His formal fashion feats

Being one of the current generation’s most sought-after actors, it comes as no surprise to witness the Kapuso star gracing various prestigious gatherings. When asked about their pre-event preparations, Macky reveals, “He normally gives me his opinion on how he wants to appear at the occasion. We then exchange ideas, which I may use to create the greatest possible look.” He also stresses that their primary objectives remain consistent: ensuring the attire resonates with the actor’s persona and gives him a sense of confidence and comfort.

One of their standout moments has to be Miguel’s suave presence at the first GMA Gala Ball, where he donned an exquisitely beaded Michael Cinco ombré suit, which undoubtedly ranks among the night’s most memorable ensembles. Furthermore, his choice of attire at the Voltes V Legacy premiere, featuring an Alambrè burgundy captain suit, is equally commendable. The outfit clearly achieved their aim which was to bring a contemporary twist into a classic look.

For days when a more easygoing vibe is in order, Macky noted that they keep things uncomplicated and gravitate towards classic casual attire. Yet, he clarified,  “We choose a more relaxed approach, [but still] conveys his personality and is effortlessly fashionable for [laid-back] occasions.”

Strategic embellishments

While they fully grasp the transformative potential of accessories, Macky emphasized that he advises Miguel to skip them when the outfit itself is already a statement. He noted, “If further pieces are required, a straightforward necklace and several rings will finish the overall look.” However, when it comes to performance attire, that’s the time they boldly experiment with striking accents, be it necklaces, belts, or harnesses—any additional accessories that contribute to the overall look are welcome, as long as Miguel feels confident in them.
