Michael Cinco receives standing ovation in Paris Fashion Week

Part of the collection showcased by Michael Cinco at Paris: Haute Couture was the Couture BANIG and SOLIHIYA, "made from peals, sequins, and micro beads...all made by hand," he said on Instagram.

Currently making waves at the Paris Fashion Week: Haute Couture is Michael Cinco, a Dubai-based Filipino designer.

On July 3, Cinco received a standing ovation for the 30 couture dresses and gowns he showcased on the ramp at L’Orangerie Ephmre in Le Jardin des Tuileries.

Here's a peek:

1. His pret-a-porter collection for COUTURiSSIMO, an online fashion brand which taps exceptional designers to create couture-inspired pieces at ready-to-wear prices.

These beautiful pieces were inspired by the stunning flowers of the Jardin des Tuileries, which he described, "a very inspiring and beautiful place."

They can now be pre-ordered at www.COUTURiSSIMO.com.

The maxi-version of these dresses costs $439 or P20,584.

2. Inspired by Spanish Mantilla, he called this "Couture CALADO Collection."

3.. This one pays homage to his Pinoy roots: "Couture BANIG and SOLIHIYA collection made from peals, sequins, and micro beads...all made by hand."

He told The National, "The whole experience is a dream come true.

"I cried a little before and after the show.

"The entire process has been such an emotional journey for me.

"I’m so very thankful for such a humbling opportunity."

Cinco's creations have been worn by Kylie Minogue, Jennifer Lopez, Mila Kunis, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Christina Aguillera, Nicole Schezinger, to name a few.
