Venie Tadeo's Biography
Venancio Tadeo, originally from the Philippines, came to the United States in 1978, with very little money in his pocket but a big dream in his heart to become a fashion designer and his eyes were focused directly on Hollywood. After spending a few years in the west, Venancio felt a strong desire to travel and dive deeper into the fashion show industry, while studying fashion in real-time, up close, and personal, learning directly from the culture around him, through his adventures around the country.
This was just the platform Venancio needed, as he was now designing and exhibiting on some of the most incredible catwalks, including Los Angeles, Dallas, Montreal, New York, Miami, and Atlanta positioning him as an internationally recognized designer.
Venancio's journey is not close to coming to an end; In fact, he has now decided to call the Charlotte area home, which is one of the greatest powers in today's fashion industry.
Venancio is synonymous with authenticity, creativity, extravagance, and elegance. Each of these adjectives is delicately captured in his designs.
Renowned for his professional career in the world of fashion, creativity, and design, Venancio Tadeo on this occasion make a presence with his innovative creations at the 2021Highlight Concepts Fashion Show, showing his exclusive collection for the audience of the Raleigh-Durham and Chapel Hill area, better known as the triangle in North Carolina.
