ABOOUT THE DESIGNER

My goal as a créateur de mode has always been to make women stand out. I want them to walk into a room and make them the centre of every man’s fantasy. I want them to discover her beauty and embrace her imperfections. And hopefully through my dress, she realises her worth and radiates that sensual bliss with confidence that men will inadvertently put her on a pedestal, not only because the dress is beautiful, but because she really is.
— Marc Rancy, 2008

What started as a hobby in a car garage with one sewing machine in the suburbs of Manila in 2008, Marc Rancy found his eponymous label creating exquisite dresses for the sophisticated and sensual women. With nothing but passion, talent and sheer dedication, he slowly gained strong following with Manila's elite and celebrities. Soon after, he had opened his first boutique in the commercial centre of Manila, and had gone on to participate in Philippine Fashion Week and his clothes have been seen in magazines and print. In 2010, he became one of the official brand partners of Swarovski Elements, also opening a boutique in the world's third-biggest shopping complex, SM Mall of Asia. Since then, he had gone on to make collaborations with Mercedes Benz, MINI Philippines and Acacia Hotel Manila. Rancy took his design degree in Singapore's Raffles Design Institute and recently finished his dual-master of Fashion Management in Paris' IESEG School of Management and Istituto Marangoni Paris. Marc Rancy is currently residing in Paris while his highly skilled artisans work in his atelier in Manila.
