Such a sad, sad news.
World-Class Designer Rocky Gathercole passed away just earlier tonight.
Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.
Rest in peace. 😔
P.S. According to reports, his death was not caused by any sickness. More of an accident inside the house, I was told.

In the meantime, below are photos from the National Costume presentation at the Carnaval Boulevard where Katrina made it as one of the Top 5 Finalists. She wore a Rocky Gathercole creation.
Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas Katrina S. Llegado was a finalist in the National Costume Competition of Reina Hispanoamericana where she wore an Ibong Adarna ensemble by Designer Rocky Gathercole with heels by Jojo Bragais and the assistance of Pablo Galicia Mendez III and Moderna Filipinas Fabrica.
Our Reina is indeed a colorful vision in this costume!
Before Christmas this year, someone will soar higher than ever before. And I hope it’s going to be Miss Philippines Emma Tiglao in Miss Intercontinental 2019!
Our Queen is ready to take flight in these photos where she is wearing Rocky Gathercole.

Up to now, I have constantly teetered between #Binibini26 Emma Tiglao and #Binibini12 Gazini Ganados on who deserves to win a good crown more than the other. They appear to be almost in the same mold and impact.
For now, let’s discuss about the Kapampangan beauty Emma and her chances of finally realizing a lifelong pageant dream in Bb. Pilipinas 2019.

Best of luck to Miss Intercontinental Philippines 2018 Karen Gallman in tonight’s finals of the 47th Miss Intercontinental. The competitiom has gotten harder with the presence of strong favorites Gabriela Soley of Paraguay and Olivia Möller of Germany. But knowing our bet’s fierce determination to do the country proud, I’m pretty sure she will do well when the going gets tough.

Last night at the Grand Ballroom of Solaire Resort and Casino, the Miss Universe Charity Fashion Gala was held in cooperation with Frontrow Cares and Hope for Change Foundation. Our visiting Miss Universe titleholders Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and Iris Mittenaere – along with our very own Pia Wurtzbach walked the runway for a good cause. Wearing creations by our top designers like Francis Libiran and Rajo Laurel, they were joined by the Miss Universe 2017 national winners who also displayed their taste and elegance in gowns made by the likes of Mark Bumgarner, Frederick Peralta, Edwin Uy, Val Taguba, Rocky Gathercole, Cherry Samuya Veric, Ofelia Simpao and more.
What added special glitter to the event was the presence of six of our Miss Universe Philippines winners – Bianca Manalo, Venus Raj, Shamcey Supsup, Ara Arida, MJ Lastimosa and Maxine Medina – who also participated in the fashion show and presented onstage in chronological order of their years in competition.
