Opulence may not be a keyword one would expect in a ready to wear line, but this is what premier designer Albert Andrada offers to the elegant and accomplished woman who is looking for clothes-on-the-go

The stamp of luxury presented by Albert Andrada in all his creations stems from his years of experience as an international designer that dates back to the late 1980’s. Prior to coming to Manila to establish his own line, Albert Andrada served as chief Creative Director in one of the prestigious fashion houses in the United Arab Emirates. He also served as a royal designer for one of the ruling families in the region.

Through the years, the Albert Andrada brand has created a steady following among illustrious women in the United Arab Emirates and the Philippines. Complementing his commercial success is as string of accolades he reaps.
