Celebrating 15 years in the industry, jewelry designer Wynn Wynn Ong continues to redefine what it means to truly be a woman of style. In a special retrospective at Yuchengco Museum, Ong features the fruits of her creative endeavors through the decades—from art jewelry to objets d’art to couture. For the very first time, the museum’s Masters Gallery will showcase the works of the innovative style stalwart and aesthete. Highlights of the retrospective include Ong’s couture and private jewelry in collaboration with style brands, as well as furniture and lighting pieces.
Born in Burma and raised in Vienna and Manila to a family of women who collected jewelry, Ong’s continental upbringing and childhood travels around Europe formed her distinct sense of aesthetics. Ong started designing jewelry in 2001, without training or any formal background in gemology, because she could not find jewelry that she wanted to wear. Her work is celebrated for its craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail.
Wynn Wynn Ong: Redefining Boundaries is presented by Yuchengco Museum with the support of Wynn Wynn Ong Artisanal Works in celebration of Women’s Month.
