Finally! You don’t need to fly to Dubai to get your hands on a Michael Cinco creation. A couture multi-designer brand, Couturissimo, has launched in the Philippines. This means it is now easier for Filipinos to have a taste of Cinco’s top notch dresses and gowns, as he is one of the designers featured in the Greenbelt boutique.
The brand was originally an online shopping site, conceptualized by the Asian Couture Federation, which works with other couture designers around the world. Cinco’s creations for the brand will be labeled Couturissimo X Michael Cinco.
The launch was held in Greenbelt 5 over the weekend.
It was hell of a star-studded affair as celebrities and socialites flocked to the fabulous event. Cinco took to his private Instagram account last night to share a photo of him striking a pose in front of the boutique, wearing a sleek black suit with his signature oversized sunglasses.
Spotted was Miss World Philippines 2017 Laura Lehmann who shared a photo of her hosting of the launch on her Instagram page three days ago. She congratulated Cinco for the successful launch.
Kapuso Actress and superstar Marian Rivera and husband, actor Dingdong Dantes were two of Cinco’s VIP guests in the launch. Rivera has worn multiple Cinco creations in the past, particularly during her own wedding, where she wore a dramatic and romantic gown by the designer.
Present in the event as well were Audrey Tan Zubiri, businesswoman and wife of politician Juan Miguel Zubiri; talent manager Arnold Vegafria.
The twist of the night was that actress-singer Karylle Padilla who also happens to be the ex-girlfriend of Dingdong. So, in essence, Karylle and Dingdong, together with Marian, met again for the first time after all the controversies.
Miss Universe 1973 Margie Moran and businesswoman Kat Florencio also did not miss out on the exclusive launch and made sure they had a picture with Cinco for safekeeping.
Celebrity doctors Dr. Vicky Belo and Dr. Hayden Kho’s attendance was confirmed, too, when Cinco posed for a photo with the adorable Scarlet Snow Belo Kho.
Marian has a new segment in Sunday Pinasaya called Glenda and the Budots Gang. Where they teaches different style of Budots dance.
Member of Budots Gang are Budoy, Buding, Budang, and Bading. Basket ball players join them to teach the dribol version of Budots.
