Here’s another unique national costume donned by one of our Philippine delegates in the international pageant. This time, it’s the pilot beauty queen Nelda Ibe now competing at the 43rd Miss Globe beauty pageant in Albania.
This Sampaguita and Ilang-Ilang inspired costume was the creation of fashion designer Frederick Berches.
In my opinion, it’s not as spectacular as Karen Ibasco’s Filipiniana costume but I loved that the designer incorporated the fragrant ilang-ilang flower into this piece! It’s quite refreshing to be honest! And kudos to our designers showcasing their talents in the international stage! Bravo!
