Hello dear Sashes&Scripts readers!
This is your blogger, Jesson Capuchino signing off for a week to take a well-deserved blogbreak. Starting August 12 to 20, I won’t be posting anything new on the blog. That will give us all the time to revisit previous posts on my blog.
But don’t be alarmed or worried as I have a lot of things to talk about when I come back. I going to post the piece I wrote regarding Catriona Gray that was published on a Canadian paper, I will be sharing with you some illustrations I made on the wardrobe wishlist for Rachel Peters, and more! Plus write-ups on Paweensuda Drouin, Janela Joy Cuaton, Cynthia Thomalla, Laura Lehmann, Maria Poonlertlarp Ehren, Alicia Machado, Carolina Izsak, Gentlemen of the Philippines 2017, Mister Universal Ambassador, Miss International, Miss Earth and so much more! I will definitely be back with a bang!
Whenever Sash Factor and Sashes&Scripts receives help from people around us, we strive to make sure we show appreciation and our gratitude. Today is a post of just that: gratitude.
When we were struck by the untimely passing away of a beloved friend, it would have been difficult to claim the tickets he bought for the final had it not for the help of people close to us. The tickets through our Sash Factor Head, Larry Elima were given as a continuance of the yearly tradition to watch the pageant live. Those tickets were given to us for the Miss Universe pageant in Manila.
But this would not have been possible had it not been for the extremely gracious help extended to us of former Binibining Pilipinas Isabella Manjon, who thru her work connections was able to work around the SOPs on the ticket claiming. Our ticket was purchased for us by our dearly departed friend and his credit cards could not be brought to MOA for verification. The lovely beauty queen waited with our head Sir Brix Vera until the tickets were actually printed out and handed over to him. Now that is truly touching.
We will never forget this touching gesture by Isabella, especially in this time when we are mourning. You truly a one of a kind Binibini…
A post was made earlier on the Miss International official social media accounts which addresses the issue posted by a fake/ poser account impersonating a MI judge. Below is the said statement.
Dear Miss International fans,
Many of you have seen the recent negative social media post by the account “ambassadoracve” regarding the judging of Miss International.
This account is a false account impersonating one of the judges.
It is disappointing and unfortunate that this has happened and we are carrying out an investigation.
Miss International takes these matters extremely seriously and are doing all we can to resolve the issue.
We apologize for any confusion and send our sincere apologies to our judges. We appreciate the support and understanding from the public during this time.
Here is Sash Factor’s statement on the issue:
The Sash Factor Team has just received messages with regards to a controversial instagram post about Miss International judging. We at Sash Factor share the same core values of integrity, objectivity and cultural understanding with the organization. We fully support the organization’s effort in addressing this issue based on these values.
Sashes&Scripts supports the Miss International organization in this matter. We do not condone these acts of fool/s who have nothing to do except post vile and false news simply because they could not accept defeat. Our commitment to the Miss International pageant, its winners and its organization is as strong as ever.
We further support the coming legal action of the real MI judge who posted her support to the Miss International organization.
