UAE-based couturier Michael Cinco has already dressed up a lot of local and international celebrities in his career, but it was creating Kris Aquino’s yellow gown in the movie “Crazy Rich Asians” that made him “proud to be a Filipino designer”.

In a report by James Gabrillo published on The National, the Filipino designer, who hailed from Samar, said that designing a dress for the Queen of All Media can be considered is one of the highlights of his career as a fashion designer even though he has already been known for dressing A-list celebrities like Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga.

“While dressing up these famous international [stars] has really been a dream come true, dressing up one of the biggest celebrities from the Philippines gives me a different feeling – it makes me proud to be a Filipino designer,” The National quoted Cinco as saying.

In the same interview, Cinco also gave some in-depth details about the yellow gown he created for Aquino, who played a Malay princess named Intan in the film.

“I was given specifications by her stylists that her role in the movie will be a princess attending a lavish wedding. They asked me to create a yellow gown that will be fitting for her role,” Cinco said.

For her part, Aquino also thanked the UAE-based designer for creating her gown.

“This is the back shot of the gown I wore as Princess Intan in Crazy Rich Asians, created by Michael Cinco who originally came from Samar,” she wrote.

She also said that the appearing in the movie made her realize the greatest gift it give her which is to “make Filipinos feel good about [themselves] and [their] contribution to the global workforce”.
