In the past years, Mich Dulce has built a flourishing fashion business in Manila – no small task in a country brimming with design talent but without the money or manufacturing facilities to help nurture it. Although Dulce’s fashion certainly isn’t for the meek-ostrich-feather bodies, sculptured avant garde have all been featured in her recent collections – her business has grown steadily each season. Her creations range from sculpted, couture-inspired designs her signature collection to the utterly accessible concoctions she makes for the Filipino fast-fashion retailer look new. Dulce has proven that homegrown designers can remain in Manila and still be commercially successful.
