The contemporary Filipino fashion perspective –

From the terno to the barong, to ethnic accoutrements of bamboo and capiz, to tribal beads and other native nuances, spring distinctively strong silhouettes and stylish forms executed in rich jusi piña, abaca and indigenous materials.

It’s Moda Filipiniana reincarnated with a distinctively contemporary attitude.
