Interpretations Of Cultural Fashion: See The Personalities Present At This Year’s TernoCon - The Scene

Many notable names graced the third edition of TernoCon with their own designers’ interpretations of our cultural fashion.

To match the occasion, guests arrived at the Cultural Center of the Philippines dressed in different interpretations of traditional Filipino fashion.

Some went with more classic looks like the traje de mestiza complete with tapiz and panuelo, while others chose a more relaxed and contemporary design using light fabrics such as cotton and linen.

There were also guests who went with bold, maximalist designs, showing the full extent of where our traditional dresses could go.

Here are just some of the best-dressed celebrities and personalities who celebrated the cultural event.
