Olive C 2013 Regional Costume Competition, a Celebration of Beauty and Diversity!

Traditional costumes are just clothes; what makes them stand out is how the wearer carries the creation and proudly represent their identity. I love this part of contest because it gives everyone a deeper meaning of our multicultural heritage. It  embraces our heritage. Regional costumes are not just an identity; it is also a bridge in uniting people thru the uniqueness of their heritage.

Celebration of Beauty and Diversity!

And yesterday’s Regional Costume competition of Mr. and Ms. Olive C 2013 by Psalmstre is not an exemption. Palladium in Mandaluyong City, became the most beautiful place in the country that celebrates heritage, diversity and beauty. Every candidate has a league of fans cheering for them when they sashayed and showcased the best creations from their region. It was truly a celebration of beauty, talent, culture and heritage.
