WATCH: Jessy Mendiola shares preview of trying on a dress for a civil wedding
MANILA – Jessy Mendiola posted a new vlog that gave a preview of her tailored dress for her civil wedding last February.
The actress visited the studio of Patricia Santos, her designer of choice for nearly a decade, to see what her wedding dress would look like.
“Ang gusto kasi natin sobrang simple lang, very classic,” she said.
When first fitted, Mendiola’s wedding dress was sleeveless, had a round neckline, and was slightly longer.
On her big day, it was transformed into a square neck maxi dress with sheer puffed sleeves, scoop back and pleated skirt.
Mendiola said the innings were among the last-minute additions she requested from Santos.
“The reason why I chose Patricia talaga kasi kilalang-kilala niya ‘yung katawan ko. I think this is one of the most important traits of a mapipili mo designer. Dapat alam niya kung anong sa’ yo, kung anong bagay her mo body type or mo body shape, ”she said.
“Whenever I say I’m not comfortable with something its katawan ko, alam na niya kung anong gagawin niya. Kaya rin ito ‘yung design na napili namin …’ Yung mga last minute na sleeves , details, “she added.
Santos is also set to create another dress for Mendiola’s second wedding, claiming it would be “very different” from his first creation.
The designer was also the one behind the actress’ wedding dresses.
“So Patricia got all the evening dresses. And I’m just happy to have been a milestone in what I’ve done with Pat,” Mendiola said.
