Behold your #Binibini32 Danica Acuña of Romblon and her Bb. Pilipinas National Costume created by Michael Barassi:
PERLAS NG SILANGANAN
(Notes from the designer)
Cerulean is the water that drapes the archipelagic province of Romblon. And this deep sky-blue hue hides within its chest pearls—pure, incorruptible, and wise as the queen who wears this attire.
Miss Romblon wears the color of the waters that surround the archipelagic province of Romblon, the stretches of white sand beaches which are, arguably, one of the best in the world. Adorned with pearls from her head to toe, she flaunts the serene beauty of these jewels of the seas and the elegance they signify. High above her head is the oyster shell that hides this lustrous gem, representing the hidden wisdom cultivated through years of toil, pressure, and hard work—one Miss Romblon wears loud and proud.
It is always a marvel looking at pearls—nurtured, cherished by the deep sea waters, as stunning as this empowered Romblomanon is.
