Filipino fashion designer Francis Libiran unveiled the official designs for Team Philippines’ parade uniforms in the 30th Southeast Asian Games.
Libiran, in an Instagram post, said he wanted to depict the Philippine flags’ “vibrant colors” and “meaningful symbols” in his design which he described as a “modern take” on the Barong Tagalog.
“These designs celebrate pure Filipino pride,” Libiran said.
The garment will be created using “delicate Philippine fibers and materials,” according to the fashion designer.
