An Exclusive Tour Of Top Designer Vania Romoff's New Boutique!
Feminine, romantic, and modern—three words that perfectly describe local fashion designer Vania Romoff's signature aesthetic.
Retaining the namesake brand she passionately established through the years, the Cebu-born couturier recently opened her first ever retail store, basing its look and interiors on her distinct, sophisticated style. Studio Vania Romoff is located in the new wing of Power Plant Mall, making it easier for fashion enthusiasts in Metro Manila to get their hands on the designer's signature ready-to-wear pieces.
In an exclusive tour with Metro.Style, Vania Romoff shares her inspiration behind everything you will see inside her gorgeous new boutique. Keep scrolling for your dose of fashion fix!
A gorgeous faux fire place welcomes guests entering the room. Similar to the designer's creations, each corner of her store is equally dainty—from the custom mirror down to the elegant flooring. According to Vania, everything in this store is custom-made and hand-picked by her and Vito Selma, another creative from Cebu and a top furniture and industrial designer in the country.
Keeping up with today's trends, Vania and Vito turned Studio Vania Romoff into a very Instagram-worthy spot. The lighting makes the store perfect for photos—so yes, you can don a designer dress, twirl around in it, and have your double tap-worthy photos taken! Even the fitting room is designed to be Instagrammable—Vania's monogram "VR" is intentionally reversed on the wall, making it a perfect detail for mirror OOTDs. Imagine capturing a fashion moment in the room below!
On the wall above the fur chair hangs a stunning photo from Vania's most recent lookbook. This Shaira Luna shot was taken from Studio Vania Romoff's Spring/Summer 2018 collection. We can't wait to see a highlight of her next collection displayed here this fall!
The walls are also toned down in neutrals to give way for all the colors in the racks. Currently, Vania's High Summer 2018 collection is on display. It has a lot of linens perfect for summer!
There are also a lot of flower pieces from the collection. One item we're in love with is the dress that Dominique Cojuangco dons on Metro magazine's May 2018 cover!
May brings in even more beautiful surprises as we present our special cover with @gretchenbarretto and daughter @dominique for @metromagph’s mother’s day offering! We celebrate their unique bond in a fashion reverie in the season’s spring florals, as the two share their beautiful relationship and their love for each other. #metrolovesgretchendominique #metromay2018 Photography by @cyruspanganiban Creative direction by @dominique and @theonlychookiecruz Styling by @rainierdagala (Gretchen) and @myrrhlaoto (Dominique) Gretchen's hair and makeup by Dennis Santos Dominique's makeup by @owensarmiento and hair by @hairbymycke Production design by @gideonhermosa On Gretchen: CH Carolina Herrera, on Dominique: @studiovaniaromoff Shot on location at @lascasasqc Special thanks to Gerard Gotladera of @wtalentmanagement, @theheartyonion and @storiesbylilypad
Three of Vania's current favorites are the Dalia top—a spaghetti strap with intricate florals embedded at its hem, the denim dresses, and of course, their ribbon tops! "We love ribbons here—that's always been a trademark for our brand!" quips the young designer.
