A few of you might not know that I do this special collar for Wharton that specialises in Barong Tagalogs. It’s always a nightmare to get some well designed barong tagalogs. Now I can seriously say that the wait is over. Head over to SM stores nationwide where my barongs are as I type being delivered.
I wanted to create barongs that strike a balance between tradition and modernity. I tweaked the proportions a bit by shrinking the length and slimming the pattern down. I also used well loved computer games as the basis for my embroidery. If you look closely you can see the images of Tetris, Pacman, Space Invaders and what have you. I used to spend hours on these classic games when I was younger so I had to incorporate them in the collection.
The fabrics I used for this also is quite modern by using a blend of Jusi, Silk, and Viscose. Thus making our barong less prone to creases and in many ways looks more modern. The price points are also extremely friendly making this one of the best STYLE STEAL DEALS in town! Everyone should have a couple of barongs in our closet I suggest you now make it my barong for WHARTON!
