Garimon Roferos Couture opened in 2016 with Garimon Roferos as the Creative Director of the company.   Garimon Roferos stands out in a competitive Dubai Fashion Industry as a result of his avant-garde attitude towards his craft.  Although known in the fashion community as very modest, his past achievements and gown portfolio reflect his other side:  innovative, exciting, and edgy.  His designs strike a delicate balance between classicism and fantasy.

The Davao Filipino native’s rise to fame started when he won the coveted Concours Internationale Des Jeunes Creatures de Mode’s D’Incitation held in Paris, France in 2004.  What caught the eyes of the judges, particularly of fashion icon Pierre Cardin, was Garimon’s ingeniously designed entry – an architecturally structured Philippine terno made purely from aquatic plant lilies and bago-bago vines.  In 2010, he closed his shop in Davao and moved to Dubai to work under the direction of Michael Cinco.  Just 6 years later, his successes led to opening a Couture shop under his own name.  The following year, 2017, The Philippine Fashion Times awarded him the “Most Promising Designer of the Year.”  In 2017 and 2018, the Filipino Times named Garimon among the “100 Most Influential Filipinos in the World.”

Garimon Roferos Couture rewrites the rules of traditional bridal fashion, created for your individual style.  The couture shop caters to clientele that wish to be an integral part of the Couture gown design experience, with Garimon personally catering to the customer’s every desire and making their dreams come true.  Garimon personally sits with each of his customers from design inception, embroidery works creation, and a personalized individual fitting.  The brand is known for especially detailed wedding gowns and unique evening dresses made with elaborate designs, exquisite fabrics, and intricate embroideries.  Our showroom in Business Bay, Dubai, is home to our innovative designs which characterize affordable luxury.  We create every woman’s dreams.
