Set at Hilton Manila, Michael Leyva showcases stunning bridal and debutante dresses in a much-anticipated fashion show called “Enchanted.”

Celebrating another milestone in his career, fashion designer Michael Leyva successfully had his first physical Manila fashion show since the pandemic started. Set in the prestigious Hilton Manila hotel, this event was graced by a limited number of guests, while thousands watched the show through the Facebook page of Getting Married Bridal Fair, who organized the November 13 show and bridal fair.

Coinciding with the fashion show was an online bridal fair, courtesy of Getting Married Bridal Fair, in cooperation with Hilton Manila. A coming together of some of the biggest names in the wedding and events industry, the country’s top suppliers were part of this event: Niceprint Photo, Shoepatos, LX events Pro, and KZ productions.

Meanwhile, event stylists like Gary Dacanay, Randy Lazaro, Jacqs Flora, Amante Fleurs, FJ Sionson, and Joyce Aguilar also showcased their beautiful creations through wedding-themed setups.

8 Gowns That I Loved From Michael Leyva’s Fashion Show

The bridal and debutante fashion show—aptly titled “Enchanted”—was truly enchanting, leaving everyone watching in awe. And in this event, Michael’s muses, who wore his best works, were present. These include Francine Diaz and Andrea Brillantes, along with Miss Universe Philippines 2022 winners and recent real-life bride Jasmine Maierhofer.

Michael Leyva’s collection was truly breathtaking! These were the 8 gowns that I loved from Michael Leyva’s latest collection:

Andrea Brillantes as a debutante in the red Michael Leyva gown. What’s there not to love? The red color stands out and the cut is truly pretty.
Loved the intricate details in this gown!
Every inch a princess, debutante Francine Diaz wore this purple gown so perfectly.
The cuts and lines in this gown are truly attractive.
There’s something so romantic about this dress. I also like how it stands out because of its short length and clean cut.
Especially love how this isn’t the usual white bridal gown. I like the faint color of pink seen in this design.
Sexy, romantic, and truly flattering for the modern bride.
Always a show highlight, Jasmine Maierhofer looked like she was floating on stage in this princess-inspired gown which sparkled and shined, thanks to the beautiful and intricate beadwork.

Congratulations on such a beautiful show, Michael!
