The gown was designed by Kirsten Regalado, who explained her creation which she called the “Sunrise Gown” in her own Instagram post. “[The] ‘V’ design is symbolic for Victory. [It features the] #beautiful colors of our Philippine Flag. The reliability and tranquility of blue combined with the energy, confidence, and courage of red [define] a modern Filipina,” she said.
Rabiya is currently staying in Florida, United States to prepare for next month’s Miss Universe pageant and hopefully be the fifth Filipina beauty queen to win the coveted crown.
