Pageant news streaming in got us feeling excited! First it was our very own Catriona Gray jetting off to Bangkok, Thailand. Second, we find out Miss Japan Yuumi Kato opted to work with Filipino fashion designers for all her looks.
Luis Carlo San Juan forLifestyle Inquirer broke the news that Yuumi, along with their national director Hiroko Mima (Miss Japan for Miss Universe 2008), wanted to go a different path from the usual European designer dresses. Hiroko believes in working with Asian designers because they always have a way to make a woman feel sexy and elegant. Filipino designers in particular have a way of combining western and eastern styles—plus the fact that they are very well versed in the pageant world.
