ABOUT Dr. Joyce Penas Pilarsky:

Joyce has been proclaimed Grand Champion at Los Angeles Fashion Week Design Competition last October 17, 2015. Tagged as “Design Warz” by Los Angeles Fashion Week Design Competition, the event is a platform for fashion designers, makeup artists and hair stylists. Twelve artists competed in three design categories — hair design, makeup artistry and fashion design on the runway during Los Angeles Fashion Week. Joyce luckily received rave reviews from different shows she joined and she was featured in several magazines in the Philippines, USA, United Kingdom, France and Germany. Being named as the Queen of Philippine Eco-Couture, she is also proud as a model of her own creations which are very unique, one-of-a-kind fashion accessories inspired by the beauty of nature because it makes a heart smile with happiness. She aims also to promote Filipino fabrics and other Filipino indigenous materials from different regions in the Philippines (like pineapple, abacca, pearls, natural stones and other Filipino materials) at the same time will provide more jobs for creative women. Joyce believes that every woman deserves to feel beautiful and stunning; wearing her creations makes a woman more confident, fabulous and a head turner.

About IDA

A handful of designers, thinkers and entrepreneurs created the International Design Awards in 2007 as a response to the lack of recognition and celebration for smart and sustainable multidisciplinary design. The International Design Awards (IDA) exists to recognize, celebrate and promote legendary design visionaries and to uncover emerging talent in Architecture, Interior, Product, Graphic, and Fashion Design. IDA aspires to draw attention to the iconoclasm of design world wide, conceptualizing and producing great work.
