IBONG ADARNA πŸ§‘πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­ The Blazing Siren by @maktumang My preliminary gown was inspired by the ’Ibong Adarna’: a prominent Filipino folklore that is a mythologicalnous bird. Story goes, the Ibong Adarna’s enchanting voice can enable complete healing to anyone who hears it. Some artists liken it to the mythological Phoenix where it recurrently regenerates itself by arising amidst a spectacle of flames and candescence. This makes it a fitting symbol of resilience, rising and rebirth. πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ”₯ My earrings were designed by me and executed by @tesserajewelry as another ode to the Philippines with the Philippine sun and golden South sea pearls, our national gem. πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­ Thank you to @maktumang for his amazing craftsmanship and exquisite execution of this gown, to @justine.aliman19 and @ton_lao for styling in @bragaisjojo heels and @tesserajewelry. Thank you to mamang @hairbybrentsales and @jellyeugenio for teaching me to slay my hair and makeup! And to @carlosbuendiajr, the man behind my walk πŸŒ‹ I love you all!!!
