Notes

This example of a terno is of yellow-gold rayon, and silk mesh made from rengue, a stiff material made from pineapple fiber. Terno comes from the Spanish word baro’t saya meaning “match” and blends several different continental influences. The terno incorporates traditional Filipino embroidery motifs and the use of delicate fabrics. The terno reflects the formality of the Spanish silhouette of the late 19th century.
