Mutya Crisostomo


Mutya is the daughter of Tony Ferrer a popular movie actor and producer and the beauty queen Alice Crisostomo, the Mutya ng Pilipinas. She also won the title in 1992.

At 14 however, Mutya realized that success was something she had to work for. Her parents separated after 18 years of marriage, leaving her and brother Falcon the products of a broken home.
Because of hurt ego, Alice tried to be independent. As a result, she and Mutya had to work to support their new “family.”
“Malaki ang hirap ni Mutya sa amin,” she admits. “Siya ang nagpa-aral sa kanilang magkapatid. At 14, she was the family’s breadwinner. Ako naman ang kanyang mother, secretary, manager, driver, lahat na.”
Having been born in a family of filmmakers, Mutya decided to help her family, the only way she knew – via show business.
Thanks to her fine lineage, she was an instant star, first at GMA-7’s “That’s Entertainment” and later, as a contract star of Viva Films.
She belonged to the first batch of “That’s Entertainment” stars who became the idols of the ’80s: Jean Garcia, Ana Abiera, Nadia Montenegro, Sheryl Cruz, Lotlot de Leon, Tina Paner, Donita Rose and Manilyn Reynes. “Pero ’di niya pinabayaan ang pag-aaral,” Alice adds. “After her classes, takbo kami sa “That’s…”
In the process, Mutya became a role model to other stars who did not let go of their studies despite hectic showbiz commitments. “Yung mga teachers, sabi nila Jennifer (Sevilla), ginagawa daw example si Mutya nung mga professors sa UST. ’Di nagpapabaya sa studies.”
Under Viva Films, Mutya did “Wolly Bolly,” “Row 4: Baliktorians” (1993), “Apoy sa Puso” (1992), “Ngayon at Kailanman” (1992), “Tag-araw, Tag-ulan” (1992), “Wooly Booly 2: Ang Titser Kong Alien” (1990), “Valentina” (1989), “Rock-a-Bye Baby: Tatlo ang Daddy” (1988), among others.
“Matagal din siya sa showbiz, almost six years din. She quit when she was 20,” Alice continues.
Mutya’s exit from showbiz marked the beginning of her new conquest, as a beauty queen.
After appearing in the movies, Mutya worked in Singapore as global brand manager of Pond;s Unilever. After giving birth to Mayumi, her daughter with her husband Genesis "Jiggoy Buensuceso, a designer, she quit the corporate life andwent into business roducing baby products which she herself designed. 
Now she is supplying customers in different countries.

Spinkie branched into soft toys and a fashion line for girls, specializing in reversible frocks. Through her network, Mutya was able to get American models and a photographer for the images of Spinkie. She will introduce ruffled fashion liners to cover diapers. With the birth of her son, Malaya, she will embark on a boys’ apparel line.
