I love the way our new and/or upcoming Fashion Designers are being given the spotlight in the wardrobe pieces of Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo from the time she left the Philippines for the US last April 9.
Together with the styling duo of Rain Dagala and Em Millan, they are working hard to give our Queen the best looks for every important public appearance. There may still be points for improvement along the way, but they are on the right track.
Here are BTS shots during the external shoot of Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo around Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles overlooking the iconic “Hollywood” sign in the background. She was accompanied by the entire team led by Creative Director Jonas A. Gaffud.

Some of you might be wondering about the departure outfit worn by Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo at the airport late yesterday afternoon.
The entire look is actually a collaboration of three homegrown brands. The top – courtesy of Chino Christopherson x Marc Rancy – is a Holy Mother of Pearls Barong (Perlas ng Silanganan Barong) which makes the wearer exude with bright confidence, power and fierceness. This is paired with the #MarcRancy trousers, with earrings from LVNA By Drake Dustin.
Styling by Team RainXEm (Rainier de Gala and Em Millan) with styling associates Rio Camantigue and Elaine Villapando.
