"This gown has a very humbling story. Despite constraints in resources, Angeiline Texon @bespokeangeiline, a Senior High School designer from Bataan, province of the Philippines, was able to make this work of art come to life. This was made only for two (2) days, shortly before I left for Poland, using a sewing machine donated by the government ( 4P's -Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program) to the poor constituents. It warms my heart that such simple pieces achieve tremendous feat and are recognized internationally (bagging the first-runner-up for Miss Elegance of Miss Supranational 2021) . With this is my OVERFLOWING GRATITUDE to ALL THE PEOPLE BEHIND every step of my way, then and beyond. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. "
