The name St Augustine Academy, references Manolo’s childhood experiences growing up in a small town catholic school in the Phillipines, playing an influential role in his inspiration for his designs, along with a strong emphasis on the music scene.

His latest collection for Spring/Summer 09-10 Do You Believe Her?  is based around the The Raveonettes’ song of the same name, drawing from their quirky interpretations of 1950s and 1960s  rock music culture.
