But why are we getting all excited about this??
Robin Tomas studied in Parson's School of Design, interned under Anna Sui and Valentino AND WON the Supima Design Competition award for the best Reinvention of the T-Shirt". His winning t-shirt design was produced and launched in Bloomingdales’ 59th street store in March 2011.
But why Robert Tomas?
"Robin Tomas has a fresh, well-cultivated and very wearable aesthetic. It goes in sync with Penshoppe's sophisticated casual message," Alex Mendoza, Penshoppe Brand Director. And also the Supima T-shirt Design Contest, also known as the contest of emerging designers, brings Tomas one step closer to being a top-notch international designer that we can all be proud of.
This step puts Penshoppe closer to its goal of bringing the brand in the international market having established itself in the local scene for 25 years already. It continues the thread of being global. First they started out with a NYC actor, Ed Westwick as their endorser, now they are tying up with NYC based designer Robin Tomas, cannot wait for what is yet up there sleeves that would wow the Filipino market.
Let us show our support and be proud!
