Rafa is a BS Clothing Technology student from the University of the Philippines. Having ethical and sustainable fashion often discussed in class encouraged her to make lifestyle changes and reevaluate what kind of designer she wants to be. Living in a developing country has also made her realize the gaps and challenges filipinos face with regards to sustainability.
She hopes to contribute to the reformation of both the global and Philippine textile and garment industries. She’s looking forward to work with FTA and help turn the concept of sustainable fashion into reality that’s more accessible and relatable.
