A creative teen in the Philippines has gone viral for making a dress fit for a princess for her high school graduation, after a professional did a “horrible” job to bring her vision to life.

On 7 April, Ciara Gan shared the feel-good story on Twitter, in a message that has already massively viral with more than 380,000 likes and 750-plus comments.

“I made and painted my own dress for my graduation ball! I painted more than 80 flowers, sewed [and] stoned my dress with my mom and we designed the whole thing himself!” the 17-year-old wrote online to share images of themselves in both the making and the modelling of elegant, strapless, turquoise number.

Social media commenters were quick to gush that Gan had truly chops to make it big in a competitive industry.

“The fashion industry needs someone like you,” one said.

“This is so wonderful,” another agreed.

“Hey @DisneyStudios , you have a new story for a new princess. The Painter, Princess,” another offered.

In a surprising turn of events, the rising style star appears that she initially had not planned to measure of the creation itself.

Gan told Fox 5 DC that although she and her mother spent thirteen metres of fabric, tulle and Swarovski crystals, a seamstress, “the dress ultimately terrible” – ask them to literally take matters into your own hands.

“My mother and I… sewed each panel of the skirt one-by-one (there are about 12-13 I think!) It took me about a whole month the time to see the whole thing (designing and drafting). For the painting, it took five days,” Gan said.

Herself, she dished that she was inspired to come up with the lush floral design by her mother, who pushed her to embrace the process of making her own dress in the first place.

“I wanted my dress to reflect my personality, so the lilies and the bright colors,” the teen told Fox 5. “My dress tells a very personal story about the things I hold close to my heart-lilies, the color green, painting, and creating new things.”

Although Gan said that they do not intend to study art at the university, she told a Twitter fan that she is “not saying no to [mode] opportunities” along the line.
