Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach made history as the first Miss Universe titleholder to be featured at the digital edition of the prestigious Arab Fashion Week.
Pia will be opening the Arab Fashion Week on March 24, wearing the avant-garde creation of fellow Filipino Furne One of Amato Couture, known as the “King of Couture” in Dubai and one of the favorite designers of Hollywood celebrities such as Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez and Nicki Minaj, to name a few.
The five-minute fashion film starring Pia paid sartorial homage to life beyond Earth — an exploration to the unknown dimension of life, a new beginning, a life after life.
For the fashion film, the team commissioned Dubai-based director Alex Suhorucov to create an imaginary world set in Sharjah’s Buhais Geology Park or also known as Mars in the UAE for its out-of-this-world rock formation and geological landscape.
Furne One’s collection is all-black, keeping his mysterious yet flamboyant outlook for Autumn/Winter 2021. The collection includes over-the-top ruffled gowns with soft laces, leather finishings and flowy ostrich faux feathers.
In a statement sent to Philstar.com, Yugen PR Dubai managing director Ian Borromeo said that the Dubai-based PR, marketing and talent agency has an exclusive partnership deal with Miss Universe titleholder Pia Wurtzbach to represent her in the Middle East region.
