Dubai-based multi-award winning fashion designer Michael Cinco has been honored with the Lifetime Achievement in Fashion Excellence award at The Global Filipino Icon Awards 2024.

The Filipino fashion designer received the award in a glittering ceremony at the Dusit Thani Dubai on Friday (May 17) with media icon Jessica Soho as the guest of honor. The award was handed by organizer The Global Filipino Magazine and its publisher Gabriel Rimando.

In his acceptance speech, Cinco dedicated his award to his parents: his late father who passed away last year and his mother who “worked really hard to support my dreams”. He also dedicated his award to the Filipino people.

Since relocating to Dubai in 2003, Cinco has carved a name for himself in haute couture, dressing numerous A-list celebrities from Hollywood to Bollywood and around the world, including Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Aishwarya Rai and Pia Wurtzbach.

His eponymous Michael Cinco Couture, with headquarters in Dubai’s Design District, is known for its luxurious and intricate couture designs from wedding dresses to ball gowns. One of his unique fashion pieces received a Guinness World Record as the world’s most expensive wedding gown, valued at $1.8 million and adorned with Swarovski crystals and intricate embroidery.
