For her national costume, Ganados wore a dress with silver feathers which was also created by Santiago.

“Our queen @gazzzini and her Philippine Eagle inspired national costume by Cary Santiago. Fly high, Jazzy!” read the caption from Binibining Pilipinas’ Twitter post.

In a Facebook post, Santiago said the national costume’s design had intricate details and was “hand-stitched.”

“I took my inspiration from our national bird. The design is not as flamboyant but the details are very intricate. It is hand-stitched all coming from the same fabric with my signature laser-cut patterns” read the caption.

This is for all the pageant fans out there especially to the supporters of our Miss Universe Philippines Gazini Jordi…
