Meet Vin Mantala: The Pride of Mindoro's Pageant Couture

Dec 7, 2023 0 comments


It all began with decorating classrooms, assuming the role of a school project manager, creating dresses for the social fair's fashion show, and applying makeup for her classmates. Now, at the age of 30, Arvin Mantala is leaving her mark with every step, blazing a trail in the art industry. 

When one looks at her creations, it might be assumed they were crafted by someone with a degree in fashion design. Reality check: Vin's talent has brought her to where she is now. She never had a specialization or educational background in design and artistry. It runs in her veins, emerging effortlessly and naturally.

A Glance at Her Creative Journey

The beauty of every craft she creates is woven with a lovely story and collaboration. It requires patience, unimaginable imagination, and creativity for her to provide the best for every client, ensuring satisfaction is the ultimate outcome. Each piece is unique and tailored to fit individual preferences. She designs based on each person's personality and charm, enhancing them with beads and crystals, which she predominantly uses. She ensures they radiate elegance when worn with comfort.

Vin shared one of her most memorable experiences with us when she was challenged to create a fully hand-beaded gown by her friend, who is a reigning queen after winning Miss Victoria 2022. With little to no knowledge of how to make it, she faced it head-on. Vin learns on her own and scrolls through social media, and ends up creating a perfect gown her friends ask for. 

Colorful Path of Makeup Artistry

Her hands can do magic. We are already amazed with how beautiful and intricate her gowns are but she can do more than that. In makeup artistry, Vin customizes her approach to enhance features without overwhelming natural beauty. She recalls a significant moment during Miss Socorro 2022, where her makeup masterpiece didn't just paint a face but painted a path to victory.

Fashion and beauty trends evolve over time, and for her to keep up with them, she makes sure that her style will have a timeless impact.

Behind Every Success


Vin's family has been the most significant inspiration throughout her career. They never fail to encourage and push her through everything that happens to her. She was surrounded by great people and had a strong force of support that kept her creative fire burning.

Like any other artist, despite their greatness, they always idolize someone for showing the same greatness they wanted for themselves. Jonas Gafud, the queen maker who mastered the art of makeup and crafting stunning gowns, is one that motivated her to do great, wishing one day she gets the chance to work with him. 

Vin's creation is one of a kind. You can get the chance to wear one of his creations, so you better check out her works through her social media platforms: Facebook Page
