History of the Filipiniana
Since the early 20th century, women in the Philippines have worn the traditional Filipiniana dress to celebrate special occasions. Its elegant silhouette and feminine frame are the reasons why it has become synonymous with traditional Filipino fashion and culture.
However like the Filipiniana dress, bespoke/traditional attire have become less commonly worn. In some cases many people feel it’s outdated, out of style or there are limited options to the kind of fit and fabric they can choose from. But with a new generation of designers, limited options are far from the case. And that’s certainly not the case for Filipina women trying to find the perfect Filipiniana dress.
