#MetroStyleWatch: Designer Patricia Santos Launched An RTW Line, And Wore Her Pieces In Paris!
You heard that right, Metro ladies. Celebrity designer Patricia Santos, popularly known for her Cinderallaesque wedding gowns and romantic, tulle dresses, has officially launched her first ready-to-wear line, PS Officiel the Label.
"This collection means so much to me. I've been wanting to do this for so long, but I kept getting sick and wasn't able to do so," shared the designer on an Instagram post. Last year, the 29-year-old couturier opened up to Metro.Style about battling cancer for the second time. But ever the strong-willed woman, Patricia managed to overcome challenges and pursue her passion. "Though life has knocked me down a few times, I have always found it in myself to get back up."
Her RTW promises to deliver luxe, feminine dresses that are ethically and meaningfully created. After all, PS Officiel the Label's Instagram bio reads, "Where ethics meets aesthetics", shining the spotlight on slow, sustainable fashion. And that's exacly what Metro ladies can expect.
"Start your shift to slow fashion," captioned one of its posts. "Sustainability isn’t just a trend, it’s a way of life,"
In this segment of #MetroStyleWatch, we compiled Patricia's covetable OOTDs in Paris—donning no other than PS Officiel the Label, of course. For your dose of fashion inspiration, keep scrolling!

Patricia highlights the importance of education, encouraging people to continue learning. "We should always make it our goal to be better than what we are.
