Zee Lifestyle Magazine orchestrates a fashionable homecoming for Furne One, a Dubai- based fashion designer who is one of the most anticipated personalities in the industry. As a grand finale to Zee Fashion Forward, Furne One Finally transforms the Rizal Library Ballroom into a couture runway on September 7, showcasing the designer’s dramatic and intricate pieces in Furne’s first show in Cebu.
The show is a fitting return for Furne, who will be staying at Marco Polo Plaza Cebu for his stay. Cebu is, after all, where he started his career before going on to win the MEGA Young Designer of the Philippines Award and Japan’s Women’s Wear Award in 1994.
“Furne One is a Cebuano who is making waves in the global fashion scene. There’s no doubt that he is Cebu’s and the country’s pride,” says Melo Eguerra, the guest editor for Zee Lifestyle’s fashion issue this year. “His haute couture creations are not only worn by royalty in the Middle East, but also by international celebrities like Heidi Klum, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry, to name a few. His Dubai-based label Amato is synonymous to decadence and grandeur that elevates fashion into art. And Furne has never had a gala show in his hometown since he left Cebu and conquered the world, so it’s about time we did this!”
Furne won over the European market with his multiple appearances on Germany’s Next Top Model with Heidi Klum, and has moved on to Hollywood with a clientele like those mentioned above, as well as Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Nicole Scherzinger who chose his dresses for their red carpet and stage performances. His extravagant pieces have also found their way on music videos and stylized fashion editorials, like a glittering bridal gown he created for Swarovski’s limited edition book Unbridaled. And with such an outstanding track record, the plans of opening Furne’s first US store in Los Angeles will only catapult him further into international recognition. Cebuanos can at last see the world-class designer’s creations for themselves at Furne One Finally to appreciate the excellent craftsmanship and fine details. Besides Furne’s exquisite frocks, models will also be walking the runway wearing pieces from Jewelmer. “Furne One’s show will be a celebration of Cebu creativity and talent,” says Melo. “Cebuanos can expect only the best from Furne One. His collection will definitely inspire the audience to dream bigger and aspire to lead an extraordinary life.” A limited number of tickets are available for sale at P5,000, which includes cocktails prior to the show, and post-show drinks courtesy of Grey Goose.
