An award-winning fashion designer for Miss World Philippines 2011 as well as a highly
recognized image consultant, Delby Bragais specializes in wedding gowns and custom-made
dresses for special occasions with an organic made-by-hand feel. Using hand-woven fabrics,
hand-made embellishments, and hand-guided embroidery or hand-beading, Bragais blends
different fabrics and textures to create clothing for women who not only “dare to be
different”, but also want an oeuvre that emphasizes creativity and sophistication.
Bragais has had fashion shows in Syracuse, New York, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Singapore and
her native Philippines. She has been featured in major dailies-the Manila Bulletin, the
Philippine Star and the Philippine Daily Inquirer. Her Wedding Gowns have been featured in
Bridal Magazines such as Wedding Essentials, Metro Weddings, Wedding Digest and the Asian
Bride. She is also a popular television and radio resource person in the fields of fashion and
As a little girl, Delby remembers a school activity where her teacher asked the class to bring
their most beautiful dress for a parade. It was only after all her classmates had put on their
princess like gowns that Delby realized that what she had was a yellow nightgown. This was
her first experience of feeling” not enough" as she promised herself that she would not want
for dresses again. This memory has also made her recognize that, no doubt, there are many
other women who feel “not beautiful enough” or “not rich enough” or “not good
enough”. This has inspired Bragais to reinvent herself and become the highly recognized
fashion designer and image consultant she is today. Her motto reflects her conviction that
“with Hope, dreams do come true...”.
Bragais graduated cum laude from the University of the Philippines with a master’s degree in
business administration. A product of the Fashion Institute of Technology in continuing
education, Bragais is the author of the book “The Purple Pig Wears Red Lipstick” and the
creator of the “Purple Power Program” for personal and business success. Bragais is the
recipient of AICI (Association of Image Consultants International) Award of Excellence and the
2015 AICI President’s Award for outstanding contribution to the Image Industry.
