When I found out Dubai-based designer Furne One was to return to his hometown Cebu for a fashion show, I was thrilled. I am a big fan of the talented couturier, ever since I saw his work some years ago. His attention to detail is just remarkable. Intricate beadwork and embellishment seems to be his specialization. And he is one of the few designers who really knows how to make a gown look spectacular.
I joined the TRESemme team for this trip. And though we only stayed in Cebu for one night, the event was truly memorable. Here are photos from the show.

Models for the show. They wore blonde wigs that really captured the overall feel of the designs.

The makeup look was all about strong, dark eyes.
Furne One’s latest collection is sculptural and beautiful.
The strong shoulder and elaborate beadwork make these gowns exceptional.
More incredible, unique designs.

Up close, you can see the gown’s amazing beadwork.
This one looked particularly dark but still divine.
