The National Arts Club presents an exploration of the fashion history of the Philippines with costume designer Raven Ong.
Filipiniana clothing refers to the distinctive aspects of the national costumes in the Philippines. Although the changing world affects the evolution of clothing, influences in fashion are also greatly dictated by colonialism. Philippines is one country that is a perfect example. Colonized for hundreds of years, Philippines has thrived and triumphed,
and has stood the test of time to tell its own unique tale in its fabrics and silhouettes.
