#PRP3 airs on Sunday (8 PM) on ETC

Amor Albano

Fashion Designer, 28 years old, Laoag City

Amor started out young in the fashion business primarily to help support her family. Trying to make both ends meet for her grandmother and an ailing sibling, she was glad to play assistant and gopher to a more established designer back in her hometown in Ilocos Norte. She watched and listened, and, hoping to learn the tricks of the trade thick and fast, she practiced sewing day in and day out. This she did for the next ten years.

Today, Amor’s name hangs alongside the region’s A-list fashion designers. She’s very popular among the high society for creating stunning gowns, sultry silhouettes and exquisite details. With a northern exposure to brag about, Amor is coming to Manila to take on a bigger runway. But is she ready to face a tougher and meaner crowd?

What sets you apart from other designers? What makes you an interesting participant?

I didn’t have a formal education.

Having no experience with formal training, what is your fashion design background?

Ever since I was a child, this has always been my line of interest.

Have you joined other design competitions prior to Project Runway Philippines?

No.

Give one word that best describes you as a designer.

Beautiful.
