These days, young Filipinas have the world at their feet and an infinite number of options available to them, which includes their choices in fashion. Modernizing the Filipiniana is one way of bringing the past into the present, allowing a whole new generation to appreciate these clothes and make it their own. Over the weekend we shot with lovely ingénue, Emili, for a fresh, more relaxed take on the traditional and formal baro’t saya and barong tagalog. Tradition with more than a dash of fashion makes the perfect re-mix!
