Binibining Pilipinas 2016 Candidates National Costume Fashion Show

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The national costumes of the Philippines varies in design and concept depending on the province, and of course, the designer who creatively imagines every style, curve, twist and turn of the fabric. Almost every year, we see them getting better and more intricate in design and challenging in the materials used. 

"The ladies displayed the creations of some of the country’s established and emerging fashion designers. While many designers stuck to the familiar, tried-and-tested ternos, there were others who took bolder steps in crafting gowns inspired by indigenous culture." -

Though the overall concept remains to be sophisticated, the designs eloquently tries it best to bring out the allure and beauty of every candidate.

The 40 candidates of Binibining Pilipinas 2016 recently showcased their respective national costumes on Wednesday night, April 6 at the Kia Theatre, Araneta Center. As expected, the venue was jampacked with an audience all eager to witness the beauties strut their national costumes on stage.
