"In the past, people were born royal. Nowadays, royalty comes from what you do." – Gianni Versace I felt incredibly proud to shed light on the rich, beautiful culture of Mindanao, most specifically Marawi which as of late has been synonymous with war, loss and tradegy. @jearsond took a vision, and brought it to life. His passion for what he does shows in every stone, every thread and every detail. Working with @jearond and his team was a dream and I couldn't think of a better pairing! 😻✨ The look was completed with original, handmade adornments lovingly created by @farah_abu. ✨✨✨ The weaved Inaul fabric unique to the Maguindanaon and Iranun tribes in Muslim Mindanao used in the gown was integrated into traditional style wedge shoes by @bragaisshoes. To my whole team along with @ton_lao, @harleybarleyyy, the creative vision of Jesson Cappuchino, dance choreography of my angels, @mimsqiu for my pasabog nails and @robinhistoria of David's Salon who made me look like a Muslim Princess last night at the @bbpilipinasofficial National Costume show, I love you all!! 😻 To all of my loves who have commented and showed their support either in person or online, thank you! I loved being a princess for a night! Thank you for supporting my journey to be a queen! 14 days to go! 👑 Photography @riaregino / Makeup @chinitohosikusieho / Hair @hairbybrentsales #CatrionaGrayBBP2018 #CatGanern #Binibini20 #BbPilipinas2018
