—  It was a night of culture and couture at “TernoCon 2024” in Museo del Galeón at the SM Mall of Asia. 

“TernoCon 2024: Kasarinlan, Kultura, Kasuotan” was held on June 10, a fashionable prelude to the 126th Philippine Independence Day. This project is part of the #LoveLocal campaign of Bench and the Cultural Center of the Philippines. 

The incomparable Cary Santiago of Cebu City presented a collection entitled “Ikonograpiya” — a celebration of popular Philippine iconography such as the jeepney, sampaguita, anahaw leaf, Philippine Eagle, carabao, and mangoes rendered in the primary colors of the Philippine Flag.
