Manila’s Best Dressed 2019 Youngest Awardee Rikki Mae Dela Pena
Manila’s Best Dressed-Honouring men and women of distinction who were selected for their accomplishments, services, excellence and fashion sense.
Being awarded as Manila’s Best Dressed 2019 means a lot to me especially being the youngest awardee. I’ve always been into fashion ever since I was young. I dreamt of being a fashion designer so I decided to take a short course at SoFA (school of fashion Design and Arts) before entering college.
Now that I am a youth role model, I want to make them believe that the way how a true Filipina dresses is still in our hearts. We are strong, independent and conservative indeed. In this year’s Manila’s Best Dressed, I tried to showcase all these characteristics through my gowns which were made by Edwin Uy, Randy Daleon Satin, Maricris Dela Peña, Jag Guevarra and Gerald Yacat Collections. A Modern Filipina.
