Sofia Valencia, Next Top Fashion Icon

Home to students who are exceptionally talented and who excel in academics, leadership, athletics and the performing arts, Southville International School and Colleges (SISC) is set to produce the country’s next top fashion icon personified by sophomore Sofia Aguilar Valencia. 

Sofia is currently making waves in the modeling industry as she was awarded New Generation Teen Fashionista and Most Liked Teen Fashionista during the Search for the 100 Teens Fashionista of Metro Manila 2011.


“It was a great experience joining the 100 Teen Fashionista 2011. It reflects my passion for creativity by being innovative in the different segments of the show. The most memorable part of the contest was the Fashion Show. I got a chance to be ingenious in my patriotic attire, be cool in my summer outfit, and come out of my shell in my “Teen Rockstar Attire,”  Sofia shared.

What does the Next Top Fashion Icon have to say to those who dream to pursue careers in fashion? Sofia advised them, “Do not be afraid to do what you love to do as long as you’re not stepping on someone; try to be the BEST that you can be. God has given us gifts that have made each one of us unique and beautiful in our own way.”
