Beautiful Women Filipinina Gowns And Dresses
Not everyday do we get to see people wearing Filipinianas and barongs. It has been part of culture and tradition that these vintage staples are only worn during special events such as Araw ng Wika, political parties and events. And that’s pretty much it – the Filipiniana and barong never see the light of day on a daily basis.
Clothing and fashion are signifiers of one’s identity. They are the social fabric of society, as well as markers of cultural beliefs and historical change. Filipiniana clothing such as the Maria Clara gown, the terno, and cultural dress – even the barong – have played important roles in the heritage of the Philippines. Many historical books and museum records mark the evolution of the Filipiniana and barong clothing and how it has shaped personal and community identities of the country.
This 2022, let’s see how the millennials have reinterpreted the Filipiniana and barong for daily casual wear. Let’s see how Filipinos give a modern twist to culture and tradition.

Linggo ng Wika is definitely the perfect occasion to wear a Filipiniana, and that’s exactly what Instagram user @shelialynong did. She wore a small barong Tagalog outfit that fits her small frame just right during an online Linggo ng Wika program at home.
