Finally, Isabelle Duterte’s photographer has spoken to clarify issues raised by critics surrounding the Malacanang fashion shoot of the president’s grand daughter.
Isabelle Duterte has been subjected to harsh criticism from her Lolo’s detractors after the Malacanang photo shoot went viral on social media.
Some critics even went to the extent of insinuating that Isabelle’s expensive accessories and designer gowns were bought from ‘shabu smuggling’.
Tell your Dad and Lolo to #SignTheWaiver @isabelleduterte or you admit your P145k Celine tote, Rolex watch & 4 gowns are from his shabu smuggling. How can he afford all that w- P81k/month VM's salary BEFORE tax? Sige nga. Do something USEFUL & EXPLAIN how.

While some suggested that the Malacanang fashion photo shoot was not allowed by law as per Executive Order signed by former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2004, ‘prescribing the design and use of the coat-of-arms, seal, and flag of the President and Vice President of the Philippines, and for other purposes’.
According to the section 3 of the E.O: “Permitted and Prohibited Uses of the Heraldic Symbols of the President and the Vice President of the Philippines. Except as otherwise provided by law or Presidential issuance, the Coat-of-Arms, Seal, and Flag of the President of the Philippines or of the Vice President of the Philippines shall be exclusively used to represent the President of the Philippines or the Vice President of the Philippines, respectively.”
Meanwhile, Lito Sy, family friend of Isabelle Duterte’s mother and the professional photographer behind the Malacanang photo shoot took to Facebook to clear up the issue, particularly the gown and expensive jewelry issue.
So everyone would know……..
Nabasa ko lang sa fb page ng isang influencer about the negative write up of Isabelle Duterte’s pre debut shoot in Malacañang. Nakakaawa naman ang dalaga sa mga paninirang di totoo. Ang bait and very down to earth ang dalaga. I felt sorry sa mga taong sumusulat ng di nila alam ang real story kundi hakahaka lang lahat masira lang reputation ng mga Dutertes. Ito po ang totoo:
I Do not charge 250k for a predebut shoot. Wow! How I wish. Yung shoot po nayun is free since the mom of Isabelle is a very good friend of mine in Davao during early 90s. Ang red gown na ginamit was sent through LBC from Dubai na sponsored din ng Dubai based davao designer na good friend din ng Mom ni Isabelle noong di pa siya sikat. The other gowns were provided po ni Jeff Galang na stylist kung saan hinihiram din nya from famous designers in exchange for credits and milage lang. Ang nga mamahaling shoes are pinagamit sa kanya ng ibat ibang brands para makilala kasi nga artista na si Isabelle under Viva. Ang bayad lang po sa predebut shoot was Jeff Galang at 25k and the nake up artist na si Winn Ramos. Di po si Paolo Duterte ang nagbayad sa suppliers kasi may kaya naman po si Mommy ni Isabelle na isang business woman. So please sana sa mga gustong manira sa mga Dutertes sana alamin nyo muna ang totoong kwento bago kayo manghusga. Pls share na lang po.
