Filipino couturiers Michael Cinco and Furne One Amato have won top accolades in this year’s prestigious EMIGALA fashion awards held in Dubai.
The Dubai-based fashion designers received the highest honors at the EMIGALA dinner, presented by the Distinctive International Arab Festivals Awards (DIAFA) at the Hilton Hotel in Al Habtoor City, Dubai on July 14, 2021.
In his speech, Michael Cinco dedicated his Fashion Designer of the Year Award to his team and honored individuals who have lost their lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I’d like to share this award to all the people who lost their lives, who had a difficult time during this pandemic,” Michael Cinco said.
“But my heart is full of happiness tonight because in spite of the difficult and challenging times that we’re facing right now in the world, we are here gathered tonight celebrating life, hope, beauty, and fashion,” Cinco added.
On his official Instagram account, Amato Couture’s Furne Amato shared about winning the International Fashion Designer of the Year and Fashion Innovator award with Cinco.
“So humbled and honoured to receive the highest award given at the Emi Gala — International Fashion Designer of the Year and Fashion Innovator!” Furne One wrote.
The nominees and winners of the EMI Gala fashion awards categories were chosen objectively by a selected committee of high-profile experts in the fashion industry.
The EMI Gala is a uniquely organized and luxurious fashion awards gala dinner presented annually by the DIAFA in Dubai to highlight cultural diversity in the United Arab Emirates while honoring the most prominent figures in the fashion industry.
Filipina Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach and world-renowned fashion designers Furne One and Michael Cinco headlined the Arab Fashion Week (AFW) this year. Furne One had previously showcased Maymay Entrata as the 1st Pinay model at the same fashion event in 2018.
