Sketches from a Young Dreamer


Sketches from a Young Dreamer

According to a recent study made by Academic Journal Social Forces, only 6 % of adults ended up in the careers they dreamt about as kids, in reference some might have argued that childhood dreams are ultimately futile, it not the obvious case for Ryan Chris Baylen.

R Y A N C H R I Sä House of Fashion as we know it started as “Ryan Chris Gown Rentals” in the outskirts of Sta. Ana, Manila Philippines, where then the Advertising & PR graduate Ryan Chris Baylen at his 20s started his hopes to build a fashion label under his name; “My first investment was a gown I bought for P 1,000, that was initially rented for prom at P 500” says Ryan Chris Baylen, CEO & President of R Y A N C H R I Sä House of Fashion.

“ It was his life long dream, I remembered him sketching gowns way back our elementary days” according to Alexander John Rico (Ryan’s childhood best friend and classmate). Life is full of unknown twists, unexpected turns, moments of frustrations, and triumphs. That is the balance of life, since its true that there are no keys to success because the doors are always open to those who are determined to outgrow the challenges and believe in the capacity of their hearts to fulfill their dreams. “Though failure is constant and present in every step, it allowed me to stay grounded and continue to aspire for more”, continued Ryan Chris.

Just like everyone, Ryan Chris has his own share of life’s failures; he faced several job interviews (he failed), he even opened his own printing shop (and he failed again); until he went on pursuing the dream; “I remembered Ryan crying over the phone, saying nothing, but its all in the past now, I am quite sure that he’s happy with the turn out of everything” shares Ricmer Francisco (Ryan’s best friend and classmate)

I remembered Sir Ryan being so passionate about his craft and that he won’t rest until he reached close to perfection down to the intricate details”, shared by Myra Jarabe, Admin Manager R Y A N C H R I Sä House of Fashion. Likewise, the stunning collection dubbed as “Ofrendas de Flores or Flower Offering” is shown during the ENGAGED: BRIDAL AND BEAUTY FASHION WEEKEND EXPO at One Esplanade, Pasay Manila Philippines.

“Stunning, unexpected and a rebellious portrayal of wedding gowns and entourage, this is the future of the wedding gown industry in Asia”, Yhuong Botor, Director.

From one gown rented at P 500, today Ryan Chris was able to create custom made wedding gowns for hundreds of happy brides; “My wedding gown was worth every hard-earned money plus it went beyond my expectations because of the excellent service before and on the day of my wedding, Aliza del Valle, 2018 bride”. “It’s true that sometimes we want to embrace the convenient life, but let me be a living testament that dreams do come true”, ends Ryan Chris.
