Beyond the needles and threads.
by Alliah Delgado

For September Issue, STAIL.PH wants to celebrate the becoming of a woman. This month’s STAIL Icon Kyline Alcantara wore the Fuchsia Pink Power Suit creation of Erwin Flores.


What is Fashion for Erwin?

 Is a manifestation of how one lives and sees the world translated into clothing.”

Erwin is a fashion designer, theater and events director, choreographer, life coach, and educator. He designed of the Pink Suit worn by Miss Universe Catriona Gray. This famous creation landed the pages of Vogue Thailand.


Erwin knew he wanted to be a designer at the age of 5. He even turned their Patahian as his own playground. Growing up, his mother inspired him to pursue his path in fashion.


He is aware that starting out late gave him a hard time to break through and create a name in the fashion scene. Despite all the rough days, he learned to always stick to the truth and continue making true choices regardless of what others think. He still goes for the gold despite all the challenges. Erwin wants to develop a label of his own and dress international celebrities in the future.


And his dream muse? Of course, it’s Park Seo Joon.


What’s the future of fashion? 

“I believe fashion will never go away. It will just be reinvented or would be responsive to something other than what it was before.”



Erwin is aware that fashion is struggling at this time. However, he believes that it will always be there. It will just constantly adapt to the unending changes in the industry.


Now that he is making a name in this field, Erwin has his own share of regrets and learning how to say no late in the game is his biggest concern. He doesn’t want to be remembered as just the guy who creates masterpieces but as a kind and compassionate designer.
