Renan firmly embraces his roots in his designs and felt compelled to ‘give something back’ to his hometown in the province of Nueva Ecija. To support the livelihood of single mothers in his community in San Antonio, he employs them to sew pieces for him. He is also part of the One-Town-One Shoe project, which helps sustain the traditional shoe making in his community. His IFS collection will show his mastery of creating luxury street-wear and skillfully mixing local fibres.
