The official and full video of Yna Mendez Couture: "Montañosa" Collection in Philippine Fashion Gala 2018: Lokal held last June 2, 2018 at Green Sun.
My modern interpretation of the life and culture in Mt. Province, this collection is a tribute for the locals of Sagada, Mt. Province whose culture and stood the test of time despite years of modernization and colonization. The collection shows the beauty of the province's flora and vegetation, mountain ranges, and the beautiful Igorots. The main fabric, the handwoven fabric, was made by the weavers of Sagada Weaving 1968. Models walked barefooted to symbolize dignity and liberalization. The finale girl is the chieftain who exudes power. The modern version of Salidumay used in the show was arranged by Jer Cruz
