Anne Curtis with designer Vania Romoff
I like Vania Romoff’s feminine styles and silhouettes that really flatter the female form; in fact, she’s one of the designers I considered for my wedding. However, since she designs for celebrities and high profile clients, I was intimidated; she’s a bit beyond my budget, and I’m quite sure a lot of Filipinas share the sentiment.
But, here’s fabulous news for fans of the renowned couturier: Vania Romoff brings her touch of whimsy to a new exclusive capsule collection for local clothing brand Plains & Prints.

The highly-anticipated 15-piece collection will bear the romantic signature looks and stylish flair of the young designer. Vania takes inspiration from spring as she works floral trims and intriguing ikat prints into her versatile pieces for the brand—from casual dresses to romantic blouses and bottoms.

“Plains & Prints, like me, caters to the same kind of modern woman: proud, powerful, and confident in her femininity. When designing this collection, I had imagined a vibrant, light-hearted, and beautiful woman who enjoys life. And she expresses this love and optimism for life through the way she dresses,” Vania says of her creative vision for the collection. Each of the exclusive pieces reflect Vania’s penchant for subdued drama with dainty ribbons, delicate embellishments, and flounce.

“For this collaboration, I wanted to infuse a sense of playful optimism and celebrate the Filipino woman through wonderful prints inspired by local flora and beautiful ikat prints. I took these elements and worked them into classic silhouettes like shift dresses, wrap dresses, and trousers—all staples for the working woman’s wardrobe,” she adds.

According to the owner and founder of Plains & Prints, Roxanne Ang-Farillas, “We’re very excited to invite Vania Romoff back to design an exclusive collection for us. She is considered one of today’s most sought-after local designers, and given our complementing design aesthetics, this collaboration is a perfect match!”
