How to Look Élan in Every Occasions Wearing Mark Bumgarner Designs

How to Look Élan in Every Occasions Wearing Mark Bumgarner Designs
This is another day to celebrate Filipino Designers and make the Philippine fashion known to the rest of the world!

As much as I like the Italian dresses (yeah that Dolce & Gabbana Collection is divine!) I also admire some Filipino designs, and I think they are worth it.

Philippines are known for a country with many talented people in all sorts of industry, and that’s amazing. And in fashion industry, we have tons of very talented designers that even the likes of Blair Waldorf (of Gossip Girls) and socialite Astrid Leong (of Crazy Rich Asians) will surely give their approvals.

Not to shades the dresses from the recent Cannes Festival, I just find the dresses in Cannes so tacky and distasteful. A woman should dress mysteriously and should be oozing with glamour, and it shouldn’t be exposing her body like a Statue of David.

Yeah maybe am a guniang (Singaporean word which means lady-like) with a conservative taste, but not exactly – I just love women dressing-up like it is always a gala night with class, and not a woman that is so depressing to catch a man’s attention by exposing their bum. (eck!)

Mark Bumgarner designs are created using Mikado silk and some French lace with lots of beadings and Swarovski crystals all embroidered on its designs.

Check some of his collection, all handmade in the Philippines with his talented seamstresses.

Mark Bumgarner Chanel Gown $3600 (left) and – crafted in Mikado silk which features a V-Neckline, a sleeveless silhouette, and a tiered ankle length skirt.

Called as Ava Gown (left) and Grace Gown (right), these dresses suddenly reminds me of an Oriental Thai Princess and I could imagine my favorite belle Chalita Suansane wearing this. The exquisite little blooms designs and flawless silhouettes, this dress is a huge hit. And whoever wears this dress will totally catch the crowd.


Mark Bumgarner Designs
Belle Gown $9000 – If Belle lives today, definitely she could wear something much modern and not those too fluffy yellow skirt. A lady deserves a golden dress, and a sunshine yellow that can only be worn during daytime at the beach front.


Mark Bumgarner Designs
Fleur Gown $10,200 – This dress definitely screams French! Love the intricate embroidery and the beadings, and its elegant silhouette to die for. Blair Waldorf will be so proud when you wear this dress. And finally got your own Chuck Bass and of course with limo.


Mark Bumgarner Designs
Kelly Jumpsuit $3600 – also crafted in Mikado silk, this Mark Bumgarner designed jumpsuit features a plunging v-neckline, lace balloon style sleeves, and a straight legs. It was ornate with France lace, and numbers of beads and Swarovski crystals on its embroidered design. I could imagine my favorite Gretchen Baretto wearing this jumpsuit because she got that oozing confidence, that saying “you don’t mess with me bitch” LOL


Mark Bumgarner Designs
Harriett Dress $4,500 – And if you want to recreate your debutante-moment, then this dress is perfect!


Mark Bumgarner Designs
Ingrid Dress $5,400 (left) and Lana Gown $5,400 (right) – another golden dresses fit for all ladylike.


Mark Bumgarner Designs
Vera Gown $4,500 – I love this dress! The simplicity of the skirt and the designs makes it more seductive and alluring and not compromising its inner beauty. And even you are a pregnant Momma, you will still looked like a Goddess in this dress.


Mark Bumgarner Designs
Sophia Gown $7,500 – Love this dress, so feminine and alluring and if you decide to have a spring out door themed wedding them you can have this dress!



Overall, this Mark Bumgarner newest collection is totally magnificent and it could make very woman’s dream come true.

Well, just don’t let Bella Hadid wear any of these pieces because that’s a different story. It would be disrespectful, SERIOUSLY!

xoxo, Blair
