Rabiya Mateo continues to honor Filipino designers at the pre-pageant activities for the Miss Universe 2020 pageant.
The 24-year-old Ilongga beauty queen steps out in a modern terno-inspired suit with "pearls and seashells trimmings."
It shows "the right amount of skin,” and it is “cinched to perfection."
Her terno suit is made by Pampanga-based fashion designer Marlon Tuazon and styled by Rain Dagala and Em Millan.
Rabiya arrived in Los Angeles, California for the Miss Universe 2020 competition on April 10, 2021 (Philippine Time).
Even at the airport, the beauty queen was already making a fashion statement with her Filipino-designed clothes.
She first wore a modern Barong Tagalog-inspired ensemble made by Bacolod City-based fashion designer Chino Christopherson and Quezon City-based couturier Marc Rancy.
Later on, she changed to a printed blazer dress made by Iloilo City-based fashion designer Nono Palmos.
The Miss Universe 2020 grand coronation night will be happening on May 16, 2021 (U.S. time) in the City of Hollywood in Florida.
