On the other hand, Ducay, wore ocean tones with a splash of pink representing the elegance of a wave during the MUPH 2024 prelims.

Ducay dubbed her preliminary gown “Bawod.”

“Wave of Elegance: Drawing inspiration from ‘Bawod,’ the enchanting waves of Bantayan Island, this evening gown embodies the serene and dynamic beauty of the sea. The gown’s design features fluid, cascading lines that mimic the gentle rise and fall of ocean waves, creating a sense of movement and grace. Shimmering accents and delicate beadwork reflect the play of moonlight on the water, adding a touch of ethereal sparkle. The fabric flows effortlessly, much like the tranquil waves lapping against the island’s shore, making this gown a perfect blend of nature’s beauty and timeless elegance,” reads her caption.
