SONA 2013 Fashion-ism

While I do share Senator Miriam's sentiments on who should get the limelight on SONA, part of the reason why I watch it is to see how our officials & their family wore our Filipiniana.   

Sa totoo lang, I'm fascinated with our traditional costume.  And I deeply appreciate when it is given breathing room to grow and showed-off to the world.  One way to be proud of being a Filipino, right?  Maganda talaga sya!  Yun lang, nahahaluan ng politika.

Since we're in the topic, isisingit ko na rin ito.  Brilliant barong paint design!

  1. I hope the Filipiniana costume would gain world prominence. It is soo beautiful!

  2. Si Tootsy ba ung dating from That's Entertainment? They all look stunning!

  3. Ang ganda ni Lucy Torres-Gomez! Mas nahi-highlight DAW kasi ang red carpet walk kaysa sa mismong SONA. But we can't blame people kasi naman ang ganda nga ng Filipiniana dress natin.


Thank you for sharing your "Ohh, that!" thought/s. :)
