Last night, the final ancillary event of the 65th Miss Universe was held at Conrad Manila. It was the well-attended National Gift Auction which followed the much-anticipated Designers Showcase where our talented designers took the spotlight where their creations were worn on the runway by the contestants.
As leader-of-the-pack Albert Andrada puts it, “I am so happy and fulfilled to have talked to 87 Filipino fashion designers and to unite them in one of the major ancillary events of the Miss Universe Competition. January 23 will be a night of gift giving, empowered women and a fashion gala of Filipino designers. This is a very rare evening wherein one can witness the Miss Universe’s official candidates wearing the creations of our country’s pride in the fashion industry. To my colleagues in the fashion industry, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your support!!! Mabuhay!” #united #filipinofashiondesigners #missuniverse2017

Jonas Borces is putting the finishing touches on how Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson will look like the moment she starts competing for the Miss Intercontinental 2014 crown in Tala Bay, Aqaba, Jordan.
Without a doubt, the face of Kris looks a lot more welcoming now, wholesome even. When she was crowned last March, her styling was relatively distant and stilted to a certain extent. But in the magic hands of her mentor, the results have transformed the beauty into a major contender for the title.
Now if only we could pair the face with a complete wardrobe provided by Cebu’s top fashion designers like Cary Santiago, Furne One, OJ Hofer, Jun Escario and Philip Rodriguez, then the journey of Kris will be a lot less thorny. Don’t you think so, dear readers? 🙂
