Filipino designer Mak Tumang
MANILA, Philippines — Apart from her beauty, Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray stood out in her gowns in the pageant.
The Filipino-Aussie beauty’s best assets and features were showcased in Filipino designer Mak Tumang pieces.
Last week, three of the stunning outfits of the country’s fourth Miss Universe were featured at a mall exhibit in Pampanga.
This includes the red hot Mayon gown she wore during her crowning moment as Miss Universe 2018; Adarna gown at the preliminaries and Sinag gown during her victory in Binibining Pilipinas.
And for the beauty of the masterpieces, the Kapampangan designer is starting to gain attention in the international scene.
He has been receiving messages and calls from other countries over design works.
“When I was in Arena in Bangkok may mga ibang countries na nagparamdam and there are other candidates and other organization from different countries are messaging me in Instagram in social media,” he said.
Filipinos, meanwhile, are proud of the designer’s success.
“Sobrang ganda kasi makikita mo na siya picture ang ganda, pero ‘pag nakita mong personal sobrang ganda lalo na nakasuot na rin ako ng gown ni Mak Tumang,” said AJ Garcia.
“Proud na proud po kami kasi Kapampanga po siya and Kapampangan po ako,” said Hearty Angele Dabu.
Though Mak was not expecting this kind of attention, he is thankful for the blessing he received.
“Parang halos lahat kilala na ‘ko, pero yung gravity ngayon ko pa lang nararamdaman talaga,” said Mark Tumang.
Tumang is planning to create a gallery for Catriona’s gowns including his other masterpieces. — Leslie Longboen | UNTV News and Rescue
