The news of MayMay becoming the first Filipino celebrity to walk the Arab Fashion Week runway broke five days ago when Filipino fashion designer Furne One—a visionary who's dressed the likes of Katy Perry and Beyonce and the founder of Amato Couture—announced it on Instagram. And when it's Instagram official, there's no way that it could be a hoax, or just a fleeting dream. 

 

EXCLUSIVE: Maymay Entrata Is Local Fashion's Newest Celebrity Muse

 

The multi-talented MayMay's fans were hot on her heels to congratulate her and spread the word, making sure that their idol would feel their love from the Philippines all the way to Dubai, where she'll make her international runway debut at the prestigious fashion event just hours from this writing.  (They obviously did a good job, as the hashtag #MAYMAYForAmatoAFW2018 is currently at the top spot for trending Twitter topics). 

 

 

It's a fantasy come true for the 21-year-old who had aspirations of becoming a model years before fame knocked on her door. Her skyrocketing to the top tier of show business has yet to show signs of plateauing (if any, that is), but with projects and collaborators of every sort and kind lining up to work with this beauty, it definitely appears that "slowing down" is absent from MayMay's professional vocabulary.

In a show of his support for her, Edward Barber, otherwise known as the other half of the beloved MayWard love team, was reported to fly in to Dubai today along with his sister in time for MayMay's show. Known to be prepared with surprises for his leading lady, this pair's fans are sure to be waiting for anything he might have up his sleeve for this extra special occasion.

When it comes to the pieces that MayMay is set to model, we've been given a first look by none other than Furne One himself.

A photo on the designer's Instagram Stories features MayMay in an intricately embellished and voluminous ball gown in an icy hue, one assumed to be one of the many dresses she tried on during her series of fittings. Whether it's an accurate preview of the official styles she'll don on the runway or just a clever ploy to mislead excited fans, only time will tell. 

 

 

Luckily, for MayMay's biggest fans, they won't have to wait too long. Their fave girl is well on her way to making history and is rehearsing for her walk right at this very moment, as these snaps reveal.
