We were all mesmerized by Kathryn Bernardo’s perfect fuschia pink terno during the 2019 ABS-CBN Ball, but breaking news: she could have actually worn a completely different outfit.
In an Instagram post last Monday, September 16, the actress revealed that she tried a lot of dresses when she visited the atelier of Filipino fashion designer Michael Cinco in Dubai. Together, they considered the color, cut, and silhouette that would fit her best.
She wrote, “When I visited Michael Cinco’s atelier in Dubai, he actually had me try on several dresses to check the best cut, color, and silhouette for me. I fell in love with everything, to be honest, but in the end we were torn between red or pink (you already know what I chose).”
The actress also shared that she asked the renowned fashion designer to embody T’Nalak prints on her outfit, which was eventually done with the use of crystals.
“I originally requested to incorporate T’nalak prints to make the look very Filipino, and he did so without compromising the signature Michael Cinco aesthetic by mimicking the patterns using Swarovski crystals,” she added.
“Thank you so much, Michael and team, for accommodating me despite your very busy schedule and for making our vision a reality! This Filipiniana is everything I wanted and more. I am forever your fan and I could only wish for more collaborations in the future. Special thanks to Val Taguba as well for helping us out with the fittings and minor alterations!” Kathryn ended.
Kathryn recently starred alongside Alden Richards in Cathy Garcia-Molina’s “Hello, Love, Goodbye” which is now the country’s highest-grossing Filipino film of all time.
