I've got the privilege to interview Pia Gladys Perey and discussed with her her experience at LA Style Fashion Week 2013. The interview was published in Diaryo Filipino - A Filipino/Canadian Newspaper based in Alberta, Canada.

Pia Gladys Perey Wows At Style Fashion Week
by Henry G. Anima II

Despite Pia Gladys Perey’s usual busy schedule she managed to find time to discuss with me, her latest collection from Style Fashion Week in Los Angeles.

Pia Gladys Perey (PGP) is well known for her mastery in drapes. Her collection is often very feminine and very elegant. Celebrities like Grabielle Union and Angelina Jolie already wore some of her designs.

From PGP Press Release: “The collection opened with separates of armored gold and high shine black that felt like leather, this added an edge to the collection that kept it fresh and very bankable at retail. The collection moved into hues such as teal, cadet blue, pine green, and pistachio to the houses default set of neutrals in classic PGP styling.”

When you were invited again to showcase a collection on Style Fashion Week in LA, what was your initial reaction?

PGP: This is actually my third time to get invited to LA fashion week and this year, I felt that it is time to participate since I have been blessed with a lovely team.

How did the organizers (of Style Fashion Week) know about you and your designs?

PGP: I think through my presence online and in the Australian market J.

When you finally decided to join, what were the first few things that you have to consider?

PGP: Team, budget and of course the long term effect of the show to my line in terms of sales and PR.

What was your inspiration behind your collection?

PGP: Luxury and Romance.

What are the challenges, if any, that you had to face in doing and presenting your collection?

PGP: This collection’s challenge was only just really designing the collection. I was so pressed for time and I didn’t feel the inspiration until a few weeks before the launch!

How did you handle it?

PGP: Like what I always do, I hit the beach and refresh my mind

Congratulations on the standing ovation - the crowd really loved your collection. Now that the world knows the potential and greatness of the Pia Gladys Perey label, what direction are you going to take it in the future?

PGP: We are opening a store in LA (Melrose Ave) in June, along with this, we are doing very aggressive moves for sales and PR in the US market.

If people want to know more about you, and inquire your designs, how can they reach you?

PGP: People can go to our website www.piagladysperey.net
