Regarded as an actress, a businesswoman, and an advocate for women and children, Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin can now add the tag “designer” under her belt.
Recently, the 33-year-old actress, in collaboration with the cosmetics and fashion brand that she has long been endorsing, launched a project called Avon Fashions X Angel Locsin, which is a collection of bags that Angel helped design.
Angel expressed her enthusiasm for the project as she gets another chance to apply what she learned from the short fashion design course she took at St. Martin’s School of Arts in London back in 2007.
“Akala ko di ko siya magagamit kasi hindi talaga ako ganon, hindi nga ako nagsa-shopping masyado.
“Pero awa ng Diyos, napakinabangan ko naman ang pinag-aralan ko don and nagawa ko yung mga sketches, nagamit ko yung pinag-aralan ko,” she explained at the launch held in Taguig City last September 27.
However, this was not the first time Angel applied her education in fashion design.
Previously, she launched a sports apparel line, which did not come as a surprise as Angel has always been known for being athletic.
“Before, nag-try kaming mag-launch ng sports apparel. Nasa SM store siya before, pero ngayon wala na. Hindi na existing.”
There was reluctance in Angel’s voice when she was asked if she plans to take designing more seriously.
“Siguro sa clothes, hindi talaga ko maano, e… [Mas sa] mga practical stuff siguro, like bags. Mahilig kasi ako sa organized bags talaga.”
In the meantime, Angel is now focused on her upcoming ABS-CBN prime time teleserye, The General’s Daughter, which also stars Maricel Soriano, Janice de Belen, Eula Valdez, Ryza Cenon, and Paulo Avelino.
She divulged that she also plans to make another movie under Star Cinema right after her next teleserye project.
