In the world masterfully created by jewelry designer Carlo Evaristo, statement pieces elaborately executed rule. Each necklace, handcuff, ring, pair of earrings, and bag creatively mix materials, intricate patterns, and colors – a trademark that has been synonymous with the artist’s name here and abroad. 

Evaristo ‘s brand, Otsirav’e, is known for jewelry with lavish silhouettes. His pieces use semi-precious stones, such as crystals, pearls, Murano stones, jade, and brass metal, among others. Press about the designer online applaud the craftsmanship he displays in the manner the stones are cut. The Filipino’s creations have been made available in high-end boutiques in Paris, while his bag collection have reached the shores of Greece. Evaristo’s designs have also filled booths for the American Women’s Club Bazaar in Manila. 

For Manila FAME this year, Evaristo’s collection is all handmade, features hammered brass, electroplated in 18K gold. His lineup includes chokers with freshwater pearls, as well as necklaces and statement earrings in select materials, like coral, jade and pearls. A brass evening clutch that features canvass painting can also be had. 

The designer’s creations can be found in boutiques and stores in the cities of Manila, New York, and Paris. The Philippine Otsirav’e store is located in San Lorenzo Village in Makati City and can be visited by appointment.  

Evaristo, who also dabbles in luxury resort wear through his brand Appliques, grew up around fashion as his family operated the Colleziones New York Boutique in the 1980s. He was sketching clothing designs by the age of seven and started his professional career by styling fashion spreads for magazines and billboards. 

He attended the Madonna School of Fashion and Costume Design in the Philippines and also attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City in the United States to study management, product development, and fashion merchandising. As his interested leaned more towards beading and embellishments, he decided to focus on creating jewelry. His brand, Otsirav’e (which is his surname spelled backwards), was established shortly after. 

When Evaristo set his eyes on joining Manila FAME, he was advised to bring his brand to Paris, France. He sent an inquiry to Agence Le Bon Mot, a company that represents European fashion and lifestyle brands. He was included the designer in the 2017-2018 staging of the prestigious tradeshow Premiere Classe, where he was one of 12 Filipino designers featured.
