As a wedding photographer, you get to see and appreciate so many wedding gowns. I believe Filipino wedding designers are one of the best when it comes to making beautiful and creative wedding gowns. Designers like Veluz and Cecilio Abad have set the gold standard in wedding gowns in the Philippines. They never fail to amaze me and I always get excited seeing their work since they always create something new and different.
While surfing through my google reader, which is like an online newspaper where you can compile all your favorite blogs and keep up to date with recent posts in one site, I discovered Michael Cinco also does weddings gowns. He’s a Filipino based in Dubai who became popular when his work was featured in Tyra Bank’s Americas Next Top Model.
Weddingbellsblog.com, where I discovered Michael’s feature, best describes his wedding gowns, “I’ve long been a fan of Filipino haute couture designer Micahel Cinco, but it didn’t occur to me to see if he does wedding gowns until today. Born in the Philippines and currently based in Dubai, Michael Cinco’s enchanting gowns are faithful to the Middle Eastern bride’s preference for over-the-top detailing and “more is more” philosophy. Though I prefer simple, laid-back wedding dresses myself, these gowns are a true work of art and deserve to be appreciated regardless of what your personal tastes in bridal wear might be.” For the feature head on over to Michael Cinco: Wedding Gowns for the Oppulent Bride
If you’re a bride who wants something cool and edgy, i think Michael’s gown is right up that alley or get inspiration from his designs. Visit www.michaelcinco.com to see more of his works.
