Today was also the audition for #DancesOfTheWorld. Excited to see what she will be wearing? Well, here’s a description:
“Miss World Philippines 2018 Katarina Rodriguez will don a custom Francis Libiran ensemble as her national costume for the upcoming Miss World 2018 competition. The look and design of this number is inspired by the ingenuity, unparalleled artistry and the rich history of the Philippines’ Kalinga tribe. The ensemble is composed of a fully-embroidered and hand-embellished bodysuit accessorized with a custom-made headdress adorned with feathers and the iconic ‘bongol’— the native beads used to indicate the social status of a Kalinga woman. The custom embroidery art on the entire bodysuit depicts the iconic tattoo art which known as the symbol of the Kalinga people and warriors. This national costume also pays homage to Whang-od, the last surviving original, hand-tap tattoo artist from Kalinga’s Butbut tribe.”

Michael Cinco in Iceland
You want something juicy to talk about? Now this one is a safe blind item because – after all – negotiations did not prosper so it’s just something to make wild guesses about.
Who is this Binibini among the present forty (40) who was originally scheduled to be dressed up by the Impalpable Michael Cinco in the competition? At first, the mere thought of this lady wearing his creation/s would be so intimidating to other designers or even the other candidates as it will give that kind of advantage that can be considerably hard to match in terms of media mileage and popularity. Somehow, the lit-fire was doused just at the right moment. Perhaps, the risk on both wearer and the Designer can be weighty – more on the latter in my opinion.
Do not ask me clues on who the Binibini is because my lips are permanently sealed on this one. Just enjoy the discussions.
Now since we are in the subject of Michael Cinco, do watch out for the fashion show that will be this year’s most anticipated as he will be joined by Francis Libiran, Amato Furne, Ezra Santos and Cary Santiago in a grand event aptly titled “World Class” in celebration of Waterfront Cebu City Hotel’s 20th Anniversary. It will be held at the Pacific Grand Ballroom on October 6. 😉
