Kapamilya star Joshua Garcia is taking his ABS-CBN Ball preparations to a new level this year, inspired by Julia Barretto's pre-ball rituals.

As he prepared for the Ball, which gathers the country's most-admired celebrities, Garcia said that while he did not make any extravagant preparations, he wanted to do something different, inspired by Barretto's always on-point style.

To prepare for the ABS-CBN Ball, Garcia said he worked with designer Joey Espiritu to tailor a special look. His hair will also be styled a bit differently, he said. 

"Nagsabihan kami kung ano ang magandang gawin sa suit. Style pa rin niya ang ginamit ko. Noong nakita ko ang suit, sobrang excited akong isuot dahil bago siya sa paningin," he said.

He is looking forward to the ABS-CBN Ball, he said, because it is part of a year which has been “blessed.”

“Yung year na ito para sa amin, maganda ito. Mixed emotions, lahat ng emosyon andun. This year, masasabi kong na-bless kami. Pinatatag kami. Mas lumalim ang samahan namin saka ang pagkakakilala namin sa isa't isa,” he said.

He was especially thankful that workwise, he and Barretto have also been lucky in getting the trust of international mobile brand OPPO. 

“Sobrang blessed namin, mapa-work, endorsement. Nagugulat na lang kami na 'Thank God, may tiwala itong brand na ito sa amin.' Thankful kami…I'm very happy to be part of the OPPO family, and thankful ako na sa dinamiraming artista, sa amin nagtiwala ni Julia,” he said.

Garcia is expected to walk the red carpet with rumored girlfriend Barretto, who is often counted among the best-dressed stars in the glittering event.

Last year, the couple—affectionately called ‘JoshLia’ by fans—arrived together in contrasting outfits. Garcia wore an elegant all-black suit by Joey Espiritu, while Barretto wore an eye-catching pearl-white Mark Bumgarner dress.
