..: Bio :..
Chiara J Plamenco was born in Manila, Philippines and moved to Toronto at the age of 6. At a very young age she found her passion for fashion from the many shopping trips to the mall with her younger brother, older sister and parents almost every weekend.
With media and technology on the rise, Chiara J Plamenco became quickly fascinated by the idea of being able to take an idea and see it on screen. She was intrigued with coding and signed up for her first page on Asian Avenue. The site gave you the option of using HTML to alter your page and from there she was hooked. She wanted a page that was different from everyone else and screamed “That is so Chiara”.
At the age of 16 she got her first job working as a Sales Associate for Jacob Jr. She loved the idea of putting together outfits together and helping mothers and fathers find the perfect outfit for their daughter(s). After a few years, she knew it was time to move on to a different clientele and to a more fashion forward company. She was hired as an Assistant Manager for Costa Blanca and was soon promoted to Corporate Office as a Graphic Designer. She got the best of both worlds: fashion & graphics.
