Jaki’s designs is very unique, elegant and regal. Everytime I ask her to design for me or my husband Felix, it’s always stunning and she goes beyond my expectations. I feel confident and happy wearing her collection whether it’s an evening gown, Filipiniana or cocktail dresses. Filipinos or Canadians will usually commend the dress/gown I’m wearing and are amazed especially when they found out that its made of hablon. Thank you Jaki for always making me beautiful.
