MESTIZAS

The Philippine national costume combines both Indigenous and Spanish design as the Philippines was colonised by Spain during 1521-1898. For men the attire is called Barong Tagalog worn over a Camisa. It is made of traditional pineapple fibres. For women the attire is called Baro at Saya which includes a blouse also made of pineapple fibre over a skirt. This project celebrates through painting the various styles of dress including the Maria Clara and Mestiza as well as architecture, furniture, and landscape.
