In his own words…
BEHIND THE SEAMS – by Mak Tumang
Going back to the time when the newly-crowned Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2018 Catriona Gray messaged me in December 2017 and told me about her intention to join a national pageant as an independent candidate and she wanted me to do her evening gown.
I must admit that I was adamant to commit at first, blame it to my bad experiences in the past from a particular camp and certain individuals. However, after our exchanges of messages and felt her sincerity that made me decide to give it a go.
I am sharing you the chronicle of the gown in the making from conceptualization, construction, detailing and finishing
See you soon UNIVERSE! 😊🌟👑 #TeamGray
