Rian Fernandez always had a heart for the arts. The expressive quality of his personality can best be seen through his masterworks. Perceived as a designer, he is likened to a museum filled with a thousand masterpieces; colored by joys, ripened by pain.
Together with his countless blessings, his artistry has brought him to many places. Rian studied fashion at LaSalle College of the Arts, Singapore. A celebrity fashion designer and a wedding couturier from the majestic Philippines, his ensemble was featured in Vogue Italia magazine. A piece of his garment was exhibited in Music Through Your Veins in London, England.
His artistic journey continued when he made the most talked about dress of Miss Thailand, Chalita Suansane, for Miss Universe 2016 terno fashion show. He also designed the evening gown of Miss Canada and judges, Dayanara Torres and Cynthia Bailey, during Miss Universe 2016.
In 2017, Rian designed the dress of Kriss Mincey for the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California; and in 2019, he dressed Miss Cambodia, Somnang Alyna, for the 2019 Miss Universe pageant.
Rian joined APU Fashion Week in Japan for Spring/Summer 2017 and Fall/Winter 2018. He is a designer of numerous international pageants including Miss World Nicaragua, Miss Earth, Mutya ng Pilipinas, Miss Grand Thailand 2017, and Miss Universe 2016, 2017 and 2019. He is named as one of the Best Designers of the Northern Philippines, and Outstanding Designer during Pilipinas Fashion And Style Week 2018.
To him, the world may be his stage, but there is more to just playing your role - it is doing it with heartfelt passion.
