Dubai Designer Dressed Celebs at MTV Awards
Furne One has made Dubai fashion history as one of the first designers in
the region to dress celebs at the MTV Video Music Awards. The Filipino designer
who already has an A-list following including Heidi Klum has now added firm
favourites, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj to his list of clients.
“Katy was wearing Versace and then she changed to Dior and then she wore my
dress… that’s massive,” Furne told Gulf News. “The brief I was given was that
Katy was breaking records and that I had to create something to represent that.”
Furne had two weeks to create the black and white jewel-encrusted dress.
Furne also designed Nicki Minaj’s MTV dress for the Sunday night (28 August)
event but she wanted “futuristic Barbie”.
Katy Perry scored the night’s biggest award, Video of the Year, on Sunday
night (28 August).
