Here is a closer look at the gown:
Mak recently shared his gown design sketches for Catriona, but decided to keep her final gown look a secret:
In a Facebook post, Mak Tumang cited Mayon Volcano as inspiration for Catriona's final gown: "Today, Catriona is coming home. She is celebrating her roots—she is celebrating Albay! The prominent and iconic Mayon Volcano is the penultimate inspiration for this creation. It is dubbed as the ‘perfect cone’ because of its symmetric conical form. Folk tales have it that it was named after the mythological heroine ‘Daragang Magayon’ (Beautiful Lady). Despite its pulchritude is the fact that it is the most active volcano in the Philippines erupting numerous times in the past half a millennium. Catriona can be considered as the modern-day Daragang Magayon. She embodies the Filipina’s beauty, intelligence and burning passion. This lady is definitely on fire! Watch her erupt right before your very eyes and let the lava of grace, goodness and hope flow."
