I know that the forty (40) Designers who created the fabulous National Costumes for the Binibinis of Bb. Pilipinas 2017 toiled on their respective works so it is but fitting that we give credit to each one of them.
Let’s start with Binibinis 1-10 dressed up by Rau Uson-Ablaza, Mak Tumang, Joel Acebuche, Albert Figueras, Julius Ornum, Chico Estiva, Jonti Martinez, Bing Cristobal, ChristLee Marcelino and Erich Miñoza as officially photographed by Raymond Saldaña below.

You might have already forgotten about the online voting for your Favorite National Costume, so let this be a gentle reminder to keep the likes (or votes, if you will) coming for the six finalists for the said special award.
Of course, it does work to the advantage of whoever has the strongest supporters among Binibinis Angela Fernando, Paula Rich Bartolome, Maria Lina Prongoso, Dindi Pajares, Jonti Martinez and Angelica Alita. But try going beyond the Binibinis wearing them as well so you can fully appreciate the creations of Designers Frederick Peralta, Joel Acebuche, Polly Lagyap, Cherry Samuya Veric, Jonti Martinez and Bessie Besana.
