Hot London young fashion designer Jasper Garvida’s Ilocano lineage

When Elizabeth Hurley, Cheryl Cole and Sophie Dahl wear young fashion designer Jasper Garvida’s designs, it means he’s made.

When I saw him in the news, I thought he might be Ilocano. Garvidas are well-known in Bangui, Ilocos Norte; so I did a little research and here’s what I found.

Jasper Garvida was born to Ilocano parents. His father, Modesto Agullana Garvida, hails from Bangui and his mother Liza of the Laureta and Marcos clan is from Solsona and Laoag.

It is said that UK’s next biggest fashion designer according to Kelly Osbourne has remained humble in spite of his successes. Check out his fabulous site. View his Spring/Summer 2010 collection.

Warm wishes to you, Jasper.

  1. Hey Tina, I saw the “Garvida” in the title and it caught my attention. My middle name is Garvida, and we’re also from Bangui, so I showed this post to my dad. It feels good to know that someone from Bangui has made it big in this industry in the international scene =)
