When Oliver Tolentino opened a Los Angeles boutique in 2009, he became the first Philippines-based fashion designer to expand into the United States. Dubbed the Valentino of the Philippines, Oliver has designed gowns for many well-known figures in his native country, including former First Lady Imelda Marcos.
Over the past five years, he has made his name both nationally and internationally, designing for prominent celebrities such as Arnel Pineda, lead singer of Journey. Internationally, Oliver designs for the biggest names in the Philippines, and won first place at Bali Fashion Week 2008 for a Carnivale parade outfit.
In October 2009, he presented a 40 piece collection based on eco-friendly materials, such as pineapple fiber, which he recently presented again in EcoChic Geneva, an eco-friendly fashion show held in Geneva, Switzerland.
