Ken Samudio – is a marine biologist-turned-accessory designer – is constantly inspired by the diversity in the coastal and reef system of the islands of the Philippines. His pieces – created with up-cycled beads made from plastic bottles and recycled glass combined with bamboo and abaca – earned him critical acclaim at the IFS 2014. Without any formal education in fashion, Ken continues to thrive in the industry armed only with his raw talent, determination and innate creativity.
