Whether you believe it or not, fashion was not Russell Villafuerte’s first love. It was interior design that first caught this designer’s eye. It was only after that he realized that it was not the world he wanted to belong in.
One can call him a “veteran” when it comes to joining design competitions because this individual has the fighting spirit of a young bull. It was soon after winning second runner up in Project Runway Season 2 that he then coveted the precious spot as champion on MEGA’s Young Designers Competition. “A designer should never come to a point of being uninspired. A true designer should always be inspired,” Russell says. It seems like Russell draws his inspiration from a never ending well because he has not stopped since he started.
