Filipino Pride: Albert Andrada Exhibit at SM Seaside City Cebu

Albert Andrada dress for Miss Universe 2015

It's an Independence Day weekend for us in a few winks and it's also the perfect time to see one of the beauties that made the Philippines a standout for the whole world or universe even.

The iconic mermaid dress designed by Albert Andrada and worn by Pia Wurtzbach during the Miss Universe 2015 pageant is just an arms length away from anyone who wishes to see it because it's right here in Cebu City.

The dress that is literally a labor of love, sweat, and tears has come to Cebuano shores.  SM Seaside City Cebu is showcasing three dresses that renowned fashion designer, Albert Andrada deem as the most important creations of his career. He was gracious enough to  share to us bloggers the story behind choosing the dress. Pia's fierceness and elegance was magnified because of it and the rest is now part of our glory.

Standing next to the dresses Pia Wurtzbach wore was quite a feeling only pride and joy can possibly elicit.

Cebuanos can see Albert Andrada's creations at the Sea View Atrium of SM Seaside City Cebu until June 12, 2016.

Happy 118th Independence Day!
