Exclusively His & Her Couture by Bong de Ocampo: Bridal Gowns in Metro Manila

Bong De Ocampo has been designing clothes for 20 years - starting as early as high school when she used to design her classmates' and sisters' prom dresses. After graduating from Clothing Technology at UP Diliman, Bong continued to hone her skills while working for trendy retail fashion brands Maldita and Sari-Sari.

At 25, she took over the Design Department of their family business - the prestigious EXCLUSIVELY HIS, which is currently the largest chain of tailoring boutiques in the country today. Exclusively His has been in the business of quality custom-made men's clothing for over 45 years and has remained the chosen personal tailor of choice of the country's top businessmen and politicians.

In 2002, Bong formally launched HER COUTURE, a women's line of tailor-fitted wear. Together with Exclusively His, she expanded into corporate wear - designing office uniforms for Top Corporations as SSS, PNOC, Generali Pilipinas and Merck Pharmaceuticals.

In 2007, while browsing through bridal exhibits for her own wedding, she was surprised to find the prohibitive price tags on bridal gowns and wedding entourages. Knowing the actual cost of production of women's clothing, she knew that beautiful, elegant dresses need not be priced sky high. She then resolved to create beautiful, elegant dresses at reasonable prices.

Although just a few years into the wedding couture market, clients have continuously gravitated towards Bong's chic and elegant taste. She has received much praise over her couture creations - made even better by her budget-friendly price tags. Her lively, easy-going personality is a perfect complement to her great skill.
