Who is Furne One?


Heidi Klum with Furne One

Furne One is a famous designer in the international scene who has made wonderful creations for supermodel, Heidi Klum. He has been in Dubai for over 10 years now designing his imaginative, genius and dazzling creations for the elite Arabic women. He may sound foreign, he may look foreign with his blonde hair and curls but he is a Filipino.

The creative nature of a Filipino will be unveiled by One on his debut presentation in Manila, his first ever Philippine gala show entitled "First of One - A Fashion Collection by Furne One" on October 9, 2010, 7pm at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel.

Tessa Prieto-Valdes and Kaye Tinga


This event is organized by two of the most well-known fundraisers, fashion lovers who has the heart for the Filipino people, Philippine Daily Inquirer's society columnist Tessa Prieto-Valdes and philanthropist Kaye Tinga.

Why did they choose One?

According to Tessa, she first heard of One from the MEGA Young Designer of the Philippines Award in which he won. When she saw his collection, she felt that it was larger than life and it matches her personality. She said that he was the one who made Kim Chiu's gown during the 4th Star Magic Ball. She also loves the heavy beading of Swarovski crystals that One does in his creations. She said, "Maybe the gown is as heavy as my weight." I can imagine how much Swarovski crystals are sewn onto the gown!

Kaye Tinga told us that we'll be the first who will be able to see these collection before being shown to the Dubai Fashion Week.

"First of One" features One's latest 50-piece collection, "Wars and Roses," which highlights lavish and intricate details. His collection is inspired by Queen Elizabeth I who is the 15th to 16th century matriarch of the Golden Age of England.

Directing the show will be Ariel Lozada who also directed this year's Bench Uncut.


Due to public demand, there will be another show the next day for students who won't be able to attend the ball since the tickets are P1,000 each and for a table, it is P10,000. However, please take note that this is all for charity. Proceeds from the show is for the benefit of the Philippine National Red Cross-Rizal Chapter and the Assumption High School Batch 1981 Foundation.
