Full lineup and tickets:
After graduating with a B.A. Degree in Fashion & Textiles design in San Francisco, and Business Administration at San Diego Stage, Mr. Galon began his creative career in marketing, public relations and special events in the fashion industry, producing high profile fashion shows which allowed him the opportunity to establish new product launches, public relations, design sets, choreograph shows and work exclusively with top couture designers and their collections, including many well known supermodels. In addition to fashion show presentations, Mr. Galon contributed his creative eye doing event planning & visual displays for such renown retail companies as I.Magnin, Neiman Marcus, Escada & Armani.
He is known for contributing vast amounts of energy, creativity and talent toward the success of special events such as Macy’s Passport Fashion Show, Sausilito Art Festival and has worked exclusively on esteemed companies such as Bob Mackie Fashions, Thierry Mugler, Oscar de la Renta, Hubert de Givenchy (with the late Audrey Hepburn), San Francisco Opera and Ballet Fashion shows, De Young Museum & Asian Art Museum featuring various haute couture designers.
Combining his educational and professional career with fashion, Mr. Galon has been a beauty pageant aficionado. He started as staff member with pageants in the early 80’s with Miss Philippines USA Pageant, a preliminary to the Miss Philippines Universe, World and International Pageant in Manila, Philippines. He designed his first pageant gowns in 1983, which was the catalyst to study fashion design in college. He has since been Executive Director for local pageants in the Miss America program, worked as staff member for Miss USA, Miss Universe, coached countless pageant delegates and has judged numerous pageants across the country and internationally.
Twenty plus years in fashion and with pageant involvements, plus twenty years in personal development and public speaking has lead him to open an additional business called ‘Runway4Life’ (www.runway4life.com), a personal development, pageant & life coaching and wardrobe styling organization. Runway4Life has provided him the opportunity as keynote speaker at various events both nationally and Internationally, teaching his self-empowerment & personal development courses to hundreds of students.
His clothing line: ‘Joey Galon Atelier’ was officially launched at Miss USA 2010 in Las Vegas, showcasing his collections of evening gowns to the pageant world. His gowns have been seen on national and international pageant stages.
“I bring forth today, my original influences in my evening gowns. I appreciate a woman’s body and feel as if I am more of an artistic facilitator to enhance their natural born beauty. A good fit, well-made gown, style & color that reflects their personality is my most important motivation along with contributing my years of artistic education & experiences. This is my ultimate personal approach to design.”
He continues, “Graduating with a degree in fashion design and immersing myself with fashion and creativity for all my life, it had been an easy transition when I entered the special events industry. I take the same approach to color, balance and symmetry with events as when I design my gowns.”
“I especially target the pageant market because women are celebrated formally during the evening gown phases of competition and it brings me back to me fond memories of many black tie events I once was accustomed to growing up in the Big City. I think every woman should celebrate their beauty and moreover in a beautiful gown!”
As a FilAm born and raised in San Francisco with his Father’s origin from Bohol and Mother’s family origin from Cebu, his upbringing was highly influential by his parents whom were extremely involved with the Filipino communities, organizations & clubs holding leadership positions for many years. His Ninong was Alex Esclamado, the original founder & publisher of the Philippine News where Joey grew up running around the printing presses in his God-parent’s basement eventually appointed as a reporter for the newspaper covering all topics for the Youth Section of the newspaper. He was a former Philippine cultural dancer for the Samahan Dance Troupe as well as former President of his FilAm College Club.
“I’m just carrying on the leadership torch of my Parents and God-Parents, I am giving back uplifting efforts for the Filipino communities and living my dreams and passions in Fashion, Special Events, Personal Development Training and Keynote Speaking.”
Currently the Creative Accounts Manager for Blueprint Studios, Joey joins the Filipino American Chamber of Commerce, Hollywood as its Event Director.
