Wearing Your Heart On Your Terno Sleeve

Last night, at the charming Peninsula Manila, lovers and patrons of culture gathered for the launching of Fashionable Filipinas, a book about the evolution of the Philippine terno. Published by Suyen Corporation Inc. and Slim's Legacy Project Inc., the book is beautifully essayed by Gino Gonzales and Mark Lewis Higgins and features stunning photographs from 1860 to 1960.
Events like this ignite patriotism, and nurtures love for heritage. An army of ladies wore their hearts on their terno sleeves.
The book is available at Bench stores nationwide in hard cover and paperback.
