Taun-taon, inaabangan ng Binibining Pilipinas fans ang isa sa mga pinakamakulay na bahagi ng pageant: ang National Costume competition.
Suot ang makukulay na disenyo ng iba’t ibang Filipino fashion designer, angat na angat ang ganda ng mga kandidata.
Ngayong taon, marami na ang nakapuna sa mas level up na mga disenyo ng mga National costume.
Hindi pa din nawawala ang mga classic Mindanao-inspired creations dahil sa makulay at makinang ito sa entablado.
Matatandaan din na 2018 ang reigning Miss Universe na si Catriona Gray ang nagningning sa National Costume event ng Binibining Pilipinas.
"In the past, people were born royal. Nowadays, royalty comes from what you do." - Gianni Versace I felt incredibly proud to shed light on the rich, beautiful culture of Mindanao, most specifically Marawi which as of late has been synonymous with war, loss and tradegy. @jearsond took a vision, and brought it to life. His passion for what he does shows in every stone, every thread and every detail. Working with @jearond and his team was a dream and I couldn't think of a better pairing! 😻✨ The look was completed with original, handmade adornments lovingly created by @farah_abu. ✨✨✨ The weaved Inaul fabric unique to the Maguindanaon and Iranun tribes in Muslim Mindanao used in the gown was integrated into traditional style wedge shoes by @bragaisshoes. To my whole team along with @ton_lao, @harleybarleyyy, the creative vision of Jesson Cappuchino, dance choreography of my angels, @mimsqiu for my pasabog nails and @robinhistoria of David's Salon who made me look like a Muslim Princess last night at the @bbpilipinasofficial National Costume show, I love you all!! 😻 To all of my loves who have commented and showed their support either in person or online, thank you! I loved being a princess for a night! Thank you for supporting my journey to be a queen! 14 days to go! 👑 Photography @riaregino / Makeup @chinitohosikusieho / Hair @hairbybrentsales #CatrionaGrayBBP2018 #CatGanern #Binibini20 #BbPilipinas2018
