WHAT IS YOUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY AS A BRIDAL DESIGNER?
I always mix modern applications with very feminine silhouettes.
WHAT IS THE SIGNATURE FLAIR THAT IMMEDIATELY CHARACTERIZES YOUR WEDDING GOWN CREATIONS?
My signature silhouette is the basic one but I always play with texture. I love mixing materials from illusion tulle to ostrich feathers to pleats and drapings.
HOW EARLY BEFORE THE WEDDING DO CLIENTS HAVE TO APPROACH YOU?
It depends. I have clients who come in one year before, or 8 to 6 months before the wedding.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU HAVE TO MEET CLIENTS REGARDING THEIR WEDDING GOWN DESIGNS?
Maximum of two times.
HOW OFTEN DOES A CLIENT HAVE TO VISIT YOU FOR FITTINGS?
Three to four times.
ON AVERAGE, HOW LONG DOES A WEDDING GOWN TAKE TO MAKE?
It depends also on the design. Sometimes 3 months to 5 months.
WHAT ARE THE PRICE POINTS OF A PUEY QUIÑONES WEDDING GOWN?
My wedding gowns start at P90,000, and my package starts at P250,000. I also do men’s suits, which start at P35,000.
OUT OF ALL THE WEDDINGS YOU'VE DESIGNED FOR, ARE THERE ANY SPECIFIC ONES YOU LOVE OR ARE DEARLY MEMORABLE TO YOU?
Every wedding gown I make is always memorable. I give all my best every time I make one—I work on it as if it’s my wedding gown.
ANY POINTERS PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HAVING YOU AS THEIR BRIDAL DESIGNER?
A bride should know what she wants. And most importantly she should know which designer best suits her personality.
