Domingo Lumanog Crafts a Glamorous Style That is All About Intuition

Domingo Lumanog’s gender-free style is more about authenticity than rebellion. In his view, normalizing the way he feels starts with himself. “If you’re going to make a big deal out of something, everybody’s going to make a big deal out of something. You are but a reflection of your world,” he says.

It might not be obvious at first glamorous glance, but Lumanog says one of his guiding principles is simplicity. He keeps his wardrobe limited and his colour palette mostly neutral. When he reaches for something to wear, he usually selects the most comfortable fabric. “I have no process,” he says. “I’m actually colour-blind.”

Currently a stylist at Saks Fifth Avenue, Lumanog, who is of Filipino heritage, studied information technology and business and marketing before entering the fashion industry in 2005. He also dabbles in supplemental careers including food-brokerage and yoga instruction. The thread between all this is his confidence in intuition and comfort in his own skin. “I can’t deny it,” he says. “I have a gift for being creative.”
