Angela Sison was born in Walnut Creek, California but moved to Manila in the Phillippines as a child. She attended Saint Pedro Poveda College before coming to the Academy of Art University to earn her B.F.A. in Fashion Design. Sison was inspired by the popular 1950s British youth cult the Teddy Boys – known for their tailored, slim-fitting attire. The collection was made using a combination of lightweight wools, wool plaids, and cotton shirting.
