Dubai-based Filipino fashion designer Michael Cinco has been conquering the international fashion scene.
The 45-year-old couturier from Samar, best known for his couture gowns and their intricate details, is the first-ever Filipino whose creations were showcased during Paris Fashion Week, one of the A-list fashion shows in the world.
Cinco has also dressed up Hollywood stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Mila Kunis, Beyonce, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, and Sofia Vergara, among many others.
Locally, he's also been the go-to designer of stars during major events. Here are the celebrities who have become his clients.

If there's one lady in showbiz who has worn the most number of Cinco creations, it will be the Kapuso Primetime Queen.
One of the most talked-about was her wedding gown which reportedly cost around two million pesos!
The Encantadia actress also wore his gowns during her prenup shoot in Dubai back in 2014.
When she was inducted in FHM Philippines' Hall of Fame in July 2016, she wore one of Cinco's collaboration with Couturissimo, a website carrying exclusive collections crafted by iconic designers.
