Since the school's establishment in 2007, SoFA Design Institute has produced hundreds of graduates from its various programs.
The school's Alumni pool make up the next generation of design movers and shakers. Each have become succesful in their respective creative fields and have become recognized names among the young creatives of the design industry.
Vania Romoff is slated to becoming the next household name in local couture. In her early 20s, this designer is proving herself, a dress at a time, that effortless style and understated elegance need not be boastful and grand. From the basic tools in every piece of fabric, needle and thread to the editorials, bright lights and runways, Vania Romoff is today’s quintessential designer, never failing to channel something new and different from the desire to make every piece a classic.
Fashion designer, Kaye Morales, has found a style that intertwines opposing designs with utmost taste – urban street wear with class, punk with sophistication and elegance with a wild streak. She fully expresses this fusion of creativity in her pret-a-porter line, “Schizo”. She also shows versatility in her very own made-to- order line stamped with her name. From cocktail chic to formal coats, Kaye’s signature of geometric patterns and shapes is distinct and her avant-garde touch is unmistakable.
Tipay Caintic is an artist, designer and SoFA scholar. Her acclaimed collection, "Hell Knows No Wrath Like Yolanda", a tribute to her hometown, Tacloban, has been featured at the International Fashion Show (IFS) 2014 of London Fashion Week.
