7. Tricia Gosingtian
Japan-obsessed Tricia Gosingtian dabbled in fashion by getting occasional modeling gigs, and mostly by snapping shots of her friends from school. In 2007, she began shooting for a teen magazine and has since skyrocketed to fame, even putting together a “dark fairytale” themed editorial for Preview’s 150th issue. Aside from Tricia’s burgeoning career in photography, the Ateneo graduate is also known around the world for being one of Lookbook.nu’s top 10 fashion inspirations, a top blogger on Tumblr, and a “style icon” on Chictopia. Endorsements follow Tricia wherever she goes—most recently, she has become an official brand ambassador for Forever21, and has worked with Bayo and Heima as well. Her biggest success, however, was being picked as one of Tumblr’s chosen 24 bloggers (and the only one from Asia) sent to cover New York Fashion Week.
