Vito Selma of Stonesets International Inc. at ManilaFame International, Oct. 16-19, 2011

As one of Vito Selma's adopted mothers, I take pride in following this amazing professional's career. I had a short stint as Vito's guardian during his Academy of Art sojourn and I'm trying to catch up with his photography and cooking adventures in Milan nowadays. See, touch, and feel Vito's artistry at ManilaFame! Use http://bit.ly/rnp9Ux to share this story.

    For this content curation, I introduce you to the family that continues to be the best that they can be with their Cebu-based furniture design as well as high-fashion housewares and accessories business. 


    In the past 10-plus years, I've listened carefully to Moises and Evelyn Selma (the parents) as they educated me about the competitive and exhilarating world of original and innovative designs for every lifestyle. I've trekked through the factory, witnessed the designer changes in their homes --- and best of all, I've been a witness to their children's growth and evolution in the business (aside from Jiggy's golf course design expertise, Selina's business acumen, or Izabelli's adventures in fashion design, ala W Magazine).

    Among the children, it is the young (not even 30 years old yet, but that's a few years away) VITO SELMA I am focusing on today. The rest will get their turn as they keep updating me with their challenges and achievements. 

    Vito keeps reinventing the label "ARTIST." What doesn't he know what to do? Aside from furniture design, fashion photography, other forms of visual artistry, and gourmet cooking?

    The Selma family does not know that I've taken bits and pieces of my memories (and stalked their Facebook photos) --- and curated them into a special digital VIEW BOOK. Yes, this story can be embedded in anyone's blog or website, tweeted or facebooked, sent via smart phone, etc.

    With my love (and till I see you again)!
