Tina Ocampo for Celestina
Growing up in Masbate city, designer Tina Ocampo, finds the Philippines a place where old artisans long to pass on their crafts to the next generations. It is where she found shells to play with as a child, and the people, forest, sea and sun continue to inspire her. With an abundance of creative artisans, Tina learned age-old techniques of Filipino crafts. Every accessory she creates features elements she is surrounded by. At the end of the 1980s, Tina and her partner created the luxury brand Celestina. “People around the world see the beauty of my country through Celestina” .
