MANILA, Philippines — Top Cebuana designer, Gladys “G” Young of VERO, captivates with Meet Me Thursday, a fine jewelry art exhibition of some of her best artisanal pieces at the Manila House Private Club.
Aptly named Meet Me Thursday—the day of her exhibition launch—the collection boasts some of Young’s select one-off pieces. She explains, “It’s mostly my one-of-a-kinds, and we’re bringing it to Manila for a limited time. So, yes there’s an urgency—meet me Thursday.”
The fact that the collection holds a special place in G’s heart isn't surprising, given the myriad of collections she has curated during her illustrious 20-year career as a jewelry designer. The art exhibition is strictly by invite—and features an impressive collection of pieces that are delicate yet bold in character, a mix of the artist’s finesse and the material’s unyielding strength.
VERO embodies wearable art that radiates abundant character, offering a multitude of design possibilities to embrace diverse tastes and individuality.
The VERO founder envisions her pieces as a perfect match for empowered, chic and versatile Filipina women brimming with confidence and courage. “Passion spells the difference. When you love what you do, it speaks that language. And while some call it talent, I call it drive,” Young says.
When asked about her sources of inspiration, Young says she draws her creative energy from audacious women who embrace risk without reservation. The designer herself understands the art of taking calculated risks.
“Prior to delving into jewelry design, I worked in our family’s restaurant chain,” she reveals. “But art is what I love what I do, and I believe that I will be doing this forever. That’s what propelled me forward in this journey.”
