Michael Cinco has certainly had a busy and productive year. Back in July, the Dubai-based Filipino designer flew to the City of Lights during Couture Week to present his Fall/Winter 2016 collection. It was also this year that Cinco moved to his new home in Dubai Design District, and Savoir Flair is giving you an exclusive first look.
Despite all of his achievements and extensive experience in the industry, it’s worth mentioning that behind those oversized sunglasses – a signature look – is a very warm, funny, and admirable designer. He comes into the office every day at 10 a.m. and loves to work, getting his hands as dirty as possible. Scroll through the gallery and get to know more about Cinco as he gives us a tour of his beautiful space, set right in the heart of creative hub d3.

“I have a collection of dark glasses in different shapes and sizes on my table, and I usually wear them according to the personality of the client I’m facing.”
“My new showroom in d3 has almost the same interior as my previous one. The only difference is that this is more spacious.”
“The office has a beautiful ambience, which is very important for inspiring workplace creativity.”
“I love the huge space, the natural light coming from the wide windows, the walls, and the lighting of my new atelier.”
“The first thing I do when I arrive at the office is check my schedule and appointments for the day.”
“I usually spend most of my time in the production area – that’s where the whole Michael Cinco team creates magic.”
