Edgar San Diego gave us his interpretation of what the modern barongs and Filipiniana's would look like. Focusing on clothes made of natural fibers such as abaca and pinya, he was able to create a wonderful collection that we can truly call Filipino. As it was a collection that commemorated UST's 400 years of existence, he made us of architectural details found all over the university such as the base of columns and even an embroidered version of the Arch of the Centuries! He also utilized the school colors black, gold and white in this collection. Combine that with black stones for jewelry, pearls, capiz shell belts and intricate beadery, Edgar San Diego transports us back to a Spanish-time Manila without having to leave the modernity behind; a modern twist to an old time classic.
