Andru believes the business of fashion is true embodiment- it begins with being sultry and sleek from the inside out. He’s also quick to distinguish what every man wants and who every woman desires to be.
The son of African-American and Filipino parents, Andru maintains a rooted connection to his ethnic background. Andru is also an aficionado of vintage fashion, giving his art a contemporary yet enduring quality. Andru’s talent is more than frenzied escapism, he gives you the opportunity to transform. His careful attention reigns as the ultimate instigator – instigating an individualized style revolution for every person he works with.
Andru is constantly in the process of creating and capturing eccentric ideas and using the stories that fuel them to produce three-dimensional embodiments. He believes that a true artist can never rest, because even in their sleep they are in the act of creation. His specific perception of style naturally infuses itself with a sultry, dramatic taste of fashion’s past with his sharp eye for details. Andru stays seduced in his lucid and wonderfully deranged menage a trois with vintage, high-end and urban fashion.
Today, Andru currently holds a freelance position of Editorial Art Director for Industry Magazine and The Society Diaries. His styling work has been featured in over five dozen editorials from Hermés Paris, Fred Leighton, Rahaminov Diamonds print campaigns, Vogue Italia, Jimon, Schon, Sports Illustrated, Esquire, The Wall Street Journal, and celebrities such as Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Dawn Richard, Bonnie Mckee, Bree Codon, and Porcelian Black. Andru's latest projects include showcasing at Los Angeles Fashion Week and debuting a successful pop-up shop located within steps of the high-end Caruso Affiliated shopping community, The Americana at Brand.
Confident as a fashion visionary and determined to step all over what is acceptable, Andru’s goal is to unleash and expose every woman’s and clients subconscious, chaotic prowress.
