Around May of last year, the artist debuted with a set of 14 exquisitely handcrafted minaudieres under her eponymous brand via an exhibtion entitled: Tenorio/Jorge: Filipino Specimens--held at the Philippine Center, 556 Fifth Avenue, New York.
Contemporary Filipiniana takes the global spotlight in richly embellished clutches recreating life as wearable modern art. Jorge’s artisan-crafted purses is a feast for the senses celebrating nature via fashion art made from stick, stone, metal, and shell--a homage to Mother Earth. The sought after artist is a storyteller who narrates the beauty of fashion through the art of her magnificent wonders.
The masterful creations take inspiration from nomadic discoveries, quiet observations and isolated remembrances refreshed through memories. History takes part as one of the moving forces behind the process of creation. Her capsule collection is a style-forward interpretation of modern luxury and emulates the brilliance of Filipino artistry. This master in the making is the embodiment of the modern Pinoy with the foresight and talent that's truly world class.
