MIKEY ESPINOSA – FILIPINA DRESS – SINGKIL

Because of my visit to the Philippines, I’ve had the opportunity to take in as much of the culture as I can and discovered that because of the Philippines being a melting pot of different cultures from Asia and the west, there have been many influences and changes to various traditional Filipina costumes.

This costume is inspired by the Singkil dance, a traditional Filipino dance that tells the  Hindu story of Ramayana. Megan Young; Miss World is seen wearing a  garment similar to this. singkil-mikey-espinosa-x-filipino-women-3-may-completed-2016
