Behold the National Costume of Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental 2021 Cindy Obeñita for Miss Intercontinental 2021:
“Filipinos have long been in love with the enchantments of a #DIWATA, a mythical goddess whose omnipotence can be likened to Egyptian deities.
Across regional literatures in the Philippines, the character of a Diwata is almost always a mainstay narrative deep-rooted in the culture and daily life of the Filipino.
In this national costume, Cinderella also glides with Cariñosa movements, a Philippine folk dance in the Maria Clara suite.
Prominent in this ensemble is the prestigious color gold, which is a nod to the ancient history of the Philippines and its gold-producing culture, particularly in Mindanao where Cindy proudly comes from. For these gold neck pieces, we collaborated with Mindanao’s crownmaker Tres Cartera and Ben Torres Metalcraft for the beaten brass component of this masterpiece and ALjethro Amorin Sebastian for the leaves fabric manipulation.”
