It would look like this. Inspired by the famous Pinoy fiestas with a modernized Ati-Atihan flavor. Now doesn’t that sound and look interesting instead of the cake looking costume made by a Colombian designer that MJ Lastimosa wore in the recently concluded Miss Universe pageant?
What if I were to do our national costume for our candidate for the #MissUniverse? I would be inspired by our nations fiesta’s like the Ati-Atihan I would take it from there & modernize it. Perhaps it would look something like this.
Unfortuantely, Miss Philippines MJ Lastimosa’s national costume for Miss Universe 2015 has gotten a lot of flak for looking like either a cake, ice cream, or cupcakes with rosettes adornments and ombre pastel colors. This is the reason why Pinoy designers are now speaking up and questioning why Philippine delegates in International pageants like Miss Universe are made to wear something created by a Non-Filipino designer.
Well, good luck to MJ this Sunday.
This has been an incessant complaint among beauty pageants fan whenever there’s another international beauty pageant wherein the Philippines representatives is wearing a creation from a non-Filipino designer. It does boggle the mind how and why a Filipina Beauty Queen is not wearing a Filipino designer’s gown. It just does not make sense.
