This ‘Dinagyang’-inspired National Costume was conceptualized and executed by popular fashion designer Edwin Uy who has already made traditional attires for Bb. Pilipinas (Parul Shah and the headdresses worn by Bianca Guidotti and Yvethe Santiago in their international competitions).
Early buzz is that this ensemble of Neil is in the strong running for Best National Costume.
Wear it proudly, Neil! 🙂
P.S. #2: Below is Neil’s glam shot in formal wear for the 9th Mister International Pageant.
