What better way to receive the highest recognition of the Philippine government to Filipino individuals and organizations overseas than with an elegant creation by legendary fashion designer Michael Cinco — who was also a recipient of the same award in 2014.

With intricate waves of structured mosaic patterns, the ensemble was bejeweled with glittering crystals that cascaded down the dress. “This mermaid gown was made with full Swarovski crystals, with a dramatic terno sleeve on the left side,” said Cinco.
