Behold your #Binibini7 Shanon Stampon of Caloocan in her Bb. Pilipinas National Costume created by Armand Marco:
Lakambini ng Himagsikan
(Notes from the designer)
Isang inspirasyon sa mga kababaihang Filipino sa kanyang katapangan at tatag ng paninindigan. Gregoria De Jesus, ang kabiyak ng dibdib ni Andres Bonifacio at hinirang na “Ina ng mga Katipunero” at “Ina ng Himagsikan.” Tagapangalaga ng mahahalagang dokumento, namahala sa pagpapakain at pagpapagamot sa mga Katipunero.
Ang kasuotan ay lumalarawan sa tanyag na Monuménto, ang pangunahing palatandaan ng Lungsod ng Caloocan, simbolo ng mga pangyayari, katapangan at kagitingan ng mga Pilipino. Itinayo dito ang dambana ng tagapagtatag ng Katipunan na si Andres Bonifacio. Ang oktagonang paanan ng paylon na kumakatawan sa unang walong lalawigan na nag-aklas laban sa pamumuno at pananakop ng mga Espanyol. Ang dalawampu’t tatlong estatwa na kasama sa pangyayari na tinaguriang “Unang Sigaw ng Himagsikan sa Balintawak”. Ang bandila ng Katipuanan, na ginawa ni Gregoria De Jesus sa isang kulay pulang tela na karaniwang tinatawag na “kundiman,” ay sumasagisag sa dugo at katapangan ng mga katipunero na handang lumaban at ialay ang buhay para sa kalayaan.
Ang modernong kasuotan ng Lakambini ng Caloocan, ay hango sa kasuotan ni Andres Bonifacio na hawak ang tabak at bandila ng Katipunero. Ito’y sumisimbolo sa mga makabagong kababaihang lumalaban at patuloy na itinataguyod ang karapan ng bawat kababaihan at ng mga naaapi sa lipunan. Isang adhikain na mula noon hanggang ngayon ay patuloy na isinusulong upang manatili ang pagkakapantay sa karapatan ng bawat mamayang Filipino.

Behold your #Binibini13 Samantha Bernardo of Palawan in her Bb. Pilipinas National Costume created by Patrick Isorena:
The Goddess of Pearls
(Notes from the designer)
The costume is purely inspired by the national jewels of Palawan, the Palawan Pearls. We refer to the costume as “The Goddess of Pearls”
Just to give you a trivia, pearl diving has been a significant economic activity in Palawan. In 1934, they produced the world’s largest pearl which was measured by 9.4 inches.
The crown/headdress symbolises grandeur and power which was made up of hundreds of faux pearls.
The backdress which is inspired from Taklobo or Giant Pearl was hand-made from yantok and embelished with white pearls and gemstones. These represent the treasures of the sea.
Samatha’s bodysuit were covered by fabric foam, stones and pearls to symbolize the purity, generosity, and loyalty of its wearer. They are believed to attract wealth and luck as well as offer protection.
