Veluz strives to achieve a perfect fit with all her custom made gowns and dresses. She believes the perfect fit actually begins when she listens to what the client wants, understands her, identifies her confidences and realizes her weakness. Only then does the suitable dress begin to take form. Fitting perfection in this case happens with attention to detail and numerous measurement taking. There really is no magic involve, it takes a lot of preparation, effort and skill to achieve the best fit. And if it doesn’t (a rarity today, thankfully) she just does it all over again.
In the early 90’s, after taking BS Clothing Technology from the University of the Philippines, Veluz worked briefly for a European mail order catalogue as a merchandiser handling French and German buyers. Then in 1994 she started Twigs Clothing to design, manufacture and supply children’s clothes for high-end labels. For the next few years, haute couture was a hobby for friends and family. But by 1998, orders from referrals alone were enough to justify her getting into it full time. Thus was born, SEEDS Custom Clothing. From the start, achieving the complete look has been the ultimate goal and accessorizing — particularly shoes and bags — was often an obstacle. Making what couldnâ€™t be purchased became the norm by 2001. In a couple of years, SEVEN Shoes and bags achieved recognition with a special feature segment on GMA Channel 7’s EXTRA PORMA.
Veluz also won as W@W’s 2005 Supplier of the year.
