Founder, Mia Arcenas Atelier
“Exotic, leggy fashion and accessories” are some of the words that spring to mind when discussing Mia Arcenas, a designer who hails from Cebu. She graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Apparel Manufacturing Management from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in LA and just opened her second atelier in Manila (Cebu being the first). She stocks handmade luxury resort-wear and fashion accessories, which emphasizes Filipino craftsmanship. She has been able to share her success by collaborating with fellow philanthropic Gen T lister, Alex Eduque, for the benefit of the children of MovEd Foundation. She has also exhibited at two exclusive international shows: Première Classe and Maison & Objet in September 2016 in Paris.
