Joey Samson has long created a non-conformist identity in the fashion scene, with pieces that are highly conceptual in their androgynous aesthetic even as they are functional; his latest collection is no exception. “You see a piece you like and it’s no longer important if it was meant to be worn by a man or a woman; it’s the wearer that matters,” he says. “The looks I presented tonight are gender-bending. While there are certain influences from the past that I drew from, I tried to make them look current and fresh. I created them with brave people in mind: people who have enough courage to discover the other side of themselves, those who don’t immediately say ‘That’s not appropriate.’”

With the show done and over with, Samson allows himself some measure of relaxation. To the question of whether “Detour” is an indication of his next design direction, he says, “I’m the type who doesn’t look too far ahead. I take things as they come, one day at a time.” What he’s certain of, after 10 years of turning the Philippine fashion scene on its head, is the progressive nature of his work and his career. While future shows will always be nerve-wracking experiences, Samson also knows he’ll always take on the challenge. “The only way to move forward is to be brave.”-PhilStar
