Miss Peru Giuliana Valenzuela was named winner of the Best in National Costume Award during the special competition of the 47th Miss Intercontinental held at the Crystal Corridor of Okada Manila.
She was awarded by reigning titleholder Veronica Salas Vallejo and 2010 winner Mayde Columna.
As for our country’s rep, Miss Philippines Karen Gallman wore a “Moriones Festival”-inspired creation by Patrick Isorena.
Description of the costume as
This costume is inspired by the Moryonan also known as the ‘MORIONES FESTIVAL’.
It is a colorful festival celebrated in the island of Marinduque during Holy Week.
The “Moriones” are men and women in costumes and masks replicating the garb of biblical Roman soldiers as interpreted by local folks
This festival also inspired the creation of other festivals in the Philippines where cultural practices or folk history are turned into street festivals.
The Mythical bird ‘SARIMANOK’ was also added to the whole ensemble making it more dramatic.
