  1. The costume is made by the young budding designer , JEARSON DEMAVIVAS . He conceptualized the design and did the intricate bead works and embellishments all by himself. During that time, he had no formal training in designing. Armed with guts and innate skill, he made such superb design. That’s how talented he is!

    The designer aims to showcase a rare fabric ( Tinalak) from his province South Cotabato. Tinalak is an indigenous woven fabric made from abaca by the T’boli tribe. This fabric is dyed with natural vegetable dyes in red and black. The red is said to represent bravery, commitment and love, while the black stands for struggles, hardships and perseverance. The geometric patterns vary from piece to piece, with no two pieces of t’nalak being exactly alike. ( Source: Wikipilipinas).

    No wonder this costume is a winner because it is not just unique, it also embodies A TRUE BLOODIED FILIPINO!

    I hope this will be recognized in the international arena as well. Kudos to Jearson!

  2. Jearson Demavivas winning t’nalak gown creation used by Elizabeth Clenci is so unique, awesome presentation and intricate craftmanship. His works reminds us so much of a Marc Jacobs and Anna Sui collections…Superb!
