In case you didn’t realize, Beyoncé herself has been dressed by a number of Filipino designers already.
Imagine getting a phone call on an average day from Beyoncé’s team asking YOU to design an original look? We’d fall right to our knees ASAP. Look, everything she touches turns into gold. Just the thought of Queen B wearing a piece that you’ve materialized from your thoughts can either send you on a spiral (willing to break our souls for Bey) or make you push yourself beyond your capabilities. For these Filipino designers though, they chose to rise to the challenge and absolutely delivered 100%. From Furne Amato’s Rococo look to the recent yellow feathered gown Beyoncé wore in Dubai, here’s a growing encyclopedia (claiming it!) of Filipino designers who’ve dressed her up.
BEYONCÉ WEARING CEBUANO DESIGNER FURNE ONE
Furne One is a world-renowned Filipino couturier based in Dubai. Hailing from Cebu, Furne’s Amato Couture House is known for the otherworldly, intricate handiwork in their designs that caught the eye of local and international celebrities—including Beyoncé. He first worked with her for the Mrs. Carter Tour in 2013, where she was photographed wearing two of his creations for her photobook. Two years later, she tapped the Filipino designer yet again to design a breathtaking cape that she wore for her Grammys 2015 performance of Take My Hand Precious Lord.
SHE WORE A HEAD PIECE BY FILIPINO-AMERICAN DESIGNER CHRIS HABANA
Filipino-American jewelry designer Chris Habana hasn’t been to the country since migrating to the US in 1989, but you can definitely see the strong influence in some of his works. Back in February, he designed a headpiece that resembled a golden halo for Beyoncé during her special performance in Dubai. The opera gloves, the impeccable beadwork on her corset, all painted in red was elevated even further by the Filipino-American designer’s work.
RYAN PACIOLES FROM LEYTE DESIGNED HER YELLOW FEATHERED GOWN IN DUBAI
Queen Bey just couldn’t get enough of the Filipino touch, can she? In another jaw-dropping look, she wore a yellow feathered gown for her Dubai performance designed by Ryan Pacioles of Atelier Zuhra. Born in Leyte, the Filipino designer eventually moved to Dubai and became the creative director of the Middle-Eastern couture house. The flawless corsetry and M slit really said, “give them lemonade!”
