How would you define your brand and who is it aimed at?
We are Women who design for Women, and TALA celebrates this thought. We created pieces that would honour all bodies and make women feel at ease with what what they’re wearing whilst still looking effortlessly elegant and stylish.
What advice do you have for aspiring Filipino local designers?
I think, the most pressing issue we have today, as creatives is how to design or create something that can also be sustainable. It’s important for us to not only create but be aware of the process of that creation. So I would say, create every day and give equal thought on how you can make a better impact with what you’re doing.
How much does travel influence your design?
Travel has been a key component to our imagination and design process. Both coming from an inter-racial background and having lived between Europe and Asia we’ve been very lucky to have seen and experienced many different aesthetics and I think you can see that with TALA.
Can you tell us about your brand new collection?
We really wanted to create something timeless whilst still being relevant in today’s aesthetic and I think you can see that in our first collection. It’s very classic but also modern.
Only a few pieces are available to buy for now but we cannot wait to see what will come next!
