Vincent Bueno, Austria’s representative for Eurovision 2021, has revealed that his Eurovision outfit has been designed by Michael Cinco. Michael Cinco is a Dubai-based Filipino designer.
Michael is renowned for his work which has been worn by stars such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Jason Derulo and many more. His work has also been showcased within the Miss Universe pageant. Most notably, his work was worn at the 2016 pageant by Pia Wurtzbach, who won Miss Universe 2015 for the Philippines.
In an interview with PeopleAsia, Michael Cinco said:
“I just want to help him with his costume. Even though he is already an Austrian representing a European country and not the Philippines, I still consider him a world-class Filipino talent deserving of support. His good showing in Eurovision would eventually benefit not only Austria, but also the Philippines.”
On their collaboration, Vincent also expressed his excitement:
“What a wonderful, humble person Michael is. It’s truly an honor for me to be working with him.”
