The statement read: "It represents the rich stories and craftsmanship of different tribes and communities throughout the archipelago. It is part of the fabric of our nationality.

"This is an industry we want to continue and help strengthen.

"The theme for this year's National Costume presentation is HABI (weaving) 30% of our finalists' costumes should be comprised of Philippine textiles or weaving."
