations on the runway.
Albea said in a phone interview with Gulf News tabloid!: “Showcasing my bridal collection for the London Fashion Week is really a dream come true. I am privileged and proud to represent the Philippines and my atelier in Dubai, UAE.
“My collection is actually a dedication to all my clients who come from diverse cultures and backgrounds. As you see, it showcases different hues but solid in one aesthetic. Thanks to all my clients who trusted me. Although they come from different countries, they now have one common denominator. And that is Jef Albea.”
After a show in London, Albea stated he was exhausted but more excited to come back to Dubai. “I can’t wait to return to Dubai. I’ll be there on September 30. I am excited to make beautiful bridal gowns as we launch our brand in Dubai. We are looking forward to expand and create dresses for other Emirates aside from Dubai,” he said.
