This May, L’OFFICIEL Manila celebrates its second anniversary with an issue that departs from big-name fashion brands to highlight talented Filipino artists and artisans. VERA's founder Valerie is featured alongside some of the Philippines' most exciting homegrown labels and artists.

In her interview, Valerie talks about bringing artisanal Filipino jewelry to the global stage:

VERA in L'Officiel Manila May 2017

"I envision VERA as a platform for independent Filipino accessory designers and artisans. Social media and the internet are making it easier to be discovered, but in a vast ocean of brands, Filipino designers still need support to amplify their message and bring them closer to international customers ... It means a lot to me that we can forge a relationship between the artisan who makes the jewelry and the woman who wears it."
