The Pinoy does it again. Young Filipina Joanne Cordero Reyes, who created the Vicente Villarin brand (which counts Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alicia Witt, Freida Pinto, Christina Ricci, and Gossip Girl‘s Joanna Garcia as fans) has been chosen to join Carolina Herrera‘s breed of designers.

Joanne was featured in the Pinay and Poud section of Marie Claire Philippines' July 2008 issue.

This isn’t Joanne’s first bout in  designing for international fashion giants. In the past, she has interned for top New York design houses  Vivienne Tam and Jill Stuart. She was also previously a freelance designer for the Reem Acra Spring 2005 evening wear collection, a designer for the evening and luxury ready-to-wear collections of J. Mendel, and a designer for fellow Pinay Monique Lhuillier‘s Fall 2007 luxury ready to wear and Spring 2008 Bridal collections.

Joanne’s  imppecable work does not go unnoticed- under her Vicente Villarin label, she was designated one of the Top Ten New Designers by Style.com and heralded as one of the Top Five Designers to Watch by New York Magazine.

Congratulations Joanne! Bravo!

    I’ve seen articles about her in a lot of foreign publications and I do think her aesthetic is quite unique, modern, organic, romantic, and artistic rolled into one. I am sure she will go far, and will be yet another talent we can be proud of.
