Behold the Evening Gown of Miss Grand Philippines Samantha Alexandra Panlilio for the Preliminary Competition of Miss Grand International 2021:
A hand embroidered sheer Rian Fernandez cape gown is inspired with the seafaring vessel of the Philippines being the first wooden watercraft excavated in Southeast Asia. The bodice is fully bejeweled with Caribbean Blue opal rhinestones, glass beads, oversized Austrian swarovski crystals. This piece is a perfect way to reawaken Filipino pride in a forgotten heritage of the ancient Filipino ingenuity.

In full bloom. They say that queens blossom even more after their reign. That couldn’t be truer with the 2020 Miss Universe Philippines queens. Their ethereal beauties shine in their last photoshoot as the reigning queens.

This time, Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo glows in an orange Carl Arcusa number.
Orange is a color of freedom, expression, and fascination – qualities that apply to our Queen.

In this blog entry are the different photos of Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo for her editorial shoot with Seven Barretto for Mega Magazine. Below is the inspiration and the credits.
The term maharlika is a loanword from Sanskrit
maharddhika (महर्द्धिक), a title meaning “man of wealth, knowledge, or ability”. Contrary to modern definitions, it did not refer to the ruling class, but rather to a warrior class (which were minor nobility) of the Tagalog people, directly equivalent to Visayan timawa. Like timawa, the term also has connotations of “FREEMAN” or “freed slave” in both Filipino and Malay languages.

Old meets new. (Representing modern Filipina women) &
Inspired by the beautiful works of @lenaberishaofficial
“For a country whose pre-colonial ancestry has left meagre evidence—no grand monuments or architectural structures and very few original manuscripts— these beautifully crafted solid gold pieces are a direct link to our heritage. “The pre-colonial gold bears witness to an advanced society with cultural ties to other, better-known cultures in Asia such as India & Java. It demonstrates that we had the technical skills and resources to produce these wonderful objects. It also suggests familiarity with Hindu-Buddhist ideas that have largely been erased from our cultural memory.”
Seasoned collector, Jomari Treñas, is fascinated by this intermingling of societies and how they are clearly translated in the designs. “You see the different cultures in the gold-making, such as the gold heads or earrings with figures that have very Indian influences.”

Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo glows in this, one of her last photoshoots before flying to the US last April 9. The design – in collaboration with Mikee Andrei – is part of Patrick Isorena’s golden hood accessory creation that was inspired by Priyanka Chopra’s 2018 Met Gala ensemble.
