LOOK: Catriona Gray’s lava gown inspires face mask worth P25,000
Mak Tumang has ventured into designing face masks, with creations inspired by his work on Catriona Gray’s lava gown in the 2018 Miss Universe beauty pageant.
The fashion designer shared his offerings on Instagram last June 30, announcing that he was accepting pre-orders and worldwide shipping.
Among the masks, the Lava Luxe steals the show because of the beading that replicates Gray’s iconic gown — and its cost of P25,000.
Tumang also offers other washable masks, with one set worth P1,500. Should it come in a signature box, the same set costs P2,000.
The designer is a frequent collaborator of the Miss Universe titleholder and has created multiple gowns for her that carry themes inspired by the Philippines. For instance, the lava gown is based on the Mayon Volcano.
Other local designers have also focused their talents on clothing that addresses safety concerns during the coronavirus pandemic. Mich Dulce partnered with the Office of the Vice President to produce protective suits for frontliners, while Michael Cinco has made lab gowns for frontliners in the United Arab Emirates. JB
