Catriona Gray has been promoting Filipino fashion at the pre-pageant activities of Miss Universe 2018.

The 24-year-old Filipino-Australian beauty queen has been on top of the OOTD game in Bangkok, Thailand, in outfits crafted by Filipino designers and artisans.

Last Friday, November 30, Catriona wore a "white alligator metallic jacquard pattern dress" by celebrity fashion designer Noel Crisostomo.

The highlight of her outfit was actually her "Jessica" handbag from Calli Bags. The bag is made of rattan, and features beaded details inspired by the Sampaguita flower.

Catriona completed her look with accessories from Cru Manila and custom-made shoes by Jojo Bragais.

She was styled by Vhee Co, Francis Chee, and Justine Aliman.

On Saturday, December 1, the 24-year-old beauty queen was spotted wearing a skirt made with T'Boli prints.

The skirt was made by Davao-based Wilson Niño Franco Limon, an award-winning fashion designer known for his eponymous brand NiñoFranco.

Catriona shared a photo of her OOTD on Instagram and wrote, "Just fitted my Thai Silk dress for Thai night... can't wait for you all the see the beautiful pieces!!! Styled by @ton_lao @justine.aliman19 in a skirt with T'boli embroidery."


Stylists Justine Aliman and Ton Lao teamed up to create her look.

On Sunday, December 2, Catriona toured the Siam Snail Eco Farm in Bangkok wearing a Kababayan jacket by Lahi.

Lahi is a clothing line designed by Mia Arcenas, Solenn Heussaff, and Vavi Heussaff-Small.

Underneath the jacket, Catriona wore a bustier top designed by Edgar Madamba, which was made with Inabel fabric from Ilocos.
