Personalities Spotted at Ternocon 3


These notable names showcased the spectacular array of Filipiniana at the third edition of Ternocon

Culture is found and expressed in varied forms and manners. One way of expressing it is through fashion, specifically with our very own terno. Transformed, tied, and tested in many ways than one, its elements are a testament of versatility and creativity—two traits running through the Filipino blood.

In this year’s Ternocon, notable names from different fields graced the occasion in their designers’ varied interpretations of the Balintawak. From classic to contemporary creations of the Filipino terno, here are the different ways these best-dressed celebrities and personalities donned them during the event. 

Regine Velasquez-Alcasid and Ogie Alcasid

The power couple went for looks that forwarded detail in their design, a classic Cheetah Rivera practice. While Ogie went for a tucked-in barong with simple embroidery, Regine wore a fringed, netted Filipiniana with a belt for that cinched waist situation.

Lovi Poe

Undoubtedly a maiden made for cropped tops, the actress wore a lace Martin Bautista terno. The yellow tapis train tied to the skirt is proof that mixing old with new can be good. 

Lucy Torres-Gomez and Richard Gomez

Arriving at the event in neutral hues, the husband and wife went for the tale as old as time terno style. Richard wore an intricately-embroidered barong from designer Randy Ortiz. Meanwhile, Lucy maintained the traditional placement of the alampay and tapis in her gilded Lesley Mobo terno to emphasize her embellished baro. 

Tim Yap

Matching his quirky personality, Tim donned a patterned Puey Quiñones outerwear that you can definitely dress up and down with. 

Mich Dulce

A designer of her own, Mich switched up the piña fabric to a denim and latex Filipiniana. Of course, it is not Mich Dulce without a hat or headpiece to complete the whole ensemble. 

Small Laude

Her name may be Small, but her terno is big and beautiful. The doña also wore a Puey Quiñones Filipiniana with butterfly sleeves inspired from the 1880s.

Xandra Rocha-Araneta

Xandra went for cool and calm in her blue, ruffled terno with frosted lining designed by Abdul Gaffar. The nude gloss look paired well with her whole ensemble.

Dawn Zulueta

Dawn went full on print-on-print in a Lesley Mobo filipiniana. Each element had a different style to it, elevating all pieces together.
