In an event that aims to celebrate the organization’s new vision of creating a better tomorrow where true beauty establishes the standard for an optimistic future, Mutya ng Pilipinas is finally returning after more than two full years of absence in the national pageantry scene.
Earlier today, a Press Conference was held inside CWC Interiors at the Ground Floor of Milestone in BGC.
Mutya ng Pilipinas Chairman Fred Yuson and President Cory Quirino presided over the event where they announced the Launch of Mutya ng Pilipinas 2022. If you will notice, the “ng” is back, signaling a return to its roots. A November, 2022 schedule has been set for this year’s Finals. Three titles will be handed out:
1) Mutya ng Pilipinas 2022 (the main title but with no pageant assignment yet since Miss Asia Pacific is still postponed this year)
2) Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2022 (appointed rep since the Malaysia-based pageant will have a September playdate)
3) Mutya ng Pilipinas Overseas Communities
A surprise announcement was made by Mr. Yuson regarding the inaugural edition of Miss Mutya International in 2023 – a pageant that will endeavor to assemble the best and most beautiful of Filipinas with foreign lineage as well as international delegates coming from different parts of the world. This effort will be akin to the Miss Maja International which established the “Maja” brand for several decades. “Mutya” will be the first Filipino-named and branded pageant.
This year’s theme for Mutya ng Pilipinas will revolve around inclusivity and sustainability, to go hand-in-hand with the “Shine Hometown Girl” catch phrase started back in 2019.
Holding Miss Mutya International is a wise move by the organization. It is a way of showing the world the richness of the Philippine culture and tradition.
Just like the past MISS MAJA INTERNATIONAL pageant which was held in Spain, the candidates wore the the TRAJE DE FLAMENCA OR TRAJE DE GITANA (Spanish outfit/dress), the mantilla (shawl), the peineta (the comb), and the fan (pericon) during the coronation. Do you think the delegates will don the FILIPINIANA during the crowning or be just part of a segment leading to the coronation?
That would be awesome having this organization establish a NEW INTERNATIONAL PAGEANT with its brand name focusing and celebrating the Filipino/PHILIPPINES’ culture, the same concept as MISS MAJA INTERNATIONAL. So this indicates all the international delegates will be wearing THE TERNO during the finals. Marvelous idea!!!!!
MISS MUTYA INTERNATIONAL 2023 here we come……(mutya means Pearl, dear, beloved and all sorts.)
All the Filipino/a designers will be scouring for ideas with their PHILIPPINES’ terno to be promoted and featured by their respective international delegates/MUSES from all over the world. The world will be mesmerized how beautiful the Filipiniana is as it is showcased the entirety of the pageant. I CAN’T WAIT. Hoping this commence SOON.
