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…
