Miss Universe Fashion Show in Davao Cancelled

The Miss Universe Fashion Show in Davao was cancelled due to criticisms and controversies surrounding the event.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Tourism Undersecretary Kat De Castro announced that she is cancelling the Miss Universe fashion to be held in Davao City.

“As head of the ancillary events of the DOT for Miss Universe, I have decided to cancel the fashion show in Davao City,” said De Castro.

“This is to prevent controversies that may arise from the statement made by the local designers of Davao City. Thank you very much,” she added.

The move was after Davao Fashion and Design Council Foundation, Inc. (DFDCFI) felt snubbed for choosing Renee Salud to showcase his designs in the said event.
